I am running the following code in 8207.28.07:


I then proceed to type in text in the prompt text box:

I then obtain the following error page:


Here is the view source of the error page:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">

<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">


<script id="ibi-XMLENFORCE" type="application/xml">


<Status passed='false' />


<Variable name='IBIF_Fex' value='anything' text='The Value of this Variable is Invalid! ' title='IBIF_Fex' />







The Value of this Variable is Invalid!  'IBIF_Fex' </body>



So, for some reason, WebFOCUS 8207 seems to be working hard, behind the scenes to validate the variable.

This code was written in ran ok in 7.7. The code was then migrated to 8007, and then 8105M, were it also ran ok in each release.

Any ideas at all on how to relax WebFOCUSs scrutiny

I realize in the example I am showing, a -DEFAULT would help to fix, however, in my actual case adding -DEFAULTs or renaming the variable would not be practical, for many reasons, only one of which this is inherited legacy code.
