Not with what you have shown.

Was it a failure in the compiling stage, or in the run? Can you post the end of the output listing, and the program if possible.

Thanks billy,
I tried to run the jcl which has easytrieve program
//Eztrive1 exec pgm=module1,Region=10000k,time=480
//sysprint dd sysout=*
//sysout dd sysout=*
//report1 dd dsn= xxxx.xxxx.xxxx,
Disp=(New,catlg,delete),dataclas=large3,
Unit=sysallda,
Unit =(trk,(15,15),else),
Dcb =(recfm=fb,lrecl=133)
//EZTVFM dd unit= disk, space =(4096,(96000,96000))

But I get the error as A0004 catastrophic error in
Module -A140 0A 13BA

Corrected JCL inserted by moderator:
//EZTRIVE1 EXEC PGM=MODULE1,REGION=10000K,TIME=480
//SYSPRINT DD SYSOUT=*
//SYSOUT   DD SYSOUT=*
//REPORT1  DD DSN=XXXX.XXXX.XXXX,
//            DISP=(NEW,CATLG,DELETE),DATACLAS=LARGE3,
//            UNIT=SYSALLDA,
//            SPACE=(TRK,(15,15),RLSE),
//            DCB=(RECFM=FB,LRECL=133)
//EZTVFM   DD UNIT=DISK,SPACE=(4096,(96000,96000))

So copy and paste from your emulator the parts of the listing I asked for.

Please use the code tags when presenting data and code - search if you do not know how to use them but it is pretty obvious when you use the POSTREPLY button rather than the QuickReply button.

As posted your JCL will fail for numerous reasons - spaces where ther should be no spaces, no leading // on some cards, multiple use of UNIT on one DD etc. I have corrected it as best I can and added it to your post (using the code tags).
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
Regards
Nic

Taking enrico's advice, it looks like you need more space for your EZTVFM. Why not allocate in cylinders. Work out approximately how much space should be used (by consulting the information about your source datasets and seeing what use of the VFM there is).

This is the link from where I got the info

Have you estimated the space you will need from what you are writing to the files?

If you don't have any DO loops, and no stupid hand-built loops, it is just a question of space. You may have changed to CYLs, but you have to supply enough.

If you do have any DO loops or stupid GO TOs, post the code here.

You're not doing a lot to help yourself. For the third time, I'll ask you to post the "bottom" of the output listing, showing the file-usage completed before the crash.
