M204.0189  File is not sorted

An SFL$ or SFGE$ clause is found in a Find statement or in the selection specification of the IFFIND function. Because a non-sorted file is opened as the default file, the clause is illegal. In SOUL, compilation continues but the request is not executed. IFFIND returns a return code of 4.

Response: Do one of the following:

  • Make a single sorted file the default and retry.
  • Change the Find statement or IFFIND argument that produced the error.
  • Have the file manager recreate the file as a sorted file.

File manager response: Consider recreating and re initializing this file as a sorted file.
