A lesson in looking up DFSORT/ICETOOL messages:

DFSORT is an IBM product. DFSORT includes ICETOOL. The messages for IBM products are easily accessible. The easiest way to look up an IBM message is to use IBM's LookAt facility at:

Use [URL] BBCode for External Links

Everyone should bookmark this.

You just choose the version of z/OS you want, e.g. V1R12, type the message into the message ID box (for example, ICE077A), hit enter and the message text is displayed.

The other easy way to look up DFSORT messages is in "z/OS DFSORT Messages, Codes and Diagnosis Guide" which you can access along with all the other DFSORT books from:

Use [URL] BBCode for External Links

Click on "Messages and Codes", then "Informational and Error Messages" and you'll get a clickable list of the DFSORT messages. Here's the direct link:

Hello,

Did you look up ICE077A (as it shows in this topic) ?

28 is a vsam error code, so it will be with the vsam error codes rather than the DFSORT messages. . .
