M204.1927  The initial 'by' value or direction parameter must be positive

In SOUL, on entry to a For loop, the By value must be positive. The body of the For loop may then change it to a positive or negative value.

Note: The By value can never be set to zero.

In IFAM, the initial IFFTCH call must specify a positive value for the direction parameter.

Response: For SOUL, correct the By value. For IFAM, correct the direction parameter.
