COBCH0205 RECORD missing or has zero size

You have declared a file using the SELECT statement in the Environment Division of your program, but have either failed to define it in a corresponding FD entry in the Data Division or have used a different filename in the FD entry, perhaps owing to a spelling mistake. If a mismatch of the two occurs then the record associated with the file does not exist although the necessary space has been created for it.


Add or revise the FD entry.
