Re: VAX - DCL Execution - Error Code 99812

$ exit 99812
%RMS-F-NEF, not positioned to EOF on $PUT (sequential organization only)

$ help/message NEF
NEF, not positioned to EOF on $PUT (sequential organization only)

Facility: RMS, OpenVMS Record Management Services

Explanation: An RMS $PUT request is attempted for a sequential file that is
not currently positioned at the end of the file.

User Action: Verify that the call to the RMS file system service is
programmed correctly. Modify your program, if necessary, to
detect and respond to the condition.

_TNA4:write sys$output "''f$message("99812")"
%RMS-F-NEF, not positioned to EOF on $PUT (sequential organization only)
(to write to a sequential file that has been opened as /read/write you must be positioned at the end, open /append will position you at the eof)

Sunil,

Where is the error code coming from? Is it the result of a specific command? I'm wondering how or where you're getting a number that isn't being automatically translated into a message.
