Hello I want to convert AFP files to PDF using VPSPDF utility, I have the following JCL, but the JCL is erroring out with return code of 8, says that PARMFILE has a problem.
Code:
//STEP020  EXEC PGM=VPSPDF                               
//OUTFILE  DD DSN=DSN1,
//            SPACE=(CYL,(6,15),RLSE),                     
//            DCB=(BLKSIZE=23440,RECFM=U),                 
//            DISP=(,CATLG,DELETE)                         
//PDFSPLIT DD DUMMY                                                                   
//INFILE   DD DSN=INDS1,DISP=OLD               
//PARMFILE DD *                                           
 PDFRTAB=VPSSPTB2,                                         
 AFPRTAB=VPSSRTAB,                                         
 FORMDEF=TN1BCL,                                           
 PAGEDEF=TN1BCL,                                           
 SNAPHOLD=N,                                               
 TRACE=(Y,40),                                             
 TRC=Y,

Hello,

What problem does it say about the PARMFILE?

It may help if you post the diagnostic info from the step.

I really don't understand posts like this. deybumba_2k, YOUR site is licensed to use the product. This means YOUR site has access to all the product documentation, which somewhere includes a complete list of the possible keywords to use in the PARMFILE. If you, personally, don't have the documentation -- so what? GO FIND IT!

You are basically hoping that (1) someone who responds on this forum is using the same software, and (2) that person is willing to actually read the manuals that you are unwilling to read. Since forum responses are voluntary and on our schedule, it would be much, much, much faster for you to find the documentation at your own site and read it rather than waiting for responses here, deybumba_2k.

Hello grandmaster and welcome to the forum,

For someone to be able to help, you need to post your jcl and control statements as well as the diagnostic info generated by the failed run.

Rather than posting a reply to a topic that has been inactive for years, you should start a new topic for your post.

Posting this way only causes confusion.
