M204.0187 Point$ not allowed in groups
A Point$ clause is found in a Find statement or in the selection specification of an IFFIND function. Because a group of files is opened and not a single file, Point$ is illegal. Internal record numbers apply only to single files. In SOUL, compilation continues but the request is not executed. IFFIND returns a return code of 4.
Response: Retry the SOUL request with a single file opened or the single file as the default file, or add an IN file clause to the Find statement. Change the host language program to open a single file rather than a group.
