Statement in Error . . . . . . . . . . : 00010500
Open your source and go to that line (105.00 in the example above). In my source, the line is....
0105.00 C Eval test1 = test1 / test2
Back at the dump, I search for TEST. I see the following lines....
TEST2 ZONED(4,0) . '40404040'X TEST3 CHAR(4) ' ' '40404040'X and TEST1 INT(10) 1 '00000001'X Searching in my source, I find the problem.... 0088.00 D DS 0089.00 D test2 1 4S 0 0090.00 D test3 1 4 Inz(*Blank)
I have been so silly! I have defined a blank field over the top of a numeric field.
Now, I am not usually so silly. But a decimal data error can come from such a thing, or from a failed record read where the record is defined in an uninitialized externally-described data structure, or by invalid data from a passed parameter -- there are several ways of getting bad numeric data. Now you know how to examine your dump along with the source, you should be able to work out the problem and find a solution.
