Can anyone please tell me the maximum file length that can be used?

Currently I have a requirement that I must increase the length of a file from thirty thousand to more than fifty thousand. This file being a physical sequential during compilation itself it is throwing an error that the length should not be increased beyond thirty two thousand?

Can anybody please suggest a way around this problem

Even if it is not recommended, what about spanned records?

Also, MQseries can store far more than 32K
