In April, Q10, Q11, and Q12, were converted to Multi-key. Q10 & Q12 have three secondary keys. Q11 has one.

Two or three weeks back when the Q10 problem first appeared there was also a very similar situation in the Q12.

QPNBR$ Pos 0, length of 6, primary key
QVNBR$ Pos 6, length of 6

99.9% of the vendors in use still use only the 1st five characters. So seeing character six being blank is normal.

QPNBR$ Pos 0, len 6
QLINE$ Pos 6, len 3
QSUB$ Pos 9, len 3
QJOB$ Pos 12, len 4
QITEM$ Pos,16, len 11

The first three fields are the key

The problem in the Q12 was that, sometimes, the QJOB$ and the first two characters of the QITEM$ were blank.

Coincidentally, maybe, in both the Q10 and Q12 the first six characters following the key were getting blanked???
