Tech Tip: CA IDMS Where are the VSAM return codes in error message DC205006?

Discussion created by baije01 Employee on Apr 11, 2017

Question:

When using native VSAM files, if there are any VSAM errors, these are displayed in error message DC205006:

DC205006 NVSAM ERR - program-name FDBK=feedback-code R15=vsam-return-code
NVST=status-code R0=vsam-reg0-code NVERR=nverr-code DDN=file-ddname AREA=area-name SET=set-name

The DC205006 message description in https://docops.ca.com indicates the VSAM feedback-code, vsam-return-code, and vsam-reg0-code are documented in the appropriate VSAM manual.

What IBM manual contains these VSAM codes?

 

Answer:

The VSAM codes are documented in the section VSAM Macro Return and Reason Codes in the manual z/OS DFSMS Macro Instructions for Data Sets. 

Here is a link to it in the IBM Knowledge Center:
