I received an error in Easytrieve:

*******A008 TOO MANY TABLE ENTRIES - RPBLM002

in my prog. RPBLM002 is defined as:

FILE RPBLM002 TABLE
ARG 02 08 A
DESC 13 15 N 2

RPBLM002 has only these fields:
ELEMENT = ARG
VOLUME = DESC

in manual, explanatin for A008 is given as:
There are more table entries in the indicated external table file than specified on the related FILE statement. Recompile the program after increasing the value in the file's TABLE parameter.

I am using much larger TABLE files in my program prior to RPBLM002.
plz clarify...

CA-Easytrieve/Plus Reference Guide wrote:
TABLE [literal-16]
Literal-16 specifies the maximum number of entries in an external table. If INSTREAM or literal-16 is not specified, the file is an external table whose maximum number of entries is limited by the Options Table parameter TBLMAX. See Chapter 13, “Table and Array Processing,” for more information about table processing.

Hello,

If your data exceeds the ezt maximum allowable table, doing something "dynamic" will not help - you would still exceed the limit.

You aren't by chance trying to load this table so that it might be compared to another file? If you are, you need to re-think how your process will work.
