I am using a Copybook, which I have checked and rechecked for record length errors. I continue to receive a record status of '04' when running a pgm in debug. I am an RPG programmer, with limited COBOL skills - I am wondering if there is a reason, other than a field length error, that could be causing the '04' status?

Re: '04' Record Status in COBOL pgm2013-08-30T14:53:35ZThis is the accepted answer. This is the accepted answer.
Which OS are you using? Which COBOL are you using?
Check the description and length of the file you are reading.
If you are i-Series (your reference to RPG) your input is probably variable and you have a record on the file which is shorter or longer than you expect. The 04 on the Mainframe is slightly different, so we need to know your answers.
