Error Codes

From BR Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

During your execution of your Business Rules! programs, if something goes wrong, you will probably receive an Error Code.

Contents

General (0001 - 0310)

This contain a list of operating system errors, and operating system error codes as returned by BR!, Novel error codes, as well as printer error codes. It has a small section on error codes no longer in use.

0001

Summary:

Inquiry key pressed

Cause:

  1. Pressing a function key while the program was executing (rather than waiting for input) caused the system to respond to a previous ON ATTN SYSTEM (for F10 key) or ON FNKEY ## SYSTEM statement.
  2. Wrong object name in a DLL call

Remedy:

  1. Enter GO to continue. Later, you may want to modify the program so that the default of ON FNKEY ## IGNORE is reinstated for all ON FNKEY statements
  2. Correct the name, spelling or error-causing string or program statement



0002

Summary:

Conversion or CONV error

Cause:

The program was unable to convert a character string to a number.

Remedy:

Correct the error-causing string or program statement.


0004

Summary:

String overflow

Cause:

The program tried to assign a character string to a variable, and found that the string was longer than the maximum length dimensioned for the variable.

Remedy:

Shorten the string or enlarge the defined variable length.

0005

Summary:

Help key pressed and not trapped

Cause:

The help key was pressed during program.

Remedy:

Global trapping of help key usage requires that On Help be specified in the program.

0006

Summary:

Division by zero

Cause:

Tried to divide by zero.

See also: wikipedia:Division_by_zero

Remedy:

Change computations so that division by zero is not required.


Divide by zero.jpg

0053

Summary:

Attempt to write to an existing record

Cause:

A write statement used the keyword REC for an existing record rather than for a deleted record; writing to an existing record is not allowed.

Remedy:

Correct the WRITE statement that caused the error. To specify a record that has not been deleted, remove the REC= clause and write to the end of the file or use REWRITE to overwrite the existing record.

0054

Summary:

Out of data for Read

Cause:

A Read statement is trying to read more data than is provided in Data statements.

Remedy:

Add more data in the Data statements, use an EOF error condition to trap the error, or use a Restore statement to reset the Data statement pointer.

0057

Summary:

NoRec / Record not found

Cause:

A program tried to access a record in a relative file but could not find the record (record was deleted or is beyond end of file), or an index file points to a record that does not exist in the keyed file or was deleted.

Remedy:

Correct the error-causing program statement to specify a valid record number. Or add a NoRec error trap to the end of the line. LRec(file number) returns the number of the last record in the file.

0058

Summary:

I/O string overflow

Cause:

  1. An I/O statement (Read, Write, Print or Input) tried to read data into a string variable that wasn't dimensioned large enough.
  2. When creating a Grid and List

Remedy:

  1. Shorten the string or increase the dimension length of the string variable.
  2. The FORMS$ matrix field lengths have to agree (DIM EXACTLY) with the variables that you are reading them into/out of.

0059

Summary:

Attempt to rewrite over key field

Cause:

A REWRITE operation is trying to rewrite over the key field in the master record. (2.x releases only.)

Remedy:

Change the REWRITE statement so that the key field is not changed.

0061

Summary:

Time out on locked record

Cause:

This error occurs when the system times out on a locked record. It also occurs when a sort is aborted by an operator due to a locked record. Possibly some other computer has the record open or the operating system has the record locked.

Remedy:

Perhaps a record should not be locked this long. Check other workstations to see which one is locking the record, and unlock it. The Status Locks command may be helpful. Enter retry to retry the operation. If the error occurs during a sort, it can be trapped with the ERR function and acted upon by the procedure.If that doesn't work try to reboot the workstation that has the file locked, and if that doesn't work, try to reboot the file server (this releases all locks by all workstations and server) If nothing else works, first try: Free WBServer.dat then try copying file with a -d and recreating all indexes.

  • In rare situations, this error will indicate a problem with damaged header or index files. As a precaution try copying the file with a -d and recreating all indexes.

0062

Summary:

Record not locked

Cause:

ReWrite or Delete attempted to a record that is not locked.

Remedy:

Remove the Release keyword from the corresponding Read or ReRead, or read the record again. When updating multiple records, use Reserve to keep previously locked records locked. If you are trying to use ReRead, Reserve, instead use READ, SAME

0063

Summary:

Network locking error

Cause:

The Network indicated a general failure locking a record.

Remedy:

Network is not functioning properly; fix the Network.

0105

Summary:

Variable is not an array

Cause:

A non-array variable was specified in a MAT statement.

Remedy:

Change the MAT statement so that it uses an array variable.

0106

Summary:

Array size conflict

Cause:

One of two problems occurred:

  1. The array sizes in a Mat statement do not match or,
  2. Mat grouping (in a Input/ Print/ RInput Fields statement) was attempted with mismatched array sizes.

Remedy:

  1. Make sure that the dimension size of the arrays in the Mat statement are the same.
  2. Make sure that the dimension size of the arrays in the Mat grouping are the same.

0108

Summary:

Maximum String Length (32,767) Exceeded

Cause:

A string functions yields a result that exceeds the maximum length of a string (32,767 bytes), such as RPT$("=", 36000).

Remedy:

Rearrange your logic so that you may manage multiple pieces of the large string.

0120

Summary:

Illegal array sub-script element

Cause:

An illegal array subscript was used.

Remedy:

Make sure that each array subscript is between 0 and the maximum array size+1.

