M204.1243  Invalid delimiter following field name

An invalid delimiter such as) follows a field in the DEFINE command. Valid delimiters are:

  • A comma, to indicate another field name follows. For example, in the command DEFINE AGE, NAME, both AGE and NAME are fields with default attributes.
  • A left parenthesis ( ( ), to indicate that attributes are being assigned. An example is DEFINE AGE (KEY, RANGE). A blank is not a delimiter, since Model 204 field names may contain blanks (for example, DEFINE CUST ID defines one field, not two).

Response: Correct the command syntax, and retry.
