Reply with quote

Hi All,

I have a PS file with PACKED DATA in it. I could not open the file in 3.4. I am getting a a error message

" IEA705I ERROR DURING GETMAIN SYS CODE = 878-10 USERID TSOLOGON $$$LOGON 00
IEA705I 00F91B80 007F8118 007F8118 00005200 0023E2D8
"
"

System abend code 878
Reason code 10

"

From the ISPF tutorial I found the reason as " 878 - INSUFFICIENT VIRTUAL STORAGE "

I dont know how to increate the Virtual space to open the file.


I could open the file in Browse mode in FILEAID where can i cannot give he command " PACK OFF"

Please some one help me

Edit it in batch using an edit macro and specify "REGION=0M".

Hi Prino,

Thanks for your reply..
I tried this edit macro

/* REXX */
ADDRESS ISREDIT "MACRO"
ADDRESS ISREDIT "PACK OFF"
ADDRESS ISREDIT "SAVE"
ADDRESS ISREDIT "END"
EXIT

but it didnot work...could you please tell me where to add the "REGION=0M". ?

Thanks

Hello,

Yup, just another wasted iteration. . .

Do not post "it didn't work" as this is a complete waste of everyone's time. . . icon_sad.gif

What happened? A syntax error? An abend? Undesired results?

The REGION parameter goes on the JOB or the EXEC statement. I'd suggest both. . .

Sorry for wasting you time

I used a REXX exec to edit the file with edit macro

here is my EXEC

/* REXX */
ADDRESS TSO
"ALTLIB ACTIVATE APPL(EXEC) DA('MYPDS.EXEC')"
ADDRESS ISPEXEC
"EDIT DATASET('Filename') MACRO(PACK)"

EXIT

and my MACRO is as i pasted earlier

i got a error message like this


IEA705I ERROR DURING GETMAIN SYS CODE = 878-10 USERID TSOLOGON $$$LOGON 00
IEA705I 00F91B80 007A08E0 007A08E0 00005200 00237580
IRX0250E System abend code 878, reason code 00000016.

IRX0255E Abend in host command EDIT or address environment routine ISPEXEC

And how about your JCL?

Preferably between
Code:
[code][/code]
tags, so that it remains readable as JCL.

1. you apparently have a large file, or a file with large records.

2. if you would read prino's post,
properly,
he told you to run EDIT in Batch, with a Macro to change the PACK attribute.
you ran it it foreground.

3. Why are you EDITing the file, anyway?

4. As usual, if you would tell us what you want to do,
instead of how you want to do it,
we could offer suggestions.

5. besides, what problem is there with the PACK ON?

dbzTHEdinosauer,

here are my answers.

1. Yes it seems like a large file

2. I donot know how to run a macro thru Batch.

3. The data in the file is in PACKED format..I need to unpack it. I can use the PACK OFF command in EDIT mode.

4.its same as #3.

5.my program is not reading the file with PACKED data properly.

Thanks

No clue if it will work on datasets, in which case a BATCH edit is your only choice.