0121

Summary:

Illegal reference to an array

Cause:

An illegal reference to an array exists in the program.

Remedy:

Change the program so that it defines and uses arrays properly. Check that your program does not try to use a two-dimensional array as a one-dimensional array or vice-versa.

0122

Summary:

Illegal array element

Cause:

  1. An invalid array element has been specified.
  2. (Macintosh) Reference to mapped network drive lost
  3. double instance of an or in an If statement

Remedy:

  1. Check to see that each specified element falls within the array's allowable range. It must not be larger than the dimensioned (or re-dimensioned) value, or negative, or invalid for the BASE in which the program is functioning.
  2. Mount network drive
  3. remove the repeated or

0123

Summary:

Dimension conflict

Cause:

The number of provided array dimensions does not match the number specified in the Dim statement.

Remedy:

Change the DIM statement or match the required number of dimensions.

0130

Summary:

attempt to redim a multi dimensional array in a system function

Cause:

attempt to redim a multi dimensional array in a system function This Error is available as of Business Rules! release 4.2.

Remedy:


0201

Summary:

Return without GoSub

Cause:

A Return statement occurs without a preceding GoSub statement.

Remedy:

Ensure that the execution of a GoSub statement precedes the processing of each Return statement.

0202

Summary:

Function not active

Cause:

  1. An FNEND statement was encountered when no function was active.
  2. A Function called a GOSUB and attempted to exit the function (via FNEND) before returning from the gosub

Remedy:

  1. Fix the program so that the FNEND statement is encountered only when a function is active.
  2. Repair the faulty logic, make sure there is no way out of your gosub except by RETURN

0211

Summary:

Retry or Continue attempted

Cause:

The program specifies a Retry or Continue statement when no previous error has occurred.

Remedy:

Correct the program logic so that Retry or Continue are used only after an error has occurred.

0213

Summary:

Line reference not found

Cause:

Reference to a line number or label that does not exist. During Save or Replace commands, this error is a warning message; the Save or Replace continues.

Remedy:

Correct or add the line number or label.

0220

Summary:

Next before For

Cause:

A NEXT statement occurs before it's correspondence FOR statement.

Remedy:

Place the FOR statement before its corresponding NEXT statement.

0221

Summary:

Missing For statement

Cause:

Missing For or mismatched For/Next variables. Some possibilities:

  1. A Next statement with no preceding For statement is encountered.
  2. The variables for the For and Next statements do not match
  3. The loop variable of the preceding For statement does not match the variable in the Next statement

Remedy:

  1. Place a For statement before the Next statement or remove the Next statement. If you are using an editor than this may be due to out of order line numbers.
  2. Correct the spelling of one of the two variables.
  3. Make sure that the loop variable match for corresponding FOR/NEXT statements.

0222

Summary:

Missing Next statement

Cause:

Missing FOR or mismatched FOR/NEXT statements. Some possibilities

  1. A NEXT statement with no preceding FOR statement is encountered.
  2. The loop variable of the preceding FOR statement does not match the variable in the NEXT statement.

Remedy:

  1. Place a FOR statement before the NEXT statement or remove the NEXT statement.
  2. Make sure that the loop variables match for corresponding FOR / NEXT statement.

Note: Prior to release 3.50, this error code applied to either a missing NEXT statement or an improperly terminated IF structure. It now applies only when a NEXT statement is missing. Business Rules! now responds to improperly terminated IF structures with error code 1124.

0223

Summary:

FOR NEXT Variable mismatch

Cause:

Previous FOR statement with same variable still active.

Remedy:

Use a different variable with this FOR statement.

0230

Summary:

Not an Exit statement

Cause:

An I/O statement specifies the EXIT error condition, but the program line referenced after EXIT does not contain an Exit statement.

Remedy:

Change the EXIT parameter's line number to match the EXIT statement.

0301

Summary:

Def conflict number of parameters.

Cause:

User defined function parameters do not match the parameter list in the Def statement.

Remedy:

Ensure that the variable in the user function are of the same type (numeric, string, array, etc) as those in the Def statement.

0302

Summary:

Library Function not defined (during Save or Replace)

Cause:

  1. A User Defined Function was referenced (used) but not defined. The Save or Replace operation continued, but the program will not be able to run.
  2. Attempt to use an internal function (i.e. Str2Mat) in a version of Business Rules! which did not support the internal function.

Remedy:

  1. Each undefined function name is displayed on the line 24 (24th row) of the command console and above. Define the function with the Def statement or correct the program statement that tried to use that function.
  2. Make the use of the internal function conditional based upon WBVersion$, or upgrade to a newer version of Business Rules!

0303

Summary:

Illegal pass by reference to user defined function

Cause:

Attempted to pass a literal to a user-defined function when the function was expecting a variable.

Remedy:

Pass a variable or remove the ampersand (&) from the function's Def statement.

0304

Summary:

Def Variable type conflict

Cause:

  1. The number/type/order of parameters passed in a user-defined function does not match the number required by the Def statement.
  2. Inline variable setting within user defined function calls should be set with :=, not =. This does not present a problem until the function call is nested within other logic such as an if statement.

Remedy:

  1. Either match the number of parameters to that specified in the Def statement or change the Def statement.
  2. Change lines like:
if fnX(y=5)=-1 then let z=2

to

if fnX(y:=5)=-1 then let z=2

0305

Summary:

Library function not named on LIBRARY statement

Cause:

A SAVE or REPLACE was executed on a program that defines a library function (DEF LIBRARY FNname), and calls the library function, but the function is not listed on any LIBRARY statements in the program. A list of the functions that this condition applies to is displayed on the screen when this error is generated.

