    Please check the JCL text link is showing 3.11 version, instead of 3.12 version.

      Hi, Jerry. We have checked the cd/bmc/esd/ozi directory path. We can confirm that it is correct and working. If you still can't find this directory path, please contact Customer Support to log a formal ticket.

    thanks I found the issue. I hadn't turned off NUM, and there were line numbers in column 73-80. Once I removed them, it started working.
