Select 'Case' in free format

Select 'Case' in free format

(OP)
Hi,
I'm trying to play with free format select statement. I can't find out what I'm missing here:
/Free               
 Select Case Zter ;
==>         aaaa
5507 30 a      001039  A semi-colon is not specified at the end of a free-form        specification.  
 When '8' ;      
  Then ;        
  Zterm='0045' ;
  Zbd1t='45' ;  
.
.
   EndSl ;
/End-free                                       

RE: Select 'Case' in free format

The syntax is wrong for RPG. Try something like:

   /free

      Select;
      When Zter = 8;
         Zterm = '0045';
         Zbd1t = '45';
      When ...
         ...
         ...
      Other;
         ...
      EndSL;

   /end-free
