I receive a runtime error "Receiver too small to hold value". What does this mean?

Product: WebSmart ILE Type: Frequently Asked Question

When you run your WebSmart ILE or Clover program after generating and receive a runtime error that reads "Receive too small to hold value" this means that a value is being assigned to a work field that is not large enough to hold it.

For example, trying to store the string "Hello!" in a 3 Alpha field or the number 52,345 in a 4,0 numeric field.

This seems to come up most commonly in programs where the total number of records is being accumulated as they are fetched or a value is being calculated for after each fetch. 

Ensure that all the work fields you have created are large enough to hold the values they are being assigned.

If you are still stuck please contact BCD Tech Support
