Remote Begin/Remote end
So I have just gotten WebFocus Developer Studio 5.2.3 installed, I am a noob to Webfocus but not mainframe focus. I am connecting to a remote EDAserve. So I am using a -Remote Begin and -Remote to connect to a focus table. The prolem is then I also have to use a ex @TableName to tell it which table to allocate. Webfocus does not like this line, it gives an "error parsing master file p0aif(foc303) control line not recognized when using report painter and will not save or run. I then have to comment the line out opeing as text and then can make changes using report painter. Does anyone have any ideas or had a smiliar problem? I am a nooby so go easy on me please. Here is a simple sample I am trying to run. If I didn't provide enough information just let me know.

-REMOTE BEGIN
EX @RPM
TABLE FILE P0AIF
PRINT ACCTRMGR1ID
BY
ACCOUNTKEY

WHERE RECORDLIMIT EQ 10
ON TABLE SET PAGE-NUM OFF
ON TABLE NOTOTAL
ON TABLE SET ONLINE-FMT HTML
ON TABLE SET HTMLCSS ON
ON TABLE SET STYLE *
UNITS=IN,
PAGESIZE='SCREEN',
LEFTMARGIN=0.000000,
RIGHTMARGIN=0.000000,
TOPMARGIN=0.000000,
BOTTOMMARGIN=0.000000,
SQUEEZE=ON,
ORIENTATION=PORTRAIT,
$
TYPE=REPORT,
GRID=OFF,
FONT='TIMES NEW ROMAN',
SIZE=10,
COLOR='BLACK',
BACKCOLOR='NONE',
STYLE=NORMAL,
$
ENDSTYLE
END
-REMOTE END

Thanks!
