Issue:
The client is setting up a new CA Date Simulator job to change the current date in their program. When the client executes the WARPPARM program to issue the set command for three Store clock instructions-STCK commands the batch job fails with message WARP011I:0002: CEEPLPKA         :An offset must consist of 1 to 7 hexadecimal characters.
Environment:
Z/OS
Cause:
The client was not using the correct syntax when when issuing the STCK command for a CEEPLPKA that contains three store clock instructions.
The client had the following syntax
STCK(CEEPLPKA,01EDA5C,STCK(CEEPLPKA,01EDC38,STCK(CEEPLPKA,01EDE68))
Resolution:
The correct syxtax for a CEEPLPKA module that contains three store clock instructions is 

STCK(CEEPLPKA,01FC0CC,CEEPLPKA,01FC2A8,CEEPLPKA,01FC2AC)


STCK(program1, offset1; program2, offset2.) 

The STCK parameter is used to specify which Store Clock instructions are to be warped. 

Specify any number of program/offset pairs, where a program name can be 1 to 8 characters long and end with an asterisk (*), and the offset can consist of 1 to 7 hexadecimal characters (directed mode) or an asterisk (automatic mode).
