Hi,

PROC 0 ZCMD()
CONTROL NOLIST NOPROMPT MSG
ALTLIB ACTIVATE APPLICATION(EXEC) +
DATASET('a.b.c')
ALTLIB ACTIVATE APPLICATION(CLIST) +
DATASET('a.b.c')
ISPEXEC LIBDEF ISPPLIB DATASET +
ID('a.b.d')
ISPEXEC SELECT PANEL(AST) OPT(&ZCMD) NEWAPPL(WER) +
PASSLIB SCRNAME(TOOL)
ALTLIB DEACTIVATE APPLICATION(CLIST)
ISPEXEC LIBDEF ISPPLIB
EXIT

When I execute this prog. I'm getting a error

: F &:PROC 0 ZCMD()::CONTROL NOLIST NOPROMPT MSG:sALTLIB ACTIVATE APP
THIS STATEMENT HAS AN INVALID SYMBOLIC VARIABLE

Could someone tell me how to solve this.

Regards,
jramuk

How as the file created? It looks like there are additional characters in the file. Perhaps change all p'^' to ' '.

Try editing and issue HEX ON. Is there anything besides '40'x where you expect blanks to be?

Pedro,

All blanks are only '40' and no other junk value is present. I tried both options, but in vain.

I pasted your code into a blank pds member and ran it with no problems apart from the obvious - I don't have the datasets.

Can you post the screen dump of the error message as what you posted looks very odd?
