User is attempting to apply a PCF file to a workspace using the ApplyPCF brave job script or Batch Refresh Process. The process results in the error "Error during PCF apply : Disk operation error Illegal characters in path" in the log file.
The latest version of ApplyPCF.bj expects a certain format for entries in the Project Control File (PCF) used in the script. Specifically, a new line is required for each Project/Object combination.
The old format is as follows for placing the Program.cbl object into two projects, Accounting and Finance.
COBOL "SOURCES\PROGRAM.CBL" "Accounting" "Finance"
The new format requires a separate line for each Project:
COBOL "SOURCES\PROGRAM.CBL" "Accounting" COBOL "SOURCES\PROGRAM.CBL" "Finance"
Applying this format to your PCF file will result in a successful execution of the script.
