M204.0920  Value or name list syntax error

The %variable assignment specification for a Host Language Interface call, or the field name list for an IFPUT call, is incorrect. The possible errors are:

  • A DATA specification is found with a name list.
  • The data area of a DATA specification is in a form other than fieldname=value for field assignment, or %variable=value for %variable assignment.
  • A field name or %variable is undefined.
  • A value in the data area in a LIST specification is not enclosed in quotation marks, or a group of values is in a form other than 'value1' 'value2', et cetera.

The call returns a code of 4.

Response: Consult the function's description page to correct the specification, checking all %variable and field names for correct spelling, and retry.
