pset failure
Detailed Description and Symptoms
If a jobplan starts a job with ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT(...,PASS_VALUES) the variable which is turnover with :PSET is only available when the parent jobplan is NOT deactivated.

The following opportunities make sure that the variable will be available for the child jobs.

*) Set the option "automatically deactivate when finished" -> "Time delay" to 1 day in the register card attribute.

*) deactivate the option "Generate at runtime" in the called job.
*) use the command :wait xx after calling the job with ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT(...,PASS_VALUES).

There is an own table to handle this situation in Version 9.00A. In this version the failure will not occur.
Another possibility is to use a VARA object and hand over the variable on this way.
