GENERIC jobs

Hi.  I'm trying to setup a "generic" job and running into issues.  The HELP isn't very clear / doesn't provide specific examples of how to set this up.  I thought it'd be pretty simple, but must be missing something.

I created a variable object that has a combination of UNIX & Windows agents listed.  I created a script that does a PREP_PROCESS_VAR through the variable and then does a PUT_READ_BUFFER on the agent name and then ACTIVATE_UC_OBJECT my generic job.

I found one reference from

Michael A. Lowry

 indicating that PUT_ATT wasn't needed, but I am still running into errors.

6/2/2017 7:38:57 AM -  U00007073 Error during generation. A Job object of the type GENERIC has to contain a variable &AGENT# or &OVERWRITE_AGENT#.

My variable name is &AGENT# so I'm not sure what's wrong.

Can anyone point me in a direction here?  I've never used this object before - just exploring new functionality.  Any assistance is appreciated.

Thanks!
