This form specification has a SCREEN section but no TABLES or ATTRIBUTES sections. Complete the form specification.
Informix Error Code -2977 Table table1 cannot be a master of table table2 because they do not join.
The two tables that are named in a MASTER OF instruction must be joined. A join between tables is expressed by naming columns from both tables in one statement in the ATTRIBUTES section. Check the spelling of the table names here, and review the attribute statements.
Informix Error Code -2978 The column column1 and the column column2 cannot be joined columns because their types or lengths are different.
The columns in a join must contain data from the same domain. The fact that these columns have different types or (if they are character columns) different lengths indicates that their contents are not from the same domain. Check the spelling of the column names to make sure that you named the correct columns. Review the design of the database, and make sure that these tables are meant to be joined on these columns.
Informix Error Code -2984 The table identifier table is defined more than once.
Correct the statements in the TABLES section so that each table is defined just once. Possibly you have defined an alias that is the same as a real table name.
Informix Error Code -2985 The table identifiers name1 and name2 represent the same table.
In the TABLES section, these two names are defined in such a way that they refer to the same database table. One or both of them is a table alias. Change the statements so that each name stands for just one table and each table has just one name.
Informix Error Code -2986 The form specification has exceeded the maximum of limit master/detail pairs.
A restriction exists on the number of master-detail pairs that can be supported in one form. You must find a way to simplify the form.