Remedy:

BR completed the SAVE or REPLACE operation as requested. However you will need to add the missing LIBRARY statement reference before running the program.

0306

Summary:

FnEnd not matched with Def in program structure

Cause:

An FnEnd occurred without a preceding Def statement or in a programming structure such as a For/Next loop or a GoSub.

Remedy:

Match the FnEnd with a Def statement; remove the user-defined function from the programming structure.

0307

Summary:

Inactive user defined function

Cause:

Attempt to assign a value to a user-defined function that is not active.

Remedy:

Correct the program. The most likely cause is a GOTO to the middle of a user-defined function. A FN Variable cannot be assigned unless the user-defined function it names has been called and the FNEND has not yet been encountered.

0309

Summary:

Illegal nesting of Def

Cause:

  1. The program illegally nests DEF statements; one user-defined function cannot be contained within another.
  2. possibly line numbers out of order

Remedy:

  1. Eliminate nested Def statements.
  2. renumber the non consecutive line numbers

0310

Summary:

Missing FNEND statement

Cause:

A function (DEF statement) occurs without its accompanying FNEND statement.

Remedy:

Add an FNEND statement to terminate the action of the function.

DLL Defined (0311 - 0364)

0311

Summary:

BRDLL_DCOM_Error

Cause:

  1. BRDLL_DCOM_Error
NOTE: This error is generated by BRVB_MGR.DLL, and it is only generated when you are trying to use a VB executable to extend BR functionality, and BR is unable to find that VB executable.
  1. BR could not find BRVB_MGR.DLL

Remedy:

  1. Make sure your PAINTED or BR_VB project is registered in the windows registry (by double clicking on the EXE file) and make sure that DCOMKEY.EXE is registered in the windows registry (by double clicking on it too.) Use REGCLEAN if necessary to determine that BR can find your new executable.
  2. Make sure BRVB_MGR.DLL is located in the same folder as BR.EXE.

0312

Summary:

BRDLL_Unhandled_VB_Error

Cause:

  2. possibly you've got something assigned to a container, which isn't there.

Remedy:

.

0315

Summary:

An attempt was made to re-dimension a sub-array

Cause:

An attempt was made to re-dimension a sub-array. Sub-arrays cannot be re-dimensioned. This error could mean that you passed a singular variable to a user defined function that expected an array.. which then tried to re-dimension the array to 0 i.e.

0010 mat array(0)

This error may also occur if you try to re-dimension an optional array parameter of function that was not passed. i.e.

0010 let fna(mat x)
0020 def fna(mat y;mat z)
0030    mat z(1)
0040 fnend

Remedy:

Check for a missing MAT in your function call. This common typo often causes this error.

0320

Summary:

Duplicate Local or Library Function definition

Cause:

A user-defined function was defined by more than one Def statement or was identified in both Def and Library statements.

Remedy:

Remove the extra definition or Def or Def Library statement.

  3. You specified Key information but forgot the ",Keyed" at the end of the statement.

Remedy:

  1. Add the missing KFName specification.
  2. If no key was specified for a file to be opened Keyed, either add the key or delete the Keyed keyword from the open string.If a key file name was specified for a non-keyed file, either remove the KFName specification or add the Keyed keyword to the end of the Open statement.
  3. Add ",Keyed" to the end of the statement.

0608

Summary:

open permission conflict

Cause:

Conflict in multiple open statement permissions. Once a file (and index) is opened for input by a program then all subsequent opens to the same file (and index) must also specify input.

Remedy:

If other users must gain access to the file (and index), the original open should be for Shr, input. Subsequent opens from the same program may then further restrict access by other users when necessary. If you are attempting to open a file twice in the same program, once for input and once for OutIn, the open for OutIn must be executed first.

1011

Summary:

Illegal immediate statement

Cause:

Use of statement which does not qualify as an immediate statement.

Remedy:

Statements without line numbers are immediate statements; Business Rules! attempts to execute them immediately. Certain statements such as GOSUB and DEF cannot be acted upon immediately, and are therefore valid only with a line number or line label.

1012

Summary:

Illegal line number

Cause:

Use of an illegal line number.

Remedy:

Line numbers must be greater than or equal to 1, and less than or equal to 99999.

1020

Summary:

Missing parenthesis

Cause:

Occurrence of an unbalanced parenthesis.

Remedy:

Add the missing parenthesis. The left parenthesis "(" and right parenthesis ")" must be paired.

1022

Summary:

Missing keyword

Cause:

Add the missing keyword.

Remedy:

.

1024

Summary:

Missing colon

Cause:

A colon is missing.

Remedy:

Add the missing colon. For example, change CLOSE #1 to CLOSE #1:

1026

Summary:

Illegal expression

Cause:

  1. Use of an illegal expression. - For example, a variable or function name that is too long.
  2. string literal too large
  3. a new array is attempted to be created in a program at run time

Remedy:

  1. Check string and numeric expressions for syntax errors or errors in logic.
  2. String literals may be no greater than 250 characters in length.
  3. end the program and dim the array in the program before attempting to use it.

