    Data element '&v2&' is assigned to field '&v1&'. External length '&v4&'
    was assigned to this field when the segment was saved. This either
    occurred automatically by calculation of the export length of the data
    element or by explicit assignment of a greater export length within
    segment maintenance
    However, field '&v1&' is defined larger in the repository structure,
    namely with '&v3&' character places.

    System Response

    The system issues an error message and will not allow you to continue with this transaction until the error is resolved.

    How to fix this error?

    Using the change times, check whether there are any inconsistent
    changes and change the segment in accordance with your requirements in
    the segment editor and save again.

A warning message will stop your work, however, you can then bypass the warning by pressing the Enter key on your keyboard. That said, it is still good practice to investigate the cause of the warning message and address it. An information message will not stop your work and is truly just for informational purposes.
