I would like to know the difference between the error code B-37 and E-37. Both relate to space shortage during allocation but an eexample would definitely help clarify the difference.

Thanx!!

Hi
B-37 - Disk volume out of space, can't write output. The system gave all the primary space and as much as secondary space it could
E-37 - There was insufficient space on the volume. To solve this problem is specify more volumes in JCL

Hope this helps!

Thanx a lot for pointing me in the right direction guys..

From what I gleaned,

SB37 -- End of volume .. this may be solved by reducing the primary or secondary space requests, i.e., the system is unable to allocate the requested space in one volume. Another alternative would be to exactly specify a particular volume serial which has the space needed. A third way might be to request the allocation to be done on multiple volumes.

SE37 -- End of extents... this would mean that the maximum space allocated (primary +16 extents) is not sufficient to hold the entire data. This implies we have to increase the primary /secondary space allocation parameters.

First, educing the primary or secondary space requests cannot resolve SB37 abends. The only way is to specify volume which has enough space.
If you specify very large allocation space for the dataset, and the system cannot provide the space you specified, the system can reduce the space requirement automatically.(If you look at the job log, and you can see what system does in this occasion.)

Second, maximum space dataset can allocate is (Primary +15 extents)! not 16 extents.

Any particular reason you're responding to a thread that has been inactive for FOUR years?
