M204.1707  Sort​/​hash key must be first field loaded into new record

The X'8000' mode bit has been set on a file load control statement to indicate that the field being loaded should begin a new record. The file being loaded is sorted or hashed and the field being loaded is not the sort/hash key.

  • If the file is defined as sort/hash key required (FILEORG X'02' bit is on), the sort/hash key must begin each new record.
  • If the file is defined as sort/hash key not required (FILEORG X'02' bit is off), each record must begin with the sort/hash key, or, if the sort/hash key will be omitted from the record, the field that begins the record must be loaded with the additional mode bit X'2000'.

File manager response: Correct the fast load control statements, and resubmit the job.

System manager response: Contact the file manager.

Operator response: Contact the file manager.
