I am facing A004 CATASTROPHIC ERROR IN MODULE error in my eazytrieve program. This program creates report on specific fields. For example If the field name is ID and It has only 3 possible values (0,2,3) then report will be generated like Number of '0' records, Number of '2' records & number of '3' records. Like below
My input file has around 32M records. so it throws an error message. I have referred earlier post regarding the same error, In that, it was mentioned that removed sort workspace & it worked fine. But we dont have any internal sorting or sorting process because the records are already in sorted order.
Please provide me any suggestions for correcting this error

Without even having Easytrieve installed, it only took a few minutes of Google to find this in the CA manual:
A004 CATASTROPHIC ERROR IN MODULE - modname
If another Annn message preceded this error message, you should correct the problem that the preceding message describes and rerun your program. If the error persists, call Computer Associates Technical Support for assistance.
So you need to look for other error messages and resolve them before proceeding, or you need to do as Bill and Dick stated and contact CA support. Since this forum is not part of CA support, you should not be expecting an answer from us.