1030

Summary:

Illegal character expression

Cause:

  1. Use of an illegal character expression.
  2. May be caused by an attempt to pass a single element of an array in a Chain statement, such as in the illegal statement: CHAIN "program name",C$(1).
  3. X$=X
  4. Initial Array size is too large. (See System Limits)
  5. ",wait" must follow ",attr=" in rinput select statements.
  6. setenv$ specified

Remedy:

  1. Check string expressions for syntax errors or errors in logic.
  2. If attempting to pass an array element, you must pass the entire array with the MAT keyword instead: CHAIN "program name",MAT C$
  3. X$=Str$(X)
  4. Dim the array to something smaller than 10000 then Mat it larger.
  5. reverse the order of the parameters.
  6. correct spelling to setenv

1032

Summary:

Invalid Variable name

Cause:

Variable name is reserved word or DIMONLY violation. One of the following situations has occurred:

  1. A specified variable name is a BR reserved word and is not capable of receiving an assigned value.
  2. An undimensioned variable name was referenced while CONFIG DIMONLY was active.

Remedy:

  1. Replace the function name or sub-string reference with a valid variable. For example, the statement INPUT SQR(4) could be changed to: INPUT SQ(4). (Sqr is a reserved word.)
  2. Correct the specified variable name, dimension the desired variable name, or turn DIMONLY processing off.

1033

Summary:

Invalid scalar Variable in MAT

Cause:

Illegal use of scalar variable in MAT grouping. Only MAT variables can be used in variable groupings with INPUT / RINPUT / PRINT FIELDS statements.

Remedy:

Make sure that each matrix variable in the grouping is preceded by the MAT keyword. To include a scalar variable in the I/O list of an INPUT / RINPUT / PRINT FIELDS statements, be sure to place the scalar outside the MAT grouping parentheses as in the following code fragment: INPUT FIELDS A$: B$, (MAT C$, MAT C)

1036

Summary:

Illegal string data

Cause:

  1. String data occurs in a numeric expression.
  2. some_string$=some_number

Remedy:

  1. String expressions may contain only string data; numeric expressions may contain only numeric data. Fix the error-causing expression.
  2. some_string$=str$(some_number)

1038

Summary:

Illegal time

Cause:

The time or date is illegal

Remedy:

.

1040

Summary:

Illegal numeric expression

Cause:

  1. Use of an illegal numeric expression. Attempt to print a variable value from immediate mode when the variable is a valid abbreviation for a Business Rules! keyword.
  2. Use of a numeric variable that is too long
  3. Srch parameters are juxtapositioned.
  4. keyword (like menu) used as a variable.

Note: If you are procing in a program the error may be on the next line

Remedy:

  1. Precede the name of the variable you are trying to print with the print statement. Check numeric expressions for syntax errors or errors in logic
  2. Use a shorter variable name
  3. switch the parameters within the Srch call to the correct sequence.
  4. Choose a different variable name

1042

Summary:

Syntax error in an internal function

Cause:

Caused by invalid number of required parameters or format specifications or invalid values within those parameters.

Remedy:

Correct the function call.

1050

Summary:

Compiled statement too long

Cause:

A compiled statement is too long.

Remedy:

Shorten the statement until the system does not give the error. The maximum line length is 800 characters in version prior to 4.2 and 2000 in version 4.2+. However, Business Rules! must be able to compile the line into 255 characters or less.

Furthermore BR! 4.18 and before can handle no more than 35 libraries declared with a single Library statement

To quickly test a form statement from the command line, CForm$ can be used.


1060

Summary:

Source statement or Config command too long

Cause:

  1. A source statement or a CONFIG command is too long.
  2. Listing of a Program Fails

Remedy:

  1. Shorten the statement to 800 characters or less, or shorten the Config command to 128 characters or less.
  2. If, for example, you OPEN #0: "Cols=100" and load an existing program with very long lines and attempt to list it you will get this error.

As of 10/08/2006 the BR! Editor is not yet ready for this, please set the columns back to 80 and try again. Please note that changing the number of rows does not cause this error.

1070

Summary:

Invalid Variable name

Cause:

  1. Undefined variable name. A variable name was specified that was either invalid or not defined. One situation where this error can occur is when a FORM variable is not defined. In the following example, the variable P is used to identify the POS position. If P is not previously defined, this error will occur during execution: PRINT USING "FORM POS P, N 12.2": D
  2. Break used in conjunction with an otherwise unused variable or internal function (like fkey)
  3. Break Off attempted for a variable that did not have break turned on

Remedy:

  1. Define the variable.
  2. Check the spelling of the variable.
  3. if automating break points use a temp variable to remember if you turned break on for something so you can test if it needs break to be turned off before attempting to turn it off.

1080

Summary:

Too many variables in a single chain or read statement

Cause:

  1. Too many variables are used in a chain statement.
  2. Too many variables in a single read statement.

Remedy:

  1. Reduce the number of variables to 62 or less.
  2. split the read into two reads

1100

Summary:

Illegal multiple statement operations

Cause:

Illegal multi-statement operation. BR! does not permit the use of Data, Def, Dim, Exit, Form or Option statements on the same program line number as any other statement.

Remedy:

Place the offending instruction on its own program line.

1102

Summary:

END IF or END DEF followed by another statement

Cause:

An END IF or END DEF statement has been followed by a colon and another statement. The only statement, which may legally follow END IF or END DEF, is the END statement.

Remedy:

Remove the statement following the END IF or END DEF and place it on another line.

