unable to set parity in doss shell in a batch file!

simple part of my batch file is as follows

@echo on
mode com6 baud=9600 parity=0 data=8 stop=1
set /p x="a01F XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" <nul >\\.\com6
set /p x="a01F XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" <nul >\\.\com6
set /p x="a01F XXXXXXXXXXXXXXX" <nul >\\.\com6

however when ran i get ...

Invalid parameter - parity=0

when i omit the parity part i get

status for device COM6:
   baud:                   9600
   parity:                  Even
   data Bits:             8
   stop ......

i have tried parity=none and various other settings, i however cannot figure out the proper syntax.

Use a N instead.You can also shorten the command to
 mode com6 9600,N,8,1,P
