Rather than us fixing your errors one by one, how about consulting your documentation/searching the web to find out what WER244A means? You could even just guess from the text of the message.

You have "variable length records". But

  56:44,419)


Here you copy from position 44 for a length of 419 bytes. Not all your records are the full length. Your records are not fixed in length.

What you need is:

  56:44)


This, as the last definition on the statement, says "copy from start position 44 to the end of the current record". With that code, you'll not get a "short record" unless any records on your file are less than 44 bytes long.

56+419 = 474, it is actully 475 but counting from the number of bytes from 56 to 419 it is 474 in length :)

Well, excuse me,but it is bad manners to solicit responses apart from making an initial post. You have provided no indication that you have correctly implemented the last suggestion. Probably people are busy doing other things like their own jobs until you come back with a success/failure message.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

I thought you were OK now.

Can you post your control cards, JCL, sysout from the step and let us know exactly what is wrong, please?
