While trying to define a COMPOOL record for CA Dynam/D, CACCDBU0 may terminate with the error message CACI406E KEYWORD OPERAND TOO LONG - MEMBERS! How can we get around this?


The best solution is to break up the MEMBERS list and do the DEFINE in 2 steps, using DUPREC(APPEND) to add to the new record.

See the CA Dynam for VSE System Programming Guide, Chapter 2 for the limitation; Each ALTER and/or DEFINE statement can be followed by a maximum of 10 lines. If more lines are desired for keyword (operand) combinations, you must repeat the ALTER recordtype CPU(c) command or, if you are doing a Define, after the initial Define recordtype CPU(c) command with its 10 lines, enter an ALTER recordtype CPU(c) command and follow it with a maximum of 10 lines. Repeat as necessary.
