When trying to execute the CA Datacom utility DQLIBRMT (Data Query Batch Facility), what caused these errors?
** SIGNON ERROR. CHECK FORMAT
** CRITICAL ERROR, RUN TERMINATED **
The above errors will result if the SIGN/ON card is not in the correct format syntax.
Here is an example of a valid SIGN/ON card:
//SYSIN DD *
SIGN/ON DATACOM-INSTALL PASSWORD NEWUSER
Any valid Userid and Password can be used.
The example shows Userid DATACOM-INSTALL and Password NEWUSER.
The syntax rules are:
SIGN/ON Userid PASSWORD Password
- SIGN/ON card must start in column 1.
- There should be only one space between strings.
- It should start with SIGN/ON and not SIGNON or SIGN-ON.
If the above rules are not followed then the Error message will be produced.
See CA Dataquery for CA Datacom Administration Guide - Chapter 16. Managing Your Query Library Table - SIGN/ON Control Statement
