M204.0270  At column already used

The starting column for a SCREEN or MENU item is already occupied by an earlier item on the same line. An extra column must be allowed to the left of the new item for the attribute byte required by the 3270 hardware.

This message is often caused by the omission of a TO or LEN clause from the previous item on the line. If no TO or LEN is specified for an INPUT item or a variable PROMPT, the item extends to the end of the display line.

Response: Correct the column overlap, and retry.
