Scheduled Job Last Result code

I have a Windows 2k8R2 server that I have a couple of scheduled tasks on.  The job in question runs and completes successfully, however when observed, the Last Run Results indicates a 0x7 instead of a job completed successfully (0x0) notification.  I am interested in identifying what this code is and have not been able to find anything on either the Microsoft Web site or the net in general.  The only reference to this code that I found was either to the day of the week, Saturday which the task is not run on, or a low disk alert on a disk defrag scheduled job which this is not.  

If someone could help me figure this one out I would appreciate it.

The result comes from the program that was executed by the scheduled task, so it's all up to that program what result codes it returns.  For instance, if a task runs a .BAT file that just runs Robocopy, the result code will be from Robocopy.  Hopefully the developer of the app publishes some information about the result codes returned by their program.

Can I ask what was lacking in my response to merit a "B" grade?
