Introduction:

Receive Insufficient memory or have Space problems using COBOL 5.x or 6.x. 

Background:

Summary:

Large programs or programs set for debug may have space or insufficient memory problems when using COBOL 5.x or 6.x.  COBOL 5.x or 6.x uses 16 temporary datasets for which any one of them can run out of space. 

Environment:
z/OS
Instructions:

Instructions:

To resolve in Gen, run in the background and set the Region SIZE=0M, then add the following JCL card in the job step:

//TICCIN DD SPACE=(CYL,(150,20),RLSE)

If the job continues to fail, create and use a LISTING dataset to capture the error message.  

If you see TICUT5 in the error, add the following:

//TICCIN DD SPACE=(CYL,(150,20),RLSE)

//TICUT5 DD SPACE=(CYL,(150,20),RLSE)

If it should fail again and you see TICUT7 in the error, add the following:

//TICCIN DD SPACE=(CYL,(150,20),RLSE)

//TICUT5 DD SPACE=(CYL,(150,20),RLSE)

//TICUT7 DD SPACE=(CYL,(150,20),RLSE)

Continue this process until the module is successful.
