I have a REXX statement

INTERPRET "ADDRESS DSNREXX ""EXECSQL FETCH C101 INTO "fthparm""

where fthparm is a Variable.

When executing the statement if length of "fthparm" is going above 250, I'm getting following error..

"IRX0030I Error running CALLSTPR, line 656: Name or string > 250 characters "

I know that REXX literal string has a limitation of 250 chars, but is there any way we can overcome this constraint?

first
I have never seen a reason to use the interpret REXX instruction for such a simple function

second
this kind of error is usually due to programming errors ( missing string delimiters - usually )

a good debugging method for the INTERPRET instruction is to use a ..
SAY with the same pattern to see what the INTERPRET-ED string would look like
