hi guys

I got pretty tricky problem.

In production program I have seen moving of higher record length variable to lower record length variable.How it was achieved.That production program is working fine.

Hi,
Higher record length structure might have got lots of unused fields reserved for future requirements at the bottom and now it's just spaces and so it could be moved to lower length structure.Or they wouldn't mind about the truncation of characters/fields at the end of the higher rec length structure.Let us know the layout of both records and other info,if you are looking for more.
Regards,
Sridevi.

hi

Thanks for the reply

Take the case.I wouldn't mind for the truncation of characters/fields at the end of the higher rec length structure.when I moved higher record length variable to lower record length variable I have received U4038 when performing RUNJCL.i.e O/S won't allow to truncate.I think there should be other approach

What you say shouldn't happen. Perhaps you haven't described the problem correctly.

Why don't you use cut & paste to show us the pgm code (WS & PD) involved anf the system msg(s) involved in the error condition. Then maybe we can offer some intelligent comment.
