Error Message :
U00020528 Runtime error in object 'SCRI.PRB00122111.ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT' line '00005': 8th parameter wrong ('MYDUMMYWORKFLOW')

When using the syntax for the script function ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT as documented in the Automation Engine (AE) documentation, the above error is displayed and the script function fails.

According to the documentation the syntax for the parameter "ALIAS" should be passed after the 8th comma. However, in reality it should be after the 7th comma.

Invalid Syntax, with one comma too many in the documentation, after [Start time | Period object]:
