Catia IUA GCWFAC, create a face from edges

Catgeo call is:

where    input:
              NDOM         I4  # of domains

              JEDG(NBEDGT) I4  Addr of each edge/domain
                               where (NBEDGT =

I am continuously getting an error when making this call.  
My code looks like:
   INTEGER*4   NDOM            !num of domains
   INTEGER*4   NBEDG(100)      !num of edges per domain
   INTEGER*4   JLIN(1000,100)  !each edge addr per domain
   INTEGER*4   JFAC            !fac
The error I'm getting is #27 - ELEMENT TYPE IS INVALID!
Note:  my JLIN elements are all lines projected onto a plane.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
