Select 'Case' in free format

Select 'Case' in free format

I'm trying to play with free format select statement. I can't find out what I'm missing here:
 Select Case Zter ;
==>         aaaa
5507 30 a      001039  A semi-colon is not specified at the end of a free-form        specification.  
 When '8' ;      
  Then ;        
  Zterm='0045' ;
  Zbd1t='45' ;  
   EndSl ;

RE: Select 'Case' in free format

      When Zter = 8;
         Zterm = '0045';
         Zbd1t = '45';
      When ...


RE: Select 'Case' in free format
