John,

Yes [PARAMATER NAME] is an indication of an optional parameter in many
systems (unix man pages come to mind first). However, I can assure you that
Microsoft SQL Server used them to "quote" server, database, schema object,
and column named in Microsoft SQL Server, exactly as one would use double
quotes in DB2.

Optional Parameters . . .

Also, if you have embedded blanks in your schema name etc, you may have to
play with quotes to enclose them, or the whole string to the filename.

The script is basically rejecting the 4 part file name, that is,
[linked server name].[catalog name].[library name].[file name]
