While you are correct on the definition of QUAL, John may be on to something. If I can't have the multiple lists I want maybe I can create a list of qualified elements with the parts of the QUAL the elements I am currently trying to make a list out of. Does that make sense?

I beg to differ. QUAL is for qualified names - like library/object or the
jobnumber/jobuser/jobname kind of thing that can be treated as a single
component in the parameters.
Mixed lists are created using ELEM. From the documentation -
"If a parameter's value is a mixed list, the elements of the list must be
defined separately using an Element (ELEM) statement for each element."

You probably want a mixed list for your command parms.
That would be QUAL

subject: Issue with embedded lists in a command
I am working on a command that I want to have a list as one of the
parameters but I also want the parameter to contain a list as one of
I have a code value as the first parameter. For that code value there
are four pieces of information; the code itself, a start date, an end
date, and message information. The message information is itself a
list made up of the message text, configuration text, and size text.
So far so good.
Where the issue comes in is when I define the code and message as lists.
There can be up to two codes and there could be up to three message
lines for each code. When I specify the code with a max value of two
(MAX(2)) and the message with a max value of three (MAX(3)) the
command will not compile and I get the error shown here. Displaying
second level text didn't tell me anything I didn't already know.
CPD0258 30 More than three levels of nesting specified for keyword
I have posted the code here http://code.midrange.com/bf8f32f019.html.
I am not seeing where the three levels are. It looks to me like just
two; the ENRCODE PARM line, and the ELEM line with ENRMSG. Can
someone help me out with what I'm missing?
