Can anyone please tell me the actual VMS command PRO-IV uses when accessing a file? We are on open VMS 7.3-2 and Pro-IV 5.5 Rev 3.0.8 and experiencing new file access problems intermittently. The system has not been modified in anyway - Kernel, Hardware etc, but the error has just started to appear for some reason.

I can't remember the specific command it executes for each file mode.

It is always 'ERROR IN OPENING FILE - FILENAME (10014)'. I know 10014 says it is to do with Virtual address but the file exists and is generally accessible.

This has happened on random files and the files are in various modes, L,A,D etc.

10014 isn't a VMS error or anything to do with addressing. It's a ProIV 'portable' error and it means "Record or File is Locked". See the 5.5 Environmment Guide (search the PDF, may not be in VMS section..)

Assuming you're talking about accessing an RMS file, there is no VMS commmand involved. The kernel is written in C and will use the C API to RMS (eg: http://h71000.www7.h...ofile_009.html)

Nothing's as simple as you think
