It looks like you need to define the command string length as 15P 5.  You might 
also consider prototyping the call to make it easier to work with.  I think 
there is an 
example in the manual.  Here is what ours looks like:

     DQCmdExc          PR                  EXTPGM('QCMDEXC')                    
Execute a command.
     D PR_CmdStr                   4096A   CONST OPTIONS(*VARSIZE)
     D PR_CmdStrLen                  15P 5 CONST
...
     C                   CALLP     QCmdExc(CmdStr:
     C                                     %LEN(%TRIMR(CmdStr)))

We built a this into a subprocedure so we can do something like:
EVAL ErrFlg = ExcCmd('SndMsg Msg(''Bla Bla Bla'')': RtnMsgID: RtnMsgTxt)
The return message is set from the program status data structure.

I'm trying to use the QCMDEXC utility from an ILE RPG program, but I
receive a runtime error which says that the syntax command passed to
QCMDEXC is incorrect. The same sentence used from the command line is
successful, so I suppose that the problem is related with the parameters
definition.

Here you have an example:

*D specs:
VCmd S 255
VLen S 15S 2

*C specs
CmdParms PLIST
  PARM   VCmd
  PARM  VLen

  EVAL VCmd='SNDMSG(''TEXT'') TOUSR(QSYSOPR)'
  EVAL VLen=29

  CALL 'QCMDEXC' CmdParms

Could anyone point me to the error in my RPG code?
