M204.0321 Invalid cross-reference
A SOUL statement references a list associated with a different file or group than is being accessed. An example of this might be:
JOHN: IN THISFILE FIND ALL RECORDS FOR WHICH NAME = JOHNNY APPL: PLACE RECORDS IN JOHN ON LIST APPLES CRITIC: IN THATFILE FIND ALL RECORDS FOR WHICH REMARKS = SNIDE ORAN: PLACE RECORDS IN CRITIC ON LIST ORANGES THISF: IN THISFILE FIND ALL RECORDS RID: REMOVE ALL RECORDS IN THISF FROM LIST ORANGES
The last statement receives the error message because
LIST ORANGES is associated with
THATFILE. The compilation continues, but the request is not executed.
Response: Change the statement to reference a list associated with the same file or group accessed and retry.
