The Question is:
Is there anyway around this error? I know that it is because the record format
is Variable Length.. Also, what is really throwing me off is that it says
'maximum 0 bytes, longest 0 bytes'. This of course if not accurate.. or I
wouldn't get the error.
Any advice you can give would be appreciated!

The Answer is :
If the problem persists after having applied the current ECO
and/or moved to the current release (V5.3, as of this writing),
please contact the support center. Expect to be asked details
of the input file including an analysis, and details of the
target server. You may also be asked to apply the available
mandatory ECO kits for OpenVMS, as well.
The longest record length is effectively a hint, and the value
is unforunately not necessarily accurate. The CRTL has seen
some changes in this area as previous values written by C were
causing problems with tools, and applications writing files
using C should apply the current C RTL ECO kit. It is also
potentially not involved here, as this initially appears
specific to a block within the input file.
Also please consider using the DCL command COPY/FTP. It is
far easier, and for many reasons.
