I am trying to run a script and am getting the following
error pa_batching.ksh[24]: syntax error at line 25 : `{' unmatched

The script I am running is as follows

#! /bin/ksh
# Filename: factset_transfer
# Author: Steven bowskill
# Description: This file is the main script for the PA BATCHING FactSet automation


#set -vx
printLog "$1: $2"
exit $1


function getfilesandcopy

##set up some vars
##export them now

export paremote_node
export paremote_user
export paremote_password
export paftpcommand
export pafileExt
export paftptransmethod
export paftpPramFile

#create the file of the xls file in then this file will also con
tain the accounts

awk -F']' '/]/ {print $2}' $1 > $palocal_check/factserepor

# now go thru this file lookgin for the account
for acct in `cat $palocal_check/factsereports.txt`

cat $palocal_check/dirsfound

##get the correct name of the file from the dirs.txt fi
## NewFileToCopy=`awk -F, '/
