Agreed! but, if this is the case, If the data is there in the cache, I should atleast be getting the syntax errors. But i dont get any errors and the script that calls this messages runs with RC 0 when executed. And the trace doesn't give any fruitful response. Please advice.My guess is that your first attempt had a syntax error. After that, even though you fixed it, ISPF continued to use the cached version. Fail.
