While trying to a Type definition for type CNTL the error ENBE169E is being issued. The type def definition has the source element length as 255. The source output file is defined as record length of 255. Why can this be happening?
Check the record format. If it is V or VB the record length must account for the RDW. The RDW is a 4 bite field that must be added to the record length for RECFM=V or RECFM=VB files.
The source element length can be defined as 255. If the source output file is RECFM=V or VB then the source output file must be LRECL=259.
