Why can't I put a file out to a mainframe?

I have an issue with putting a file out to a mainframe. I am sending, via FTP, a file as follows; I also have the output messages that I am receiving. Are there any other statements that need to be made before or after the put dataset name? AC.FTP.SS.FEDWAR.GL.MONTHLY.CLMSRESV that I should incorporate?

The naming format you are using for the "TO" file is incorrect for the operating system where you are attempting to put the file. Check with the mainframe staff to find the correct format for the put statement. I would attempt to put the file using an interactive FTP session, and then save the correct formatted name that works.
