hi,

Can anybody please give me the solution to resolve the user abend 655.

when i was running my jcl to execute a batch program which includes the DBCKPT logic, the program is abending at " CALL DBCKPT USING READ-FUNC". this call function in prog is to read the input file.

actually my run jcl is doing a unload into a flatfile. This file is given as input to my cobol batch prog. the prog reads that file, process and give the output which wil be stored in an output file.

the unload was successful, but after unload the prog is not able to read that file. its giving abend when it hits the line "CALL DBCKPT USING READ-FUNC" in my prog( when it tries to read the i/p file in which the unload is there).

when i checked in spool for the reason, it was saying " WHEN READING FROM RECFM=F FILE THE I/O AREA LENGTH WAS NOT EQUAL TO LRECL FOR DD: INPFILE".

is this the problem in my input and output file record lengths? or is it an error occured due to unreadable format of the input records?

Please help..

If the abending program is proprietry software, please read the product documentation.

If the abending program is written in house, please review the application documentation or program source code.

I think the information you need is available.

READING would tell me the INPUT file into you Cobol program is where to look.

What is the ACTUAL lrecl of this file (not what you think it is)?

What is the size of the 01 level of the FD associated with INPFILE?

The message is telling you what?
