ICE027A Error in a very simple chop job

Postby golemis » Wed Apr 25, 2018 3:25 pm

Hi folks,
I have a FB130 dataset and need to produce a new FB120 chopping out the first 10 bytes of the original. Thought that it would be quite simple to achieve it by :
//NEWSTEP  EXEC PGM=SORT
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSLIST  DD SYSOUT=*
//SORTIN   DD DISP=SHR,DSN=HLQ.FB130.FILE
//SORTOUT  DD DSN=HLQ.FB120.FILE,
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG),
//            SPACE=(CYL,(1,1),RLSE),UNIT=SYSDA,
//            DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=120)
//SYSIN    DD *
   OPTION COPY
   OUTFIL BUILD=(11,120)
/*

However, I get ABEND ABENDU0027 and message
ICE027A 9 END OF SORTOUT  FIELD BEYOND MAXIMUM RECORD LENGTH

with any attempt with larger lrecl's, VB, and any other similar attempt.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks, George

When you do a 3.2 on the data set what does it say?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I somehow do not think that you are getting thsat message. I get:
ICE213A 0 INVALID OUTFIL STATEMENT OPERAND

so check that you are looking at the correct step.

Pls consider it solved, was using a DIFFERENT dataset for SORTIN, than the one I though and I should. And when NicC asked me for the DCB of the dataset, i posted the DCB of the dataset I should use, and not the one I was using. My apologies.

Now everything works fine, RC0
