Lloyd,

I checked with the developer and you only need to add the
range to the SYNTAX clause (4 places). You don't need it in the
SEQUENCE clause too.

prtInputIndex does have a range on the SYNTAX, as do most of the
other Indexes and they are all (1..65535).

The range for prtInputIndex is (1..65535), so it does use the sign bit
of a 16-bit integer. So presumably all the other 4 indexes should
have the same range added in their SYNTAX clauses:

prtOutputIndex, PrtChannelIndex, prtInterpreterIndex and prtAlertIndex.
