M204.1004  Data inconsistent with EDIT_SPEC

A host language call to IFPUT uses the EDIT specification with an E format. The data area described by the E format does not contain a valid string representation of a number. Processing of the IFPUT call stops at the invalid data and the call returns a code of 4.

Response: See Using EDIT format codes for an updating call for the correct value format for E format strings. Make sure the lengths in the E format item and preceding items in the EDIT specification correspond to the values in the data area. Retry the call.
