M204.1234  Adding too many occurrences of token

You tried to add too many occurrences to a field whose definition includes the OCCURS n attribute. For example, a field was defined with the OCCURS 6 clause, the current record already has six occurrences, and you tried to add a seventh occurrence.

Response: A REDEFINE command cannot change the number of occurrences after data has been put in the file. If a reorganization is required, contact your file manager.

File manager response: Reorganize the file, defining the field with a larger number of occurrences.
