Have an ispf panel running under z/vm and wanted to validate a user entered date. Found some ISPF panel code to perform partial validation but when i added the STDDATE verify i failed with the following msg
error msg -> VERIFICATION "TYPE" UNRECOGNIZED.
Error message ID: ISPP180, look up this error and find 'The VER (verify) statement keyword is invalid' and STDDATE is not in the list of valid keywords.. but... i do find STDATE in the zos ISPF reference summary and was wondering if this is related to z/vm (maybe the version of ispf service running in zvm??). Any thoughts and comments are appreciated. I certainly can audit the date in the REXX EXEC code which contains the business rules and db2 calls but was hoping to avoid that by using an ISPF panel VER function. Thanks!! Bob B. in Tampa, FL
