M204.0999  Number %variable used for variable-name variable

A Fixed or Float %variable or a numeric special screen or menu item (Row, Column, Pfkey, Itemid, or Selection) was used to name another %variable through the colon (:) prefix.

For example, if %salary were a fixed variable, a reference to :%salary produces this message.

Response: If a variable-name variable is intended, redefine the variable as String, or use a different variable that is already a string. Otherwise, remove the initial colon. Retry the request.
