    There is a new documentation update to the ADS Reference Guide on the definition of Date-Time fields. Currently the manual indicates the 8-byte binary fields should be defined as PIC 9(16) COMP. This works fine for calling the functions but will cause DC171039 errors if the field is placed in the map. They should instead be defined as PIC 9(18) COMP. See RI77779 for full details.
