M204.0037  Invalid syntax

There is a syntax error in a SOUL statement (VARIABLES ARE, %variable IS, or FOR %variable) or a PROCEDURE command.

For %variable declarations (VARIABLES ARE, %variable IS), the possible errors are:

  • A LEN, DP, or ARRAY clause appears more than once.
  • More than one type (STRING, FLOAT, FIXED) appears.

For an index loop (FOR %variable), the statement contains a keyword other than FROM, TO, or BY, or there is text following the statement (for example, a comment) on the same line.

For the PROCEDURE command, the ALIAS or PCLASS parameter appears more than once.

Response: Correct the error and recompile the request or reissue the command.
