Reply with quote

While converting a OS/VS Cobol program to Enterprise Cobol program, I am getting a FILE STATUS 39 error.

Error in the spool indicates that there is a mismatch between program's input record length and that of the dataset's LRECL.

Please provide a good solution for this.

Make the program's input record length match the data set LRECL -- the best (and only viable) solution.

I'm from the generation of Enterprise Cobol -- but does that really make a diffenrece whether you use OS/VS Cobol or Enterprise Cobol if the problem statement is about "LRECL mismatch"?

Usually in such situation it gives U4038 at my shop.

FILE STATUS 39 could be any file attribute, not just LRECL. Are you certain it's a LRECL problem? Is the file an ISAM file by any chance instead of a VSAM file?

I need to be convinced it was a logical record length problem. A copy/paste of the actual error message would be preferable to taking someone's word for what the error was. icon_smile.gif

Terry, I agree with you.

If 'error in spool indicates there is a mismatch between...' is true,
why the post?

seems a rather obvious solution. But experience in the forum has shown that
  1. posters don't know what the problem is
  2. and they do not describe the problem sufficiently or accurately


taking things for granted and making assumptions are the reasons that
posters have 'unsolvable' problems.

I have decided not to make suggestions (other that sarcasitc ones) until
the problem is explained and all the relevent info is available.

Yeah, FILE STATUS 39 is quite generic to start with...
