COBEC1321I <opt> argument should be (area), accepted (value)

The argument for the <opt> option should be a data-area, but a value (literal or equivalent construct) was specified.

This occurs when an option is used both to specify a limit that the application will accept and to return the actual size that CICS returned to the application. The literal was accepted as the limit and no returned value will be made available to the application.

System Action:
The command is processed and generated normally. The value specified for the option will be passed to the emulation, but no area is provided for returning a value to the user application.
The application source should be updated to use a data-area as the argument for this option at some time so that the CICS returned value will be available to the application.
