HI,

I was not able to load the VSAM file. I could not find out what was the error.


JCl to create the VSAM file
Code:

//USERIDAB JOB CLASS=A,MSGLEVEL=(1,1),NOTIFY=&SYSUID         
//STEP01 EXEC PGM=IDCAMS                                     
//SYSOUT DD  SYSOUT=*                                       
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*                                       
//SYSIN DD *                                                 
  DELETE (USERID.XXXXX.VSAM)  CLUSTER               
  DEFINE CLUSTER (NAME(USERID.XXXXX.VSAM)  -       
                  KEYS(5 0)                  -               
                  RECORDSIZE(31 31)          -               
                  VOLUMES(VPWRKE)            -               
                  INDEXED                    -               
                  CYLINDERS(10 100))         -               
           DATA (NAME(USERID.XXXXX.VSAMDATA)  -   
                 CONTROLINTERVALSIZE(1024)) -               
           INDEX (NAME(USERID.XXXXX.VSAM.INDEX))   



Below is the JCL to laod the VSAM file. The Record length is 31
Code:

108 The RECLEN specified was larger than the maximum allowed, equal to 0, or smaller than the sum of the length and the displacement of the key field of the base cluster or related alternate index (AIX). The RECLEN was not equal to the slot size specified for a relative record data set

Your last post is asking an irrelevant question ...
in this case the 108 is enough...

Superk gave You the RIGHT info to solve Your problem

/EXPLANATION ON
your cluster defines a fixed record lenght of 31...
the data sets provided by SYSIN dd statements have a record lenght of 80..
/EXPLANATION OFF

if it was homework given by a teacher..
the homework was badly described
(usually at the first stages of VSAM teaching the clusters are defined whith a reclength of 80 )
that teacher should be retrained for better ..
1) teaching skills ( not to forget to tell things )
2) technical skill on the subject he teaches

But if looking at Your notes, You find out that all this was said...........

I am not in training. I have been asked to code simple program. For which I need to use th VSAM file. I was able to create the VSAM file. But the JCL I found in some example to load the vsam was giving error 108.
I really did not know that the instream data wil have the records length 80 and because of that the logical record length error is obatined.



Buy how do we load to VSAM file with record length 31
through the instream data.

Create one flat file with 31 length and use it for repro purpose.
