Some possible reasons might be:

  1. Undefined special characters in the mask. Special characters must be predefined in the JTDT member using the WILDCARD statement. There is only one special character (-) known by ESP as a default masking character. All others must be predefined in JTDT as follows:
        ********************************* Top of Data ***********************    WILDCARD # 0-9 /* Numerics */    WILDCARD $ A-Z /* Alphabetics */    WILDCARD @ @#$ /* Nationals */    WILDCARD + 0-9A-Z /* Alphanumerics */    WILDCARD . ABCDEFG /* Fisrt 7 characters */
        TRACKDEF TSU NOTRACK     TRACKDEF ...    ..................
  2. Wrong sequence for the TRACKDEF statement. The order of these statements are important. The most generic statement should be the last one in the table. For example:
  3. JTDT wasn't reloaded. Make sure you didn't forget to reload the JTDT by issuing the command 'LOADJTDT dsname'.
