Strange eval problem - Two variables updated with one EVAL statement - RPG IV

I have a called program which sets two variables with one eval statement.  The compile looks correct.  I have a screen cast which shows the program in debug (values before and after the execution of the statement).  Note the same problem occurs when I type 'Eval ....' on the command line in debug.  Both variables are set to the value.  Sound like a buffer or storage location error, but I don't know where or what to check.   I've attached a compiled listing of the programs and the screencast.  

Thanks you for your help!

We probably need to see how those are defined. All we can see here is how this program references them.

What does the CALL look like that invokes this program? How are the variables defined back in the calling program? That's where the actual memory is defined. This program references them as being distinct entities, but they are PARMs after all. Reference here may be misleading.

Maybe.

Hi Tom,

I will get all the information together and repost it when I get back to my computer.  It will probably be late tonight.  

Thank you .... more soon.

Hi Tom,

You were right.  I looked at the calls a number of times, but missed the error until I went back this time.  Sorry to have wasted your time.  (too many hours in front of the screen)  Thank you.

No problem. It's never a waste of time if it brings an answer closer.
