M204.0712  Value too long in recnum​=​token​,​ field​=​token2


  • token2 specifies the name of the field within the record.
  • token specifies the Model 204 record number that incurred the error.

A File Load program has encountered an attempt to update field token2, a field in the preallocated section, with a value that exceeds the defined length for token2. The update to token2 did not occur, but the File Load program continues.

File manager response: You can do one of the following:

  • Correct the FLOD program or input file.
  • Increase the size of the preallocated field which is specified in the LENGTH attribute of the field description.
  • Leave this field out of the preallocated section by not specifying the OCCURS attribute.

Note: Changes to the preallocated section requires reorganizing the file.
