Hi All,

I am getting compilar error "THE SIZE OF THE "WORKING STORAGE SECTION" EXCEEDED THE COMPILER LIMIT OF 128 MEG, RESULT ARE UNPREDICTABLE" due to size of array.

My question is how can we increase the COMPILER LIMIT FROM 128 MEG

THANKS IN ADVANCE

You can't.

You can look at using LOCAL-STORAGE if you can define something in the main program and the table is less than 128MB itself.

You can also investigate EXTERNAL.

You can also investigate "acquiring" LE storage and using a definition in the LINKAGE SECTION. You may have to use a "window" on this if greater than 128MB.

Unfortunately* you can not go beyond the limits, as Bill said, however, the question is -- why do you need such huge Working-Storage? Can you break them in Sub-modules?

You can also wait until you have Enterprise COBOL V5.1. This is going to be available in June. You need to be on z/OS 1.13 to use it. You will then have up to 2GB for WORKING-STORAGE :-)

I think you need to show your data definition and how you intend to use the data. It is often the case that a different solution is possible, rather than having a huge table.

Don't break it - just sub-divide! icon_wink.gif

As suggested by Bill W. -

Why such a large array? What are you storing in this array?

Defining this array in LINKAGE, using an OCCURS DEPENDING ON, will yield a true variable-length array, as you would only need to acquire the amount of storage necessary, using the LE Callable routine "CEEGTST".

How does the array get populated? Is it via a VSAM file, QSAM file or by some other means?

Please advise....
