Check the RPG IV manual:

Externally-described data structure
Specify either the EXT keyword or the EXTNAME keyword as the first keyword.
If you specify the EXT keyword, you can also specify the EXTNAME keyword as a later keyword.

EXTNAME
In a free-form definition, the external file and external record format must be specified as character literals or previously-defined named constants representing a character literals.

So, your code snippet should look a little like;

**Free
Dcl-ds dspgms EXT PSDS
         EXTNAME('SYSAPGPF')
         PREFIX(Gv);
End-ds;

HTH,
Brian.

Put a ';' after PREFIX(GV). This is the end of the statement.

Dcl-ds dspgms PSDS
EXTNAME(SYSAPGPF)
PREFIX(Gv);

End-ds;
