I don't think I can make an exact suggestion, but I can pinpoint the 
source of my troubles:

The documentation clearly points out that (G)PRINT:vname:format is the 
proper way to specify one of these parameters. However, reading through 
the documents did not clearly relay to me that the proper definition for a 
vname is declared as "(C|V)DEF:name=data,operator".

Re-reading everything, its easier to find. A helpful additon might be 
reminder/link on 
that tells people to find out how to define a vname on 

Again, thanks for the help.
