Informix Error Messages and Error Codes From Error 2987 to 2992


Informix Error Code -2987 The form specification has exceeded the maximum of limit screens.
A restriction exists on the number of screen layouts that can be supported in one form. You must find a way to simplify the form.
-2988 FORMBUILD has run out of memory.
The form compiler cannot get enough data memory to process the form specification. You must find a way to simplify the form.

Informix Error Code -2989 The column name is a reference column, but it is not indexed. It is recommended that reference columns be indexed for lookups. Performance will be much improved by creating an index.
You have defined the indicated column as a reference column using the LOOKUP attribute. Whenever the operator enters a value in the field, it will be looked up in this column. Such a lookup operation is quick when an index is present, but no index on the column exists at this time. Without one, a lookup might be extremely slow. Unless the field does not allow operator input (in which case you should remove the asterisk) or the table is very small (a few dozen rows at most), you should create an index for this column before you put the form into use.
Informix Error Code -2990 The columns column1 and column2 are not in the same database table.
All columns that are cited in a single LOOKUP attribute must belong to the same table. Check the spellings of the names, and make sure that they are the columns you intended.

Informix Error Code -2991 Warning: Only the first screen of your multiple-screen form will be displayed under 4GL.
This warning appears when you use the 4GL forms compiler to compile a multipage PERFORM screen. A 4GL program can display only the first page of a multipage form. If the form specification has more than one SCREEN section, it has been purposely divided into multiple pages, and you will have redesign it for 4GL. If it has only a single screen layout, the 4GL forms compiler has split it into two pages because it will not fit on the screen. The form design might not allow for the four screen lines that 4GL reserves.
Informix Error Code -2992 The display label name has already been used.
The forms compiler indicates that name has been defined twice. These names must be defined uniquely in the form specification. Review all uses of the name to see if one of them is incorrect.
