Invalid block size error

Invalid block size error

(OP)
HI,

Could you please share me the rexx code to create a new dataset and write data to thru rexx.

Example: I want to create new data set file and write "HI" to it.

Thanks.

RE: Invalid block size error

(OP)
I tried using the below code.
SYSIND = XXXX.XXX.FILE'
CALL MSG('OFF')
"ALLOC FI(SYSIND) DA('"SYSIND"') NEW UNIT(SYSDA)",
"SP(1,1) CYLINDER DSORG(PS)",
"DIR(0) BLKSIZE(27500)",
"LRECL(80) RECFM(F B) REUSE"
ADDRESS TSO "EXECIO * DISKW SYSIND (FINIS STEM O."

WHEN I TRY TO OPEN THE FILE, I AM GETTING "Invalid Block Size" error.

Please help me in resolving the error.

RE: Invalid block size error

The blocksize that you specified is not a multiple of the record length. Before starting to write Rexx programs I suggest you learn the basics of z/OS data sets. In addition, you shuld allow the system to determine your blocksize. You do this by coding BLKSIZE(0).