1120

Summary:

Nested IF not allowed

Cause:

Occurrence of an IF,THEN,IF sequence in a single-lined IF statement.

Remedy:

Remove the invalid IF statement or block it over more than one line

1121

Summary:

Open ended THEN or ELSE not allowed

Cause:

An open-ended THEN or an open-ended ELSE is specified on an ELSE clause. This error code was implemented in BR release 3.65c to reduce ambiguity in the IF structure. Programs that Worked prior to this release will encounter an error on 3.56c+ releases after when they are recompiled from source if they utilize this programming method.

Remedy:

Move the ELSE clause to a separate statement. Or, if this BR change causes an extended problem in your applications, contact BRC for a work around.

1124

Summary:

If terminated improperly

Cause:

Improperly terminated If structure. A multi-lined If structure is terminated improperly.

Remedy:

Make sure that the multi-lined If is terminated with either a single lined Else or with an End If statement.

1125

Summary:

Invalid multi-lined If operator

Cause:

Multi-lined IF operator not preceded by a multi-lined If. Or For/Next loop conflict with multi-lined if.

Remedy:

Make sure that the unmatched End If or Else statement is preceded by a multi-lined If statement.

1126

Summary:

Missing LOOP statement

Cause:

Missing LOOP statement. A DO statement appears with no corresponding LOOP statement.

Remedy:

Remove the DO statement or add the missing LOOP statement.

1127

Summary:

Missing Do statement

Cause:

A Loop statement appears with no corresponding Do statement.

Remedy:

Remove the Loop statement or add the missing Do statement

1130

Summary:

Illegal FNEND

Cause:

An FNEND statement is illegally located within an IF statement.

Remedy:

Remove the FNEND statement from within the IF statement.

1131

Summary:

Illegal Def or FnEnd

Cause:

A user-defined function or an FnEnd statement is located within a programming structure such as a multi-lined If or a For/Next loop. It's usually caused by having a Def for a function without a matching FnEnd. It could also indicate a problem within the defined function such as a multi-line IF that does have the End If before then FnEnd or a For/Next loop where one or the other falls outside the DEF.. FnEnd

Remedy:

Remove the user-defined function or FnEnd statement from the structure or Find the missing For, Next, Def, or FnEnd and add it. "I have seen this error when trying to do the ReNum where saving the program first, then reloading it allows the ReNum to take place."

1135

Summary:

Invalid Variable Name

Cause:

Invalid Variable Name

Remedy:

Variable names must be less than 30 characters in length

1140

Summary:

Illegal or missing line label

Cause:

  1. Use of an illegal line label or a required line label or line reference was not specified.
  2. Let not used, but required. (i.e. If X then fndo_thing)

Remedy:

  1. Remove all illegal characters from the error-causing line label; line labels must begin with an alphabetic character and may not exceed 30 characters. If a line label or reference is missing, add the appropriate reference.
  2. Add a Let to your statement. (i.e. If X then let fndo_thing)

1150

Summary:

Illegal change or deletion of active line

Cause:

Illegal change to or deletion of active line. Can occur when a change is made to the line that called an active user-defined function. Can also occur when a statement within a multiple-statement line has caused an error and then a change is made to another statement on the same line, or when a GOSUB is active and attempting to change the line that called the GOSUB.

Remedy:

Continue the program or END it and change the line.

1152

Summary:

Program is active

Cause:

Statement not accepted while program is active. DIM, DEF, LIBRARY and OPTION statements may not be added to an active program.

Remedy:

END the program before entering the statement.

1154

Summary:

Unexpected formatting applied during Edit

Cause:

  1. During an edit an extra space was added after a !: (line continuation)
  2. During an edit a line which was too long was encountered.
  3. During an edit a line continuation error was encountered, in one such case the preceding line did not have a !: where it should have been.
  4. During an edit a comment was found on a line with no line number
  5. During an edit an ! (exclamation point for a comment) was immediately following a line number without a space in between.
  6. use of a 31 character variable name. (30 is the maximum.)

Remedy:

If none of the following apply and you are using EDI, try reloading the editor's source file into BR! as source.

  1. Repair offending line in Source code and re-import that code into BR!
  2. Repair offending line in Source code and re-import that code into BR!
  3. Repair offending line in Source code (by adding a !: in the appropriate place) and re-import that code into BR!
  4. Add a line number or add a line continuation to the previous line
  5. Add the missing space between the line number and the !
  6. To find this error one may
clear all
load path\program.br.brs,so
list -99999
the line after the last one listed was the problem.  (or at least the first instance of it)

1156

Summary:

Duplicate line numbers during Edit

Cause:

Duplicate line numbers encountered during Edit command processing

Remedy:

Correct the offending line numbers.

  • To find the the offending line number MyEditBR's HWEs could be employed. (If MyEditBR does not show the error and it's been monitoring the file, try closing and reopening MyEditBR)
  • Also renumbering may be an option.

Summary:

Line number not present

Cause:

The line specified in the Del command is not present in memory.

Remedy:

Correct the line number in the Del and issue it again.

2003

Summary:

Illegal line number sequence

Cause:

Use of an illegal line number sequence. In the following example, a LIST command attempts to list lines in reverse order; this line would cause this error: LIST 500 100

Remedy:

Line numbers must be referenced in sequential order; change any references that are incorrect.

2005

Summary:

No lines available for LIST

Cause:

No lines exist in memory.

Remedy:

LOAD the desired program before attempting a LIST.

