Do you have option ADATA or NODATA specified in your compile? If NOADATA, nothing will be written to SYSADATA.

Hi Robert, Its writing to SYSADATA but in x'0042' record, "structure displacement" field value is x'0000'. In the manual, I can spot below comment that this will be zero for variably located items. But mine is working storage variable.

Structure displacement - AL4 -
Offset of symbol within structure. This offset is set to 0 for variably located items.

Structure displacement is a 4-byte field; you have providing us the first 2 bytes as X'0000' -- what are the second 2 bytes?
