I am translating batch code to a report, and do not know what VSAM return codes '76', '77', or '79' received upon a return from attempting to open VSAM files - actually means. Does anyone know? Would someone "please" enlighten me, as it is in none of the other books and documents that I have....

Thank you.

Hello and welcome to these forums icon_smile.gif

What was the difference in the code between the opens that received the 76, 77, & 78 return codes?

Please post your select, fd, & open from the COBOL code, the run jcl for the problem step, and any diagnostic info that was presented in any of the sysout datasets.

At a first look(search) the only match is for an OPEN reason code x'76'

Quote:

118(X'76')
Attention message: The data set was not properly closed
but OPEN's implicit verify was successfully executed.


not an error but a simple warning;
the listcat statistics might be ioncorrect.

regards
