Left Hand Pointer

Error Code M29

M[UMPS] by Example

Right Hand Pointer

M29, SET or KILL on ssvn not allowed by implementation

Introduced in the 1995 ANSI M[UMPS] language standard.

While the definition of the M[UMPS] language may allow for certain syntactical constructs, not all implementation will allow the use of these at all times.

When an attempt is made to (re-)define or remove information in a structured system variable, while the implementation does not allow such activity, this error will occur.

Kill ^$Job(JOBID)
Kill ^$Routine("%H")
Set ^$Global("^DD","CHARACTER")="Old-Norse"
