Assist Error Code

Postby Susansuth » Thu Oct 30, 2014 10:44 am

I have a copy of the manual that lists the Assembler error codes, but the description is not a lot of help for me.

I'm getting this error message:

222 RECORD LIMIT EXCEEDED
The user attempted to print or punch more records than was given by combination of R, RD, and RX option values. Execution has been terminated, and at least a partial dump given.

My program is terminating after printing out about 15 lines of my printout (out of a total of 21) and the assembler lists my XPRNT line as the purported culprit of the error message. The 15 lines print just fine previous to this but then the program abends.

Are there typical causes for this error that I can look for in my program?

Any help would be appreciated!

Thank you!

I have ASSIST, but don't use it.

It appears you have to specify some parameter though I'm not 100% sure how to do this.

R - output record limit. According to my documentation, the default is 10,000.
RD - records saved for dump
RX - execution + dump page limit

So it looks like you need to increase R.

Thank you so much for your help on this!

I submitted the question to my professor, who consulted with a couple other professors, (because he couldn't readily identify the problem), and it turns out that my print line carriage control character was a 1 rather than a 0, so the system was counting each print line as a new page. Apparently, there's some sort of limit as to the number of pages that can be printed, and I hit that. When I changed the carriage control character to 0, the problem was resolved.

Whew! :)

Thanks again for your help! I appreciate it! :)
