Run-Time System Errors

Restriction: This topic applies only when a Database Connectors license has been installed via the Micro Focus License Management System.

This topic lists the Database Connectors for MSSQL error messages that could occur during execution of your program. For information on compile-time errors and several methods for retrieving run time system errors, see the chapter Performance and Troubleshooting.

Run time system errors have this format:


The 9 indicates a file system error and is reported as the first digit of the 2-byte FILE STATUS variable. The xxx is a binary value between 1 and 255 that provides more information. If xxx is 83, you can retrieve additional information with C$RERR. That additional information can come from either the database or the run time. Run-time codes returned with C$RERR include:
