No, the problem here is that YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHAT VARIABLE,BLOCKED,SPANNED MEANS. The LRECL and BLKSIZE are perfectly valid for a VBS data set. They are not valid for a RECFM=V or RECFM=VB data set, but they are fine for a RECFM=VBS data set. Nobody can suggest "correct values" for them since they already have the correct values.the problem here is the lrecl and blocksize are inconsistent for recfm=v
ISPF does not support VBS. Your only real option, unless someone more clever than me can propose something else, is to copy the dataset to a RECFM VB dataset and browse the copied dataset.nn_az wrote:Hi Robert,
thanks for the reply.
when i tried to browse this ds, it shown INVALID RECORD FORMAT.
Then i pressed F1.i got the message---LRECL and block size are inconsistent for RECFM=V data set---
