There is sometimes an art to reading IBM manuals. And sometimes they are just dumb.
ISPC045E: Error. Line 51 of file "datasetnamenotrelevant".
Unable to format data. Reason code was "16".
This is from a recent thread. You look up the message, there is no indication of what possible Reason Code's there are or what they might mean and the message is "self-explanatory". Looking further, even the Line number is suspect. Is this the least helpful error message ever?
Elsewhere, doing a VSAM backup to an unlabelled tape. The manual says you can do it and it can be multi-volume. However, when you look at restore, it says you can do it, but only for a single volume. (this was VSE a long time ago, don't know if still true).
I used to love something in the JCL index. I tried looking up "Backward Reference", I found it, it said "see Reference, Backward".
I'm sure this can't be all of them.
