Question: 

I am attempting to create new CA Ideal user with a user name of 1ABC but I am getting error message:

IDADCMDP02E - Command invalid or incomplete starting at "1ABC"

Can a CA Ideal user name start with a number?

 

Answer: 

The CA Ideal user person name which is specified in the CREATE USER command, can be up to 15 characters and any combination of letters, numbers and national characters but it cannot start with a number. However, the 3 character IDEAL User ID can start with a number and must be specified on the user definition panel.
