Symptom:

Executing AXCUS01 job from CA Datacom/AD 14.0 INSTJCL library I am getting the following JCL error:

 

42 ++LNKSTP  EXEC PGM=IEWL,COND=(5,LT,ASMSTP),REGION=2M,
43 ++              PARM='LIST,LET,XREF,MAP,NCAL'

...
with error:
....
42 IEFC621I EXPECTED CONTINUATION NOT RECEIVED
43 IEFC605I UNIDENTIFIED OPERATION FIELD ....

Environment:

CA Datacom/AD 14.0, z/OS - AXCUS01 installation Job.

Cause: 

JCL error; line 43 is not recognized so continuation character in line 42 causing the problem.

Resolution:

Problem is corrected by removing one space in line 43 so the PARM string is aligned with the PGM string from line 42. 

Additional Information:

See IBM knowledge center for more; The system did not find an expected continuation on the next line in a JCL statement. The system found either a comma at the end of the last operand on a line or a nonblank character in column 72, but the next line was not a continuation.
