I have an assembler program in which i am reading VSAM file and writting it to the output file. I have increased the size of the VSAM file from 20 K to 32K now but i have not changed the RCB which which i have using for 20 K that is
W@RCB DS CL((44+((AAMAXID+20)*4))+(9*240)) = 2344, here AAMAXID EQU 15

What should i putting for 32 K?

how to display the the values in assembler?

according to the IBM acronym dictionary
Quote:
record control byte (RCB)
In multileaving telecommunications access method (MTAM), a control character used to identify each record type within a transmission block.


we would be grateful if instead of using your local jargon You would use
a neuter terminology

we spend time to understand and find solution for Your issues,
You should spare us the time to understand Your local jargon


best place/person to ask would be the people who developed the <thing>

All the info needed to process a vsam object in assembler is usually obtained thru the SHOWCB macro
and the relevant storage areas are GETMAINed/OBTAINed with the sizes acquired with the SHOWCB

the area You are defining is not a general VSAM service area, so better ask inside Your organization
