it would be nice if You posted the whole message ( or sequence of them - IE... IDC... ) You received


unless it is a cobol issue and it should have been posted in COBOL forum
after having looked Yourself at the cobol manuals
( for which there is a link at the top of the page )

Look up the full message(s) in a(some) manual(s).

If you still have a problem, put together a more detailed post for us, with full information about all the information you have.

I am reading the VSAM file in CICS.
using below syntaxes.
EXEC CICS READ FILE('FPTXPK0') INTO(TAX-RECORD)
LENGTH(WS-LEN) RIDFLD(WS-KEY)
RESP(WS-RESP)
END-EXEC.

where key structure is.
ID - 3 bytes
filler - 1byte
date - 8 byte
filler - 1 byte

I am using ID as the key for reading the file.

but when I tried to display the RESP value it has 15.

I tried to google and only thing whcih I could find was that it means 'too many indexed files open'

So i have come here to seek the help.
Please let me know if there is some more information required.

Are you talking about MF COBOL, I don't do much VSAM but I've not seen this error code with Enterprise COBOL.

As Anuj has pointed out, you have just googled, found some message for number 15 of some status, added the whole lot up and got to 2. Well, we do binary.

Dig into the CICS manual, look up the READ especially the RESP and see how it suggests you find out how to interpret the response code. It won't suggest "do a google search and get the answer by a quick look at the results page".

Suggestion: there is a link to manuals at the top of this page. Click on it, find the CICS Language Reference manual, and read Appendix A until you discover what a 15 in the response variable actually means. You can then go to the section on the READ in that very same manual and it will tell you much useful information.

Personally, with the IBM manuals available here as well as at the IBM web site, I am flabbergasted that you even CONSIDERED using Google on this response code!
