Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 1120 to 1124
Informix Error Code -1120 Message file not found.
The message file that is specified in the HELP FILE clause of the most recent OPTIONS statement does not exist. Find that OPTIONS statement in the program, and review the “help-file” parameter. It must contain the complete filename of the prepared message file. If the file is not in the current directory, it must have a full pathname. Message files are prepared with the mkmessage utility.
For 4GL programs, -1227 replaces this error.
Informix Error Code -1121 Message number not found in message file.
A message number that is given in the HELP clause of an INPUT, PROMPT, or MENU statement cannot be found in the current message file. The most- recently executed OPTIONS HELP FILE statement establishes the message file. Find that statement in the program, and verify that the message file is the one that you intended. Then review the source of that message file, and ensure that it contains definitions for all the message numbers that are used in the program. Recompile the message file with the mkmessage utility, and try the program again.
For 4GL programs, -1228 replaces this error.
Informix Error Code -1122 Incompatible message file.
The message file that is named in the most-recently executed OPTIONS HELP FILE statement was not acceptable. Possibly it has been corrupted in some way. Possibly the OPTIONS statement named the message source file instead of the compiled message file (the output of mkmessage). Possibly the file was compiled with an outdated version of the mkmessage utility. Recompile the message file with the current version of the utility, and review the program source to make sure that it names the correct file.
For 4GL programs, -1229 replaces this error.
Informix Error Code -1123 No help file specified.
This INPUT, PROMPT, or MENU statement contains a HELP help-number clause; however, no message file has been established. The OPTIONS HELP FILE statement establishes the message file, but none has yet been executed. Review the program logic, and modify it to execute an OPTIONS statement with a HELP FILE clause before it is needed.
For 4GL programs, -1343 replaces this error.
Informix Error Code -1124 This field requires an entered value.
The cursor is in a form field that has been designated REQUIRED. You must enter some value before the cursor can move on to another field. However, to enter a null value, type any printable character and then backspace. Alternatively, you can cancel the form entry with the Interrupt key (usually CTRL-C, but see the operating instructions that the program author supplied).
For 4GL programs, -1305 replaces this error.
