Paralell Transporter Read Error

Hi

I am trying to use the Dataconnector operator in TPT to read a sequential file (on MVS). The code to describe the operator is as follows:
DEFINE OPERATOR FILE_READER
TYPE DATACONNECTOR PRODUCER
SCHEMA DEBTDELTA
ATTRIBUTES
(
VARCHAR FILENAME = 'DDELTA',
VARCHAR DIRECTORYPATH = '',
VARCHAR OPENMODE = 'READ',
VARCHAR FORMAT = 'UNFORMATTED'
);

However I get the following error when try to run:
FILE_READER: Unanticipated function failure. Function name is 'getcwd'. Function return code is '0'.
Operator(DCONOP) instance(1): INITIATE method failed with status = Fatal Error

However, if I try and read the same data stored in a PDS member, and using the DirectoryPath attribute to specify the PDS name, it works.

Any advice on how to get this to work?

Cheers
