Issue/Introduction

After applying CA Recommended Service (CARS) for z/OS maintenance level 1910  to CA JCLCHeck r12.0, users are now reporting they are getting message CAY6037W when coding a hyphen '-' after a parameter with no space.   CA JCLCHECK appears to be treating the hyphen like a plus sign '+' which is used to continue a command and the value within the command.  This error is not flagged if a hyphen is coded after a right parentheses ')' with no space.  



Environment

Release : 12.0

Component : CA JCLCheck workload Automation

Resolution

APAR SO10616 resolves this problem

Additional Information

IBM manual z/OS DFSMS Access Method Services Commands  at https://www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSLTBW_2.2.0/com.ibm.zos.v2r2.idai200/continu.htm  confirms it is perfectly acceptable to have no  space between the parameter and the hyphen
