Error description

  • A user is editing some z/OS Job Control and he gets 'Too many
    parameters' messages for some statements although the JCL
    actually runs without problem on z/OS.
    
    Here is a sample of one situation:
    
    000300 //STEPA   EXEC PROCA,
    000301 //             MSGDSN=&DSN11,
    000302 //             INDSP=(OLD,KEEP,KEEP)
    000302 Too many parameters.
    000303 // ENDIF
    000303 Expected ')' not found.
    000304 //
    *
    The first KEEP in line 302 and all of line 303 are  highlighted
    in red.
    The corresponding messages are unnumbered.
    *
    Here is another example:
    000400 //STEPB    EXEC PROCB,
    000401 //             MSGDSN=&DSNB,
    000402 //             INDSPB=(OLD,KEEP,KEEP)
    000402 Too many parameters.
    000403 //STEPC    EXEC PGM=PROGC,
    000403 Expected parameter continuation not found.
    000404 //         PARM='FILENAME.OUTFL1 ,FB,00100,365'
    000404 Incorrect JCL operation field.
    The first KEEP in line 402, all of line 403 and only
    PARM='FILENAME.OUTFL1 in line 404 are highlighted in red.
    
    The corresponding messages are unnumbered.
    *
