I got this during a link edit of a large load module:

IEW2641S 4B02 MODULE EXCEEDS THE LENGTH LIMITATIONS OF THE TARGET FORMAT.

What does it mean? I made the data set bigger... there is plenty of room.

A load module cannot be larger than 16 meg. The only practical way to build a larger executable module is to build it as a program object using the Binder.

Sorry, I said link edit, but it is actually the binder:
Code:

Is the target load library PDS or PDSE? It might have to be the latter.

As one of my mentors when I was just starting out often said, "Rats!"

I figured - wrongly - that everyone knows a program object must be in a PDSE.
