SPP4002 Error at line <line>, column <column>:<type> variable <name> does not conform to type CHAR(8)
C, COBOL, PL/I
Variable used in the CONNECT statement does not conform to character(8) definition. Variables in the CONNECT statement (userid, password) must be of type character(8).
Insure the proper variable and/or definition was used. If more than eight characters are required, the use of the LOGON statement may want to be considered.