2020

Summary:

Illegal ReNum range

Cause:

Specification of an illegal ReNum range.

Remedy:

Cause:

  1. The program has been changed by another workstation since the copy was loaded by this workstation.
  2. You tried to List a line of code in program that you did not load twice. you probably had a library loaded into memory when you first loaded this program

Remedy:

  1. Save the program under a different name. Compare the programs and reconcile the changes.
  2. BRC has fixed this problem. However if you're using an older version of BR! than press F2 to bring back your last executed line and press enter on it again.

2160

Summary:

Load Failure

Cause:

BR! failed to properly load source code for editing.

Remedy:

Load programs twice before trying to view source. If you encounter this error during a PROC, you may need to load programs as many as five times.

2198

Summary:

No Default Printer.

Cause:

This error occurs when {PRN}:/DEFAULT is specified, but there is printer set as the windows default printer.

Remedy:

Sometimes, usually in a case of corruption or viruses (i.e. Nimda) Windows 98 does not load the printer drivers at all, you can simply reboot the computer and the process will work.

2220

Summary:

Missing or duplicate file specification

Cause:

  1. Occurrence of a missing file specification (i.e. LOAD )
  2. Occurence of a duplicate file specification (i.e. RUN >DUP >DUP), or a duplicate file.

Cause:

Internal file, display file, or program file was erroneously used as a key file.

Remedy:

.

4122

Summary:

Invalid access for file type

Cause:

Mismatch between file type and type of access attempted.

  1. When opening an table as Internal, this error means that the Header is damaged.
  2. This error could result from an attempt to direct information to a printer or display file when the file has been opened internal.
  3. Similarly, a statement could be attempting to call help with a file name that does not represent a help file.
  4. This error could also result from an attempt to open the same file twice from the same workstation as internal and either external or display. After a file is opened internal at a workstation, only internal is allowed for additional opens on the same file.
  5. Another cause of this error occurs when an attempt is made to open a program file as a key file.
  6. You've attempted to List < a Source File
  7. A program file won't load in a br version prior to 4.2 because you saved it in 4.2 previously

Remedy:

  1. Correct the OPEN statement.
  2. (S/23-MODE is ON) An Open statement tried to open a key file as an internal file.
  3. (S/23-MODE is ON) An OPEN statement tried to open an internal file as a display file.
  4. (S/23-MODE is ON) An OPEN statement tried to open a key file as an internal file.
  5. (S/23-MODE is ON) An OPEN statement tried to open a program file as a display file.
  6. add Option 60 to your 4.2 BR installation and reload and replace the program file, than older versions of BR should be again able to load and run the program.

4123

Summary:

Incomplete record or corrupted B-Tree file.

Incomplete record due to corrupted B-tree file. It may be related to the method used for 31 bit locking if the index file exceeds the allowed size.

Remedy:

Re-Index the file.

4124

Summary:

Invalid header record for internal file

Cause:

  1. Invalid header record for internal file. Usually caused by porting an internal file between machines with Intel and non-Intel CPUs, without running the file conversion program to change the header record.
  2. kfname and name segments of your open statement specify the same file name

Remedy:

  1. End the program and run the proper conversion program (either wb2unix or wb2dos).
  2. correct the incorrect file name

4125

Summary:

Data file VERSION error

Cause:

VERSION number of existing file does not match VERSION number specified in OPEN INTERNAL statement.

Remedy:

Update the file if it is old or correct the VERSION number in the OPEN INTERNAL statement.

4126

Summary:

File abnormally truncated

Cause:

The BR Header does not match the actual # of records in the data file. For example a Copy filed to copy the entire file or Business Rules! was terminated in the middle of a program, by pressing Ctrl+Alt+Delete.

Usually this means that some data was lost.

Remedy:

.

4147

Summary:

Record lock limit exceeded. Or a file has been opened too many times at the share level. This also happens if the file size exceeds the maximum allowed by the File System (2GB for Fat32).

Cause:

Could not lock The operating system limit for the total number of record locks has been exceeded. Couldn't lock file sharing status byte

Remedy:

Reconfigure the operating system to allow for more record locks or log another user out and continue the program.Check to see that the correct SHR parameters were specified in the OPEN statement. If so, change the program so that it does not violate the file-sharing rules or wait for release of the file in use. Also, (for earlier BR! versions only) be sure that your IBMNET or NOVELL specification (in the BRCONFIG.SYS file) is correct OR Ask other users to exit the file and/or reboot the file server.

If the file is very large, reduce the file size or upgrade to a newer OS that allows for larger files. This frequently happens for log files, which can usually just be moved to a new location and cleared out.

4148

Summary:

File sharing violation

Cause:

Violation of file sharing rules. Attempt to access a file that is in use and cannot be shared. Most likely one of the following occurred:

  1. Some other computer has the file open without sharing it.
  2. You need non-shared access to a file and another computer has it opened.
  3. The operating system (or another program) has locked the file.
  4. Opening an indexed file where the name and the kfname the same

Remedy:

  1. Check to see that the correct Shr parameters were specified in the Open statement. If so, change the program so that it does not violate the file-sharing rules or wait for release of the file in use.
  2. Use Status Locks to determine which workstation has the file locked.
  3. Possibly an anti-virus program, or any number of other programs.
  4. correct the mistake

4197

{{Error |4197 |Interrupts changed during shell call |An ill behaved program run during a shell call changed some interrupts that Business Rules memory swapper requires. |Try to identify the ill-behaved program (consider all TSR's and other programs you are using during your shell call), then stop using the software or contact the manufacturer for a correction.(used in terminal.cdw, comments are "Interrupt 0 is unsafe", "Interrupts changed", and "never occurs with defaults")

OS Errors

Operating System Errors may vary from OS to OS. In older versions of Business Rules! errors in the 4200 series were all Operating System Errors. The error number was calculated internally by BR by adding 4200 to the OS Error Number. Sometimes the resulting error code exceeded 4299 which conflicted with Unix / Linux error codes. Therefore in 4.16 this method was been replaced by generating BR errors 4300 and 4320, in combination with SysErr$ and SysErr.

