CLIST is the task code being executed, so the syntax should look like: 

R nn, 99task-code parameters

 

nn

Specifies a reply number.

The reply number is shown in the system REPLY WITH REQUEST message displayed at the console. The REPLY WITH REQUEST message has the following format:

nn REPLY WITH REQUEST TO IDMS-DC Vnnnn

You can omit leading zeros from the number displayed in the system REPLY WITH REQUEST message.

 

99

Specifies that a task code follows a response to a prompt.

task-code Specifies the task code of a task defined on the system generation TASK statement.

task-parameters Specifies a command or any input parameters used by the task.

 

For example:

R 28, 99 CLIST DISCLIST 

where DISCLIST is the clist name.
