Invalid Key Condition..... An attempt was made to write a record that would create a duplicate key in a relative file; or an attempt was made to write or rewrite a record that would create a duplicate prime record key or a duplicate alternate record key without the DUPLICATES phrase in an indexed file.

Please validate the input data against the file contents and remove the duplicates or if already there skip the record.

you need to investigate your 'duplicates'.

they are only duplicates, because that is the way you defined your key.

if they are valid duplicates - meaning they really should not be considered as duplicate:
define your key differently.

otherwise, as Suresh said, cull your duplicates with sort if you don't want to recode your cobol module.
