I have a requirement that a VB file of 19000 LRECL should be splitted to 2 files of FB file and VB file. I have done the first part. i.e FB file of 6350 length. Secondly I have to take the second half to a VB file.

UNIT=SYSDA,SPACE=(CYL,(100,100),RLSE),
DCB=(BLKSIZE=0,LRECL=12678,RECFM=VB)

RECORD TYPE=V
SORT FIELDS=COPY
OUTREC FIELDS=(1,4,5:6327,12674)

The error is
WER244A OUTREC - SHORT RECORD

If I am not giving 1,4 in outrec fields the error is RDW not defined. Please help me in this to resolve the error.

Code:
OUTREC FIELDS=(1,4,5:6327,12674)


12674 + 6327 = 19001
But your In LRCEL is 19000.

What basis you are splitting your input fuile to FB & VB files... in terms of RECORD COUNT ?????

The splitting criteria is as follows

The var file of 19000 has the fixed data of 6322 bytes. then the var data starts from 6323. The file should be splitted to 2 files, one is fixed of 6322 and other var of 12674 + 4.

12674 + 6326 = 19000

All the records from 5 - 6326 should be in file 1 (FB)
all the records from 6327 - 19000 should be file 2 (VB)

Thanks
