hi,

I am getting the file status 37 in the open statement of my vsam file opened in o/p mode.

OPEN OUTPUT vsam-file.

The vsam file contains data. According to the program logic , records are written into this file.

Please help why the open statement is failing?

Hello,

Are you sure you have named the correct dataset name in the jcl? VSAM files have multiple dataset names, but you should not name the data or index datasets in the dd for the file.

If this is not the problem, Please post the SELECT and the FD from the program as well as the jcl for this step. Also, post the DEFINE for the vsam file.
