Team,

I am getting QST032E error while writing output files in one of DB2 cobol program, uses Quickstart . I tried to QST032E error but i didnt get much .

Solution was provided below "If this is an output file, verify that the
program is properly initializing the LLBB field" . can one of you please explain what is LLBB field?

+QST032E VB LL FIELD INVALID FOR DDNAME

QST032E VB LL FIELD INVALID FOR DDNAME xxxxxx

Explanation: A READ or WRITE to a variable length file encountered a
record that was either longer than the file's LRECL or shorter than 5 (the
minimum LRECL). The DDNAME appears in the accompanying Error Message.

System Action: ABEND U2032 is issued.

User Response: Correct the problem and restart. If this is an input file
that was created using the BSAM access method, verify that all records
were created with proper length fields. You cannot browse the dataset to
verify this as TSO BROWSE uses QSAM and QSAM adjusts the length field if
it is longer than the LRECL. If this is an output file, verify that the
program is properly initializing the LLBB field.
****************************** BOTTOM OF DATA ********************************

Thanks

I've not heard the term "LLBB" used in that context, but it seems possible that the record descriptor word is being referred to.

I've never heard of LLBB or QST error messages either, but this

is quite clear about what your problem is. You SHOULD be able to fix it based on what is said here.

How about showing the code you feel is relevant for your statement that produced the error, including all relevant data definitions. Show the actual error message, and any others in the JSYSMSG.

All in the Code tags, please.
