Hi,

I have a new VSAM file created. In the program the VSAM file is opening in the input mode. When the program is executed, it is giving file-status "35" for opening of VSAM file.

I created a temporary record in the VSAM file using a simple program (open in output and close). But still it gave file-status 35 for open.

I inserted a blank record and executed the program, it executed successfully.

I want know, how to initialize the vsam file in the program to avoid this file-status 35 for open in input mode?

The initialization of VSAM file can be done through a JCL, before the execution of the program?

Thanks in advance,

Naveen

You may get file status 35 when you try to open a NON-OPTIONAL or UNAVAILABLE file in INPUT/EXTEND Mode.

Millan,

Thanks for your reply.

In my program, the VSAM file has to be opened in input mode.
Is there any solution for this other than inserting a blank record before the execution of the program.

Yes, you can use OPTIONAL phrase on Select clause.

Better to check the file status before opening the file itself to avoid status errors.

Code:
OPEN INOUT <filename>.
IF <filestatus>  = "35" OPEN OUTPUT <filename>
