Issue

After running the job to populate the PSP libraries for a new PTF the receive new PSP Tables option(5;2;4;1) may list the PTF as containing a syntax error and in HELD status.

For example

The following Product Changes have one or more syntax errors and    

will be in a HELD status if saved in the new Master Inventory Table.

                                                                    

  Text Mbr   Section in error                                       

  --------   -----------------------------------------------------  

  @CIC6795   LIBRARIES/MEMBERS REPLACED            

 

Cause:             

The TEXT section of the PTF contains a bad character that is causing the error during the PSP Table refresh.

For example, the members listed under the LIBRARIES/MEMBERS REPLACED section contain a character other than $.

In this example, the second member has a £ character instead of a $.

LIBRARIES/MEMBERS REPLACED:  

   sharedprefix.MICS.DOC.TEXT 

    @FE$COPR @FE£SORC @FE$TTL 

 

Resolution:

Most likely, a transmission error or translation error occurred during uploading of the PTF from the PC to the Mainframe.   Re-download the PTF from support.ca.com and re-upload to the mainframe.   Then rerun the job to refresh the PSP libraries again followed by a PSP table refresh (5;2;4;1).   

You can also ensure that the member in the sp.PSP.PC.TEXT contains the EBCDIC hex for '$' '5B'x in the section noted above under LIBRARIES/MEMBERS REPLACED
