What does file status 90 means? i am encountering it in a flat file which is opened in an I-O mode? ( As per the info from error assist it says that it is some VSAM logic error . But in my case it is a flat file ).

Hi

First, here is the link to the COBOL status keys. Look for File Status key 90.


http://ibmmainframes.com/references/a27.html


If you can post the entire program, if it's not to big, would be best. But if not, would you please post important parts, SELECT, FD, OPEN, READ, etc.

and any messages you might get pertaining to this in sysout.

Thanks,

Dave

nallapureddy,

We use I-O mode to update and EXTEND mode to add records at end in a COBOL program.

Certainly, you can open a flat file in I-O mode.

Let me know if you have more doubts.

HTH.

in i-o mode we can just rewrite a record for sequential files.
If we want to insert a new record we must open it in extend mode.

Deepti,

If my guess is correct the flat file which you are using might have been created with STORCLASS=COMPRESS mode in the PROC or JCL ,so when it is opened in I/O mode it creates the problem.To rectify this remove the COMPRESS mode during creation of the file so that this issue is resolved.

Correct me If I am wrong.

Regards,
Muthuvel.

Also remember that if the "flat file" is on tape, updating a rec in it is difficult (some at IBM say it's impossible).
