The most likely cause of these errors is that you are using an old copy the CA-Telon supplied import proc (TLNUMDEF), or old copies of one or more customizable macros — TLNIIS, TELONIIS or PGMNAMES. In release 2.4 (genlevels 9704 through 9906), much of the Generator set-up processing was streamlined, resulting in changes to both the CA-Telon Generator preprocessor (ADPCCARD, in the CONTROL step) and the Generator macros. These changes affect both Generator processing and Import, which goes through a “reverse-gen” step using the Generator. For this reason, it is essential that you always re-customize the JCL/procs and customizable macros supplied with each genlevel. To determine if TLNUMDEF is causing the problem, check to see there is a CONTROL step (PGM=ADPCCARD) immediately before the GEN step. If you don’t have a CONTROL step, then you are probably using an earlier version of the Import proc and will need to customize and use the version contained in the new #pdsqual.INSTALL PDS. T
