This is the error whilst attmpting to run a drill down report. The &AL is the value of one of the parameters passed to the drill report.
Webfocus 5.2.
Does anyone have an idea what is causing this?

This is just a hunch, but you cannot set a variable equal to a field format..for example in a define, you can't say

NEWFIELD/A9 = SUBSTR(9,INFIELD,1,9,9,&FMT);

In that case the variable &FMT is supposed to be a field format and it is not allowed to be a variable.

My hunch in your case is because you are using two letters that can be a format field (A=alpha and L is for leading zeros) that it is possible you are having troubles because it thinks that amper variable you have passed is a field format instead of a text or numeric field. Why don't you try renaming the variable something else and use three different letters and see if it will work

That error is somtimes caused by some other syntax error that confuses WebFOCUS. Can you post your code?

I've seen this error when you try to drill down on a field that has single quotes in it or when you try to pass a value to the drill down with single quotes in it.

According to the FOCUS manual all -SET commands must be terminated with a semi-colon. You also have what appears to be an extra double quote in the heading line of your report.

The extra double quote is in the NODATA section at the bottom of the FOCEXEC.
