SN-000992 *** ALERT NOTE *** PRODUCT: AF

TITLE: Modification of a character column from model SCL may cause corruption

KEYS: DATAFORM DATA FORM MISSING VALUE MODIFY COLUMN MODEL SCL ASSIGN
       CHARACTER

    In a Data Form object within a SAS/AF FRAME entry, modifying a
    character column from model SCL may result in a numeric column
    being set to missing or the first character of a character column
    being blanked out.

    This may occur in the following situation:

     1. You modify any column that has an associated model SCL label
        and press enter.
     2. Model SCL code runs for the modified column and a character
        columns's value is set in model SCL.
     3. You modify another column and press enter.
     4. The value of the column following the character column whose
        value was modified in model SCL may be corrupted.

    No error messages are generated. This problem is corrected in the
    Version 8 production release.
