Does anyone have seen this message on a JOB? By the way I've placed a parameter on a DD card as "Number 10 parameter was invalid: DEVTYPE". And therefore came the subject posted... Any ideas?
Thanks!

Hello,

Please post your actual jcl, clist, and any diagnostic information provided by the system. Please use copy/paste rather than typing.

Once we see what you have, we may be able to offer suggestions.

K Scherrer,;
I guess I've just figured it out as follows:
"
select fewer variables for the report. You
cannot exceed 133 in length.
You selected variables that
had a length of at least 137 .
READY
END
"
In fact at the end of parameter I was writing a non recognizable one, so at this point I've received this abbend.
After all that was just a mistake sintax on it.
Tkss a lot for while!