But most importantly, check the value of the variables SysErr and SysErr$ for a description of the error.

For more information about Microsoft DOS and Windows OS Error Numbers see:


Operating System Error 72 - Print or disk redirection is paused. 267 - The directory name is invalid.



4201

Summary:

DEPRECATED ERROR, as of 4.30: Operating System Error 1

Cause:

This error would normally occur in Business Rules only if memory has been corrupted. Invalid function number.

Remedy:

Try reloading from source. If this does not work, contact your dealer or BRC for assistance.

4202

Summary:

DEPRECATED ERROR, as of 4.30: Operating System Error 2

Cause:

One of the following has occurred:

  1. The specified file cannot be found. This is a command version of error 4152.
  2. Operating System's COMSPEC environment variable is not specified or invalid.

Remedy:

  1. Correct errors in the file name or specified path; also be sure that the correct disk is in the specified drive and that the correct default directory is used.
  2. Make sure that the Operating System environment variable COMSPEC is set and that it points to the COMMAND.COM on the boot disk

4203

Summary:

Operating System Error 3. Path does not exist or is not a directory

Cause:

One of the following situations has occurred:

  1. Bad path in a library statement
  2. Invalid path name. The specified path cannot be found; could not locate the directory as specified.
  3. Index file name and work directory name may be the same.
  4. Invalid WORKPATH specified in BRConfig.sys.

Remedy:

  1. Correct the path; be sure that the specified directories exist on the disk in the specified drive and that the correct default directory is in use.
  2. Be sure that the work directory is separate from the INDEX directory.Correct the WORKPATH specified in the BRConfig.sys file
  3. See first resolution.
  4. See first resolution.

4204

Summary:

Operating System Error 4. Too many file handles open on the system level

Cause:

The maximum number of files allowed by the operating system is already open, a system setting must be set higher.

Remedy:

Close some of the files that are currently open. For DOS, check to see if the config.sys file's FILES specification is set to 20 or more. Check to see if the system was booted from a diskette without a config.sys file.For Network systems, check the Network parameters for the total number of files that can be opened system wide. Keep in mind that open procedure, index and HELP files all count as open files. Also note that BR opens a file whenever a shell call is performed while memory is enabled.(DOS through Windows 98) add a line to the config.sys file stating "Files=100"(Windows XP and 2000) add a line to the SYSTEM.INI file in the [386enh] section stating "PERVMFiles=100"

4205

Summary:

Operating System Error 5 (Access Denied)

Cause:

Some possibilities

  1. Use of an invalid file or path name.
  2. OPEN OUTPUT or OPEN OUTIN specified for a file that is write-protected.
  3. Attempt to open a directory name as a file name.
  4. Attempt to access the BR work path without permission(Example: Attempt to LIST without WRITE permission to the WORKPATH; Attempt to perform a shell call on Novell with memory swapping enabled, but no permission to access WORKPATH directory.)
  5. Attempt to access the SPOOLPATH without Network permissions(Example: Attempt to close a file on NOVELL with a statement in the form CLOSE #printer.)
  6. Attempt to replace a read-only file.

Remedy:

(For older versions of BR on Networks, Verify that NOVELL or IBMNET statement is correct.)

  1. Correct the file or path
  2. Unprotect the file you wish to access.
  3. Use a valid file name.
  4. Make sure the user has permission to access the spool path directory. On Unix / Linux, check to see that the Unix or Linux unmask value is correct.
  5. Make sure the user has permission to access the WORKPATH directory.
  6. Remove the Read-Only attribute from the file and retry the replace command. Note that many SourceSafe type programs mark checked in files as Read-Only and you should check them out, rather than manually removing the Read-Only attribute.
  7. Check for any *.bak files, and either remove them or flag them as NOT being read-only.

4206

Summary:

Operating System Error 6. Invalid file descriptor

Cause:

This error would normally occur in Business Rules! only if memory has been corrupted.

Remedy:

Try reloading from source. If this doesn't work, contact your dealer or BRC for assistance

4207

Summary:

DEPRECATED ERROR, as of 4.30: Operating System Error 7

Cause:

  1. Business Rules is attempting to end a shell call, but cannot read the memory swap file.
  2. Operating System Error 7 (memory block destroyed)
  3. Damaged memory block

Remedy:

  1. This problem might occur when a non-Business Rules program utilizing EMS or XMS memory is ill behaved regarding its memory usage. Reboot the system, then try adding EMS-OFF and / or XMS OFF and re-executing the shell call.
  2. Operating system error 7 would normally occur only if memory has been corrupted. Exit from your system, then reload your program and run it again. If the problem recurs, contact your dealer or ADS

4208

Summary:

DEPRECATED ERROR, as of 4.30: Operating System Error 8

Cause:

