[CLOSED] (FOC015) THE TEST VALUE IS LONGER THAN THE FIELD FORMAT LENGTH
I am getting error for the below code:

-SET &CREATE_AM_ING= IF 'REPOSTORY^CREATED DATE' LIKE '%SELLING CODES CREATED DATE% AND 1 NE '1' THEN '' ELSE '-*';

ERROR MESSAGE:
(FOC015) THE TEST VALUE IS LONGER THAN THE FIELD FORMAT LENGTH

Thanks in advance

Your LIKE test string is missing ending quote.

'%SELLING CODES CREATED DATE%

Also, why a circumflex accent
^

'REPOSTORY^CREATED DATE'

It based on Paramter value changed and '^' used to separate values.

Ok, but you know that your condition could never be true due to that character in the case where the parameter generates the below condition
IF 'SELLING CODES^CREATED DATE' LIKE '%SELLING CODES CREATED DATE%'


Have you resolved the error issue by adding the missing quote ?
