Now, the token "STEP70" is not on relative line 90 of the data set (as suggested by the sysout), but on line 79. Moreover, I seem to be unable to manipulate any line in any way, invariably getting the ISPT017 mesage. Please advise.

Did you rule out:
System Programmer Response: Check the ISPTLIB (or appropriate table input library) for the following possible causes:
* The table input library may have inconsistent DCB information for the concatenated data sets.
* A real I/O error may have occurred. Try to browse the table input library in PDF Browse to see if an I/O error occurs outside of table services.
