This issue has been solved. See solution.

I need to make a report and a timeline for day of the duration of the backup, to schedule future backup.

My O.S is Windows 2008.

So i am trying to use:

bpdbjobs -report -gdm >> backups\reports_master.csv

So i read this article:

But there not say what are the code error status for columm 4 for failure backup.

Thank you.

Not sure about your requirement... 
Do you need the explanation of status code as well?
If so, this is not stored in jobs database. 

Short description of status codes can be obtained with 'bperror -S <status-code>'.

You can also find all possible error codes with a explanation at

or find them in a document called Symantec NetBackup 7.5 Status Codes Reference Guide