Insufficient memory to execute shell call. Some possibilities:

  1. The BR command's -M option at start-up was either not specified or not sufficient.
  2. The +integer value specified on the SYSTEM command and / or BRCONFIG.SYS MEMORY specifications was not sufficient to execute the shell call

Remedy:

  1. Exit and restart Business Rules. Being certain to specify enough reserve memory with the -M parameter so that BR can make the operating system call. If you are not already doing so consider using the BR memory swapping facility to ensure that there is enough memory to execute the desired program.Change the +integer specification to a higher number or set it to zero (causes BR to free up all possible memory). Check to make sure that memory swapping is enabled ( MEMORY must exist in BRCONFIG.SYS)

4209

7828

Summary:

SORT specs out of order

Cause:

SORT specifications are out of order or there may be two or more FILE specifications in the same sort control group.

Remedy:

In the program that creates the sort control file, delete the extra FILE specification and/or reorganize the SORT specifications in the following order: ! (for a comment), FILE, ALTS, SUM, RECORD and MASK. MASK must always be last

7829

Summary:

Invalid RECORD type

Cause:

The combined amount of the RECORD specification starting position and its length is greater than the record length.

Remedy:

Run PRESORT and correct the RECORD specification position or length so that the field does not extend beyond the end of the record.

7830

Summary:

Invalid limits in RECORD

Cause:

Lower limit is greater than the upper limit in a sort RECORD specification. RECORD 0,11,1,C,"a","Z" is invalid because "a" has an ASCII value of 97 and "Z" is 90. Uppercase letters come before lowercase letters in ASCII.

Remedy:

Run PRESORT and change the limits so that they are ordered according to the current ASCII collating sequence

7831

Summary:

The window is too small for input.

Remedy:

Increase the size of the defined screen window or reduce the INPUT/PRINT length.

Memory related errors

9000

Summary:

Out of memory

Cause:

Critical out of memory error. The program is in danger of being corrupted or lost.

Remedy:

Before attempting any other actions, save your program with the LIST command (Example: LIST >filename.BRS), then reload it from source (LOAD filename SO) and save it with the SAVE command. Exit and re-enter Business Rules before continuing.

To prevent the error from occurring again, reduce the size of the arrays, the program or both.

9001

Summary:

WorkStack is full

There are two main types of user data memory used by Business Rules, 1) program variable storage and 2) temporary working data. The work stack holds the temporary data during program statement execution. Similar to the RPN stack, if data is place on the stack, perhaps by issuing a function call with parameters passed by value, and other functions are then called the stack can become full.


Cause:

There are several possible causes for this error:

  • The statement may be too complex.
  • The string concatenated may be too large.
  • There may be too many nested functions.

Remedy:

Break the statements and expressions into smaller, less complex pieces that contain fewer nested functions. You can also increase the WorkStack setting in the BRConfig.sys file. Or add a line to BRConfig.sys that says:

WorkStack 1000000 

See also System Limits.

9002

Summary:

RPN stacks full

Cause:

The RPN stacks is full, too many concatenations or variable references have been made; there are to many nested functions.

Remedy:

Break the expressions and statements into smaller, less complex pieces. Reduce the number of variables and nested functions. Increase the size of RPN stack in the BRConfig.sys file but remember that RPN stack space comes from user memory.

Use Status Stacks and find the repeating pattern. It may be looping between two routines both calling the other over and over.

9003

Summary:

Flow stack full

Cause:

  1. Too many concatenations or variable references have been made; there are too many nested functions. Probably, somewhere you got a gosub without a return or something similar
  2. A recursive gosub (i.e. a gosub that calls itself)

Remedy:

  1. Break the statements and expressions into smaller, less complex pieces. Reduce the number of variables, nested functions, and gosub calls. You can also increase the RPNStack setting in the BRConfig.sys file, but remember that RPN stack space comes from user memory.
  2. Remove the call to the gosub from within the gosub

9004

Summary:

FOR/NEXT stack full

Cause:

The FOR/NEXT stack is full.

Remedy:

Reduce the number of FOR/NEXT variables used in the program or increase the size of the FORSTACK setting in the BRCONFIG.SYS file (keep in mind that FOR/NEXT stack space comes from user memory).

9005

Summary:

RPN stack empty

Cause:

The RPN stack is empty. No variables are active in current memory.

Remedy:

Save the program in source and reload it from source. If this error persists, call your dealer or BRC for help.

9006

Summary:

Too many nested structures

Cause:

Too many nested IF, FOR/NEXT, and DO LOOP structures.

Remedy:

Reduce the total number of nested IF, FOR / NEXT, and DO / LOOP structures to 80 or less.

9100

Summary:

Compiler error

Cause:

An invalid variable type occurs for the operation being performed.

Remedy:

9111

Summary:

Save aborted

Cause:

Save or Replace aborted. The program was corrupted and the attempted SAVE operation was not completed.

Remedy:

Neither the output file nor the program on disk will be useable. To recover, immediately execute LIST > Workfile command and then reload from source. Otherwise, your program on disk and in memory may be lost.

9112

Summary:

REPLACE aborted

Cause:

REPLACE aborted. The program was corrupted and the attempted REPLACE operation was not completed.

Remedy:

Neither the output file nor the program on disk will be useable. To recover, immediately execute LIST > Workfile command and then reload from source. Otherwise, your program on disk and in memory may be lost.
