Walden, I think the problem is that you can't define parameters in the
*entry list in a data structure. The data structure after all is contained
within your program whereas the passed parameters exist outside the
program.

A neater way to achieve the same thing might be like this.

C     *entry        plist
C     p1bcst        parm                    p01
C     p1bbnb        parm                    p02
C     p1bdst        parm                    p03

C     *like         define    p1bcst        p01
C     *like         define    p1bbnb        p02
C     *like         define    p1bdst        p03
