Issue/Introduction

 Receiving this error under release 11.6 in compatibility mode:

         A023 VFM SPACE ALLOCATION EXCEEDED   

 When is adding an //EZTVFM DD statement needed to resolve this?

 

Environment

CA Easytrieve Report Generator, release 11.6, running in compatibility mode

Resolution

The A023 error is occurring because the VFM space allocation has been exceeded.

It is good practice and is definitely recommended to include the //EZTVFM DD statement when files are being sorted, a SEQUENCE statement is coded, or when there are multiple files involved.  This will prevent the jobs from encountering the A023 error by preventing and ensuring that the VFM space is never exceeded.
