Issue/Introduction

Adding an element into Endevor getting an SMGR160E error.  The element has an LRECL of 500 but the Type definition has a Source Length value of 106 which was updated to 500.
The following error is issued when trying to add an element:
SMGR160E  INVALID SOURCE RECORD LENGTH - 00500 EXCEEDS MAXIMUM RECORD LENGTH FOR TYPE - 00259.

The LRECL of the Image/Delta file is 259.

Will changing the LRECL of the Image and Delta to 500 resolve this issue or will updating these files have a negative impact on existing inventory or shipments?   
 

 

Environment
