From CA TPX Release 5.2 onwards it is possible to customize the ACT via TPXBATCH. When trying to update variable ACTLABEL with 'Session Description' containing blanks the job fails with messages:

Close Parenthesis Required to End Parameter List


When the value in ACTLABEL is closed into apostrophes the TPXBATCH Job runs fine:

 UPDATE ACTAPPL (<acttable> <applid>
 (ACTLABEL ('text containing several words')))

Additional Information:

The Syntax diagram for UPDATE ACTAPPL looks like:

 UPDATE ACTAPPL (<acttable> <applid>
 (ACTLABEL (text containing several words)))
