Hi,

I am currently working on converting VSCOBOLII codes to eCOBOL standard.

I would like to know the difference between the VSAM File Status code 98 under VSCOBOLII(CMPR2 compiler) and eCOBOL(NOCMPR2 compiler).

Thanks,
Siva

as far I as I know, the 2 char file status codes have not changed.

but, since COB II, IBM has always suggested that for VSAM, that the second data area of the 'FILE STATUS IS' clause be used

Thanks for the response dbz, I couldn't get the second part of the reply 'that the second data area of the 'FILE STATUS IS' clause be used', can you clarify on this.

Regards,
Siva

Check the manual, Siva ... VSAM files with FILE STATUS clause can have a second variable which contains details about VSAM errors. It's a group field of 3 2-byte binary values with the return, feedback, function codes in them.
