Please clarify your specific problem or add additional details to highlight exactly what you need. As it's currently written, it’s hard to tell exactly what you're asking. See the How to Ask page for help clarifying this question. If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

  • It appears that your input for the raw transaction was incorrectly formatted in a way that it couldn't be parsed. Without showing us what you actually put in, it's hard to help you. Please edit your question to provide a representative example of what you were inputting (after removing personal information). Then flag for reopening. – Murch Sep 14 '15 at 10:55

It means that the data you gave to the command is not valid in some way. You may have formatted it wrong, or made some other mistake. Without seeing the exact command you used, there is no way for me to know what is wrong.

´createrawtransaction´ is intended for expert users; it is quite possible to lose your money, permanently, if you make a mistake. If you are "not very IT inclined" then I would strongly recommend not using it. Instead, wait for your Bitcoin Core client to finish syncing, then send your transaction through the regular user interface.
