Hi,

In my JCL, I specified RECFM as VB and in COBOL file declaration I specified RECORDING mode as V. I am writing some information to that file. Now the problem is always the o/p file format is coming as VBA instead of VB. due to this one byte is getting truncated.

Thanks,
Gana

OK. So make the LRECL one byte longer.
