I am trying to make a copy of a PS file.

I am using 3.3 option.

And I am using the file attributes of the input file to allocate the output file too.

The output file is getting allocated but the contents are not getting copied.

It throws an error message as follows.

Hi,

Attributes seems to be correct, I'd a thought that 'combination' of LRECL with Block size is not right or the Organization of input & output are different..

try again, please, and when the message appears, PF1.

often I get all kinds of msgs when I allow the 'MODEL' to prefill he mgt/stor/ class parms -

I just space things out. leaving only basic dcb parms. Often sms does not like me using something for 'my' ds when I am modeling from a production file.

Hitting F1 a 2nd time is always a good idea when you get an error message in ISPF. More details.

Hi all,

Thanks for your responses.

I gave PACK OFF in the input file and tried copying using 3.3 and it worked perfectly fine for me.
