Dear All,
Do we have separate OPEN for VSAM and Flat file in Easytrieve.
I have a program which reads a VSAM file.
When I copied the VSAM file to a flat file and used the same easytrive prog with my new Flat file
its giving an error A011 VSAM - OPEN ERROR- CODE 188(BC)

Can anyone help me in this... How shall I open a FLAT file.

Hello,

Just as in COBOL, you cannot use a vsam file definition for a flat file.

If you change the easytrieve file definition to match the flat file, it should work.

Hi,

Did you check reference manuls ?

Incase of sequential files we need to use FB instead VS - File declaration

To access those sequential dataset, we have 2 approaches
1) Use JOB (INPUT) for auto read statement
2) You can use GET statement to manually read recs

Try reading manuals, you will get proper syntax for these.

Thanks,
-Kapil.
