Did you look up the file status 41? This can be found in the sticky at the start of the COBOL forum. Hint: the problem is not a read.

I-O read syntax is no different than INPUT read syntax; why would you think it would be different?

And what does this mean?

If you're talking about dynamically allocating a file to append, the manual is the Language Reference and the link is at the top of the page.

Logic error condition
41
An OPEN statement was attempted for a file in the open mode.

Hi,

You might like to check these similar links as well..

Status Code 41 usually comes in when there is a flaw in your logic - it's a logical error, as suggested, your program logic tries to OPEN the same file again. Try to put a DISPLAY before the statement where you issue an OPEN & check in the SYSOUT how many times your program tries to execute OPEN statement..if two continuous messages are displayed in SYSOUT (& no CLOSE is issued between them)- check your logical flow again.
