Error Message :

The field label of MVS Jobs > ZOS tab under the Runtime options with the name "Program Name" is misleading.

In the documentation, the field description is described as the "Programmers Name" and not "Program Name".  However, without knowing this, it is potentially possible that job creators might enter an invalid value based on the misleading name.

The field itself does not necessarily impact production runs, however an invalid entry within it could cause confusion.

Ensure that job developers are aware that the field's content should contain the "Programmers Name" as described in the documentation.
