B021 - Array occurences limit

Postby deepu_1156 » Tue Jun 02, 2009 6:03 am

I declared the following array in an easytrieve program,
WS-TBL1 W 10 A OCCURS 50000
WS-ITEM WS-TBL1 05 A
WS-STORE WS-TBL1 +05 05 A
When i compile the above piece of code, Im getting the error "B021- Parameter too large". Easytrieve app. programming guide says that 32767 is the max number of elements in an array. Is there any way I can override this number either through compile/link edit options or Option table settings? I have tried giving RMODE=ANY and AMODE=31 in compilation options. Still didnt work. Im using Easytrieve version 6.4.

please give me any thoughts or pointers on this.

Thanks,
deepu

Hello and welcome to the forum,

Is there any way I can override this number either through compile/link edit options or Option table settings?
Not that i'm aware of - hence the limit.

Depending on just what is happening in the process, you might consider creating a vsam file for this or splitting the table into 2 and process the "first" half or the other half depending on the ITEM. The entries would need to be in sequence for either the 2 table approach or the vsam approach.

If this is part of a db2 app, a temporary database table might also be used.
Hope this helps,
d.sch.

Thanks a lot. We had around 50 EZT programs in which we had to increase array size to 99999. Currently, we are using Virtual files or re-writing in COBOL. I thought if we can tweak the array limit, we can reduce a lot of coding effort. Thanks again for the timely reply.
