The Answer is :
You have an application error of some sort, apparently within a COBOL
Please contact the maintainer of the particular application for
further assistance. If you are maintaining the COBOL application,
further information on the particular call to SORT/MERGE is required.
It would appear that something is preventing the COBOL call to SORT
(or MERGE) from opening the output file or some intermediate file.
You can try to use the (undocumented) command:
SET WATCH/CLASS=ALL FILE
command to track down which file is failing. To disable this output,
use the command:
SET WATCH/CLASS=NONE FILE
Available SET WATCH /CLASS keywords can include the following:
ALL, NONE, MAJOR_FUNCTION, CONTROL_FUNCTION, ATTRIBUTES,
DIRECTORY_OPERATIONS, DUMP, QUOTA_OPERATIONS and PROTECTION.
CMKRNL or CMEXEC privilege is required for this command.
