<ILLEGAL VALUE> when trying to call $ZF("GETFILE") on OpenVMS

Per the information at I am trying to use a call to $ZF("GETFILE") to obtain information about an OpenVMS file. But I get an <ILLEGAL VALUE> error.

For example:

w $zf("GETFILE",filename,"UIC")



My filename variable contains the full path and name of a file that I own. I hold the %All role in Cache.

This is 2012.1.5 on OpenVMS/IA64  V8.4

Any ideas what's going wrong?
