Reply with quote

Hi,
I am trying to copy one VB file (with lenth 1079) to another file (with length 1063) .
I have already created FILEB with length 1063.
I written following code but it is abending with ABENDU0217.

Code:

//STEP001 EXEC PGM=IEFBR14                             
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//BICOUT DD DSN=FILEB,
//          DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),                   
//          DCB=(RECFM=VB,LRECL=1063),                 
//          SPACE=(CYL,(10,10),RLSE),                   
//          UNIT=SYSDA                                 
//*-----------------------------------------------------
//*--                     SORT STEP                     
//*-----------------------------------------------------
//STEP1 EXEC PGM=SORT                                   
//SORTIN DD DSN=FILEA,DISP=SHR     
//SORTOUT DD DSN=FILEB,           
//        DISP=SHR                                     
//SYSIN DD *                                           
   SORT FIELDS=COPY                                     
/*                                                     
//SYSOUT DD SYSOUT=*                                   
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                 
 


Can you suggest what is the problem in the JCL?

Thanks,
Sudhakar.

In addition to above,
The input file FILEA doesnot contain any record with length more than 1063.
I hope this will be helpful.

I ran the scenario you mentioned with DFSORT (no records longer than 1063 in FILEA) and got a RC=0.

The U0217 is associated with message ICE217A which you would get if FILEA did contain a record with a length of more than 1063 bytes. For example, when FILEA had a record with a length of 1064 bytes, I received this ICE217A message:

ICE217A 0 1064 BYTE VARIABLE RECORD IS LONGER THAN 1063 BYTE MAXIMUM FOR SORTOUT

I assume you received a similar message indicating that at least one of your records is longer than 1063 bytes. The LRECL for FILEB must be large enough to contain the longest record from FILEA.
