hi, im getting error like this when i try to write into a ESDS VSAM file. "A file attribute mismatch was detected. File OUTFILE in program FILEOP  was defined as a physical sequential  file and the file specified in the ASSIGN clause was a VSAM data set". pls tell me, what should be the content of ENVIRONMENT DIVISION. FILE SECTION

Guest Says:
Anytime you get that 39 error then you have a problem with file definitions, so either you are giving it a file that really isn't a vsam, or the file lengths are not correct, and what you have specified in the program isn't matching, isnt the correct file length, etc.  This is a common error
