Hi all,

I am encountering an error status 0226 while executing an ERASE statement. The record which is being erased is present in the database and it is obtained making it current before executing the ERASE. The OBTAIN statement was successful but I am getting an 0226 error for the ERASE. Below is the ERASE statement used in the code.

ERASE <Record name> PERMANENT MEMBERS

Please provide me any possible reasons for this error.

Hello and welcome to the forum,

I don't "do" idms, but does this not point to the problem (the bold is mine)?

Hi,

Probably an broken chain issue. Try to use the command

Erase <Record name> members all

Please let me know if i am wrong.

Hi Santosh and Sudarsan,

I am not aware in details the reason behind why the issue exactly happens. As per my knowledge - A bad db key has get extracted from a record's , while it was moving in the record set.

Another version is say suppose when a update job running in local mode and after completeion of this job all the areas to be recovered once completion of the run unit, if they are not recovered properly then issue may happens.

One more version is if a retreval job try to retreive a record while an update job using the same record for updating purpose, at that time there is possibly of loosing the currency it is also called as Broken chain.

Usually if this happens in any job, we hold for a couple of minutes and run the job from abending step which executes properly in the next run.

Please let me know if i am going wrong.

Regards,
Uday

Thanks everyone for your help.

This issue has been resolved finally. The record which I was trying to erase was a part of a set which was corrupted. This was discovered by our DBA. This corruption was patched out using the IDMSPFIX (fix page) utility. Then the record was successfully erased from DB.
