     To the group,
     Thanks for the 51 replys. It looks like I bumbled my way through
     this setup. The primary responses were:
     -one to many fields. I had 5 fields, and there should have been 4.
     -i did not have my editor set up to be able to perform a crontab -e.
     Thanks again for everyone's help, and I will try to review my work a
     little closer before posting.
     Mark Conroy

     Question for the Group,
     I am running a sparc20 with solaris 2.5.1.
     I have a user trying to set up a cron job to run every 5 minutes. I
     had him vi a file called testcron to perform the following:
     00,10,20,30,40,50 * * * * * /appl/home/user/test5
     then load the file into crontab:
     crontab testcron
     i list it and it is in there:
     crontab -l
     However, it doesn't run. He can run it from the command line fine. I
     check the cron log file an it is showing a return code of 137. Anyone
     know where I can find a place to tell me what these return codes mean.
     Will summarize
     Mark Conroy
