Hello All,

I have a requirement of splitting a file into multiple output files. When I open multiple files at the begining of the code, the code abends with S878 RC=10
The REGION parameter has been set to 0M.

I could find a topic on the same issue but it suggested no solution and moreover the file were being dynamically allocated. In my case the files have already been allocated.

I am using a COBOL code to split the file into multiple files depending on a parameter. The REGION=0M has been specified in the job card.

The error message : CEE3250C The system or user abend S878 R=00000010 was issued.

Please let me know if any other details are required

Certain control blocks must reside below the 16MB line so there is a limit to the number of files OPEN at the same time.

How many are OPEN?

Your probable choices:
1. open fewer files at the same time
2. use BUFNO=1 on the files to reduce storage but performance suffers
3. use smaller BLKSIZEs on the files to reduce storage but performance suffers
