Issue:

Trying to use the CA Librarian Group Processing Option (GPO) with -EDIT command just like the sample shown on page 31 of CA Librarian User Guide manual.  Getting the following error:

-SEL NAME=/HSAM,LANG=JCL                                 
*** ERROR ***          INVALID GPO SYNTAX NEAR POSITION   6  

Resolution:

The example in the Librarian User Guide is incorrect. There should be an ending slash in the NAME field.

Example from the manual:

-OPT GPO
-SEL NAME=/PAY,(LANG=COB)
-EDIT /3350-/3380-/

Should be coded as follows:

-OPT GPO 
-SEL NAME=/PAY/,(LANG=COB) 
-EDIT /3350-/3380-/

Additional Information:

For more information on how to code the -SEL NAME field see  Chapter 6: Group Processing Option in the CA Librarian System Services Reference Guide.
