Hi pjnithin,

I don't use ezytrive, but I do use DUMMY output files often. Sometimes, when the program does not have the LRECL defined within the program, it needs to fetch it from the DD. In these cases I need to code the LRECL on the DUMMY.

i.e.

//OUTFILE DD DUMMY,LRECL=124

Give this a try.

Thanks David.
It worked, I didn't had the record length coded in the ezytrieve.
