Hi All,

We are migrating to Db2 V8 and when trying to compile using DB2 V8, I

am getting...

"ASMA034E Operand xxx beyond active USING range by 16 bytes" bytes"

Any idea how this can be solved? We dont have any issues with DB2 V7.

find out which csect in Your source has grown outside it' s old addressability layout

due probably to v8 copybook changes and find a way to reduce it' s size
or review the register usage and add a new base register

if it is an in house application, then there should be somebody able to fix it
a useless answer ( even if technically correct ) to the base register question could be
Code:

before
*234567890123456
         USING csectname,REG1
         .........  instructions to load the REG1 with a valid address
after
         USING csectname,REG1,REG2
         .........  instructions to load the REG1 with a valid address
         LA   REG2,2048(,REG1)
         LA   REG2,2048(,REG2)

the above snippet is for 24/31 byte addressing mode
for 64 bits the mumbo jumbo might be completely different
( anyway there are not many people in 64 bit assembler programming )

if the issue is with some third party software - IBM included , contact the provider for a fix
