Try the following (I'm assuming it is Function Category here)

From SLM menu, go to option 21 for Category and then 1 for Function Category.
Find your category in the list and press F6 and enter along to OPR field here. Press F4. If your user isn't listed here you haven't added correctly in $OPR and need to go into $OPR.

Enter your COMP and Username.
Press Enter until you reach the Function Category field.
Press F4.
You may get "Category not defined" message when you go in - ignore it.
Press F5.
Enter your new category name and enter level 9.

Now try running your function.

Only other thing I can think is that you have used some kind of reserved word for the category name and it is confusing SL in some way.

Your user doesn't have access to the category.

You can set this up for your operator using $OPR and adding to File or Function category towards the bottom of the screen.

ISO8601 has information on week numbers that states something along the lines of:

"A week begins with a Monday, and the first week of a year is the one which includes the first Thursday"!!!!

i.e. find the first Thursday in January and that is week 1. Note that this can mean that if 1st Jan is a Thursday, week1 begins on 29th December the previous year! It can also start as late as 4th Jan.

I had to handle this, but also some strange week numbers from Middle East (where everything seems to be run off the new moon rising), so ended up storing the date along with a week number in a file for lookup.

I'm a Superlayer person and the way I'd do it in SL is to declare my fields as follows


That should work in the way you suggest (although I think you may need to press F3 twice to get back to OK?)

In Native (I think - someone is sure to correct me if I have made a mistake!)
Declare your fields in the order

LS01 has start fid# 01 and end fld# 06
LS02 has start fid# 02 and end fid# 05 (LS is declared as paging screen)
