  Main Question - Posted From Guest:
my job is trying to read a vsam file using icetool, and it is abending with a 168 error. There are alot of messages in the output, I also see a 052 error but I'm not sure what that is or if its related to soemthing after the vsam 168 error.

RD Says:
I think this error is caused by someone having a lock on your file, thats typically teh cause of a 168 error. Check to see if any other jobs are running that are using this file, wait until those jobs are completed, then you should be able to read the vsam file.

Guest Says:
the vsam 168 error code occurs on the open, someone was accessing or locking the vsam in some way for sure
