In a tape to tape scenario (Input and Output both assigned to TAPE (VT) ), it seems as if Easytrieve is trying to write to logical unit SYS000, when SYS000 is being used as input. Is it possible to define more than one tape logical unit? 

If I make either the input file, or the output file DISK, the program works.
