LOB File Number

How do I specify the LOB file number for a batch unload in SYSDICBE?

I’m getting this message:
DIC1971 LOB FILE NUMBER NOT DEFINED.

We’re using Predict 8.5

As the UNLOAD itself does not require a LOB file I assume this is about the LOB component of an ADABAS file to be unloaded, are you running a mass unload or do you know specifically which file it complains about ?

Thanks for answering.

It’s a single file.
The job does an unload and then a load.

Does RPC-DATASET-DATA have a LOB file linked in the database but none defined in PRE-DICT, by any chance ?

The LOB file is defined in the source Predict

Sue,
The entire message is:

LOB file number not defined.

The ‘LOB file number’ must be the physical number of a SAG-ADA-LOB file within the same database.
.
Assign a valid ‘LOB file number’ or create a SAG-ADA-LOB with the required physical file number.

Please check your file definitions to be sure the LOB file you are pointing to has been properly
