Progress error 11687

Posted by MarkHeppenstall on 05-Mar-2014 06:25

Anyone any idea of the possible cause of the following Appserver message:-

Error 1 converting LONGCHAR variable to cpinternal for comparison. (11687)

The KB doesn't have anything useful and the Progress error number help (using v11.2) doesn't elaborate either.

Hi Mark,
There are several places in the source code that makes up Progress where that error can be thrown and all of them relate to converting a longchar variable to a character variable that has the same codepage as the -cpinternal startup parameter.  Unfortunately none of them explicitly return "Error 1" so I cannot tell which applies to your situation.
Please open a support case with Technical Support so we can look into this in more depth.

Thanks Brian,

If this is the most likely cause then I think I have tracked down a scenario when a comparison between a longchar and a character could have occurred.

I suspect in the instances that the error was reported the data passed in the longchar was 'too big' to fit into a character and hence the comparison failed.

I have modified the code and will monitor.
