Hello,

Please post all of the disgnostic information, not just part of it.

If you did this in JCL, post the jcl.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Follow the same steps again and when this happens, press F1 (depending on what this presents, you may need to press F1 a second time for more detailed info).

I'm not certain why this error occurred.

What is shown when you press F1 a second time?

Is the file on this volume (TMPV1D) if you look in the vtoc? Might the dataset be in use on some other system?

Dick, I PF1 one second time and got the message like ' Deallocation failed for data set 'ACTPAYT.R8168428.FTPFILEA' ', this data set is on volumn TMPV1D, and no other system is using it.

Hello,

Have you been able to delete the dataset?

If not, suggest you talk with your storage management people.

Use MSGID ON to display the message number. You may be able to get more information by searching on the message number.

First you see the short message in the upper right, then when you press F1, you should see the long message, with message number included.

You could enter TSO ISRDDN to check that your session has not allocated the file and failed to free it.

If this is the case, use F to free the allocation and then delete the dataset.
