00478: Error 47 when viewing records in DDEDIT


Error 47 when viewing records in DDEDIT


Viewing records under field maintance will give an Error 47 (substring out of range) if the field is defined as fixed length and it encounters a field that does not fill the required fixed definition. 

Also as a side note, typically you should define fields as variable length when they are written with field terminators–as when using “write”. What can happen is that all will be okay when viewing fixed fields until it encounters the first field defined as variable, then it appears to start displaying the record over in the remaining fields.
