M204.0602 File is in use
You are executing a command or SOUL request that will read or update a Model 204 file. Your attempt to access the file conflicts with the activities of other users of the file. Certain file operations require exclusive access to the file. These operations include the INITIALIZE, REDEFINE, DELETE FIELD, INCREASE, DECREASE, DUMP, RESTORE, and RESET fileParameter commands.
While the operations are in progress, no other user may access the file. Also, the operations cannot begin as long as other users are accessing the file. In the case of the RESET command, this message is accompanied by:
M204.1236: PARAMETER parameter NOT RESET
For the other commands, this message is accompanied by the prompt:
M204.1076: DO YOU REALLY WANT TO TRY AGAIN?
Situations involving the application subsystem in which this error can happen are as follows:
- An attempt to store a procedure which you have been editing and that the subsystem has locked.
- An attempt to access a file which conflicts with the activities of other users of the file. The subsystem uses the default response of
Y to attempt to access the file again or respond
N to quit.
Many commands listed above can take a long time to complete. Interactive use of the commands against large files is not recommended.
