I was unable to reproduce this issue with Net Express 5.1, but it does fail on both Net Express 3.1 and 4.0.

It sounds like an issue that was resolved in Net Express 5.1 onward.

Neither one of those old product versions is supported anymore but the error you are receiving is most likely because the DIALECT directive you are using does not support that syntax.

Try using

$SET DIALECT"MF"
