InvReq, EIBRESP=16, filed length not -1

InvReq, EIBRESP=16, filed length not -1

I receive an AEIP InvReq EIBRESP=16 abend when attempting to redisplay a map. The entered field values persists, and a new error message is on the map in WS. Other flags, etc get set correctly from code. The entered field length changes from x'0009' to x'FFFF' and I am trying to change it to -1 to position the cursor for re-entry at the 1st position of the field. I am sending the map with Cursor and Dataonly. I'm using Enter Traceid (nnn) to try to trap the offending code. I'm using CEDF. What's a 16 and what is best practice for positioning cursor? The app works with lots of other move -1 to length. What kind of error in the map could this be? Maryes

RE: InvReq, EIBRESP=16, filed length not -1

x'FFFF' is -1 stored in 2's complement format.  Is it not positioning the cursor to that field?

If not, is it possible that the length of some other field on the map (that occurs before this field) is also set to -1?

Code what you mean,

But by all means post your code!
