M204.1232  Value cannot be converted for preallocated field token

A SOUL request or a host language or FLOD program has attempted to store an incompressible value in a FLOAT or BINARY preallocated field. Refer to Storing values in preallocated fields, Preallocated fields (OCCURS attribute), or Compression violations for a description of the range and format of numbers that can be stored in FLOAT and BINARY preallocated fields.

Response: Correct your request or program to store a compressible value, use a different field, or contact your file manager.

File manager response: A field with OCCURS, BINARY, and CODED as attributes will avoid this problem in the future. Next time you reorganize the file, add CODED to the BINARY preallocated fields.
