NAT0061 subcode 7 FIND with superdescriptor containing field from periodic group


Product/components used and version/fix level:

Detailed explanation of the problem:

We have several environments (Development / test / user acceptance test / Production) on some of the environments FIND works fine and on other I get an error.



Error messages / full error message screenshot / log file:

XDKEB-OP 2190 NAT3061 Error in search/value buffer. DB/FNR/Subcode 21/216/7.

Question related to a free trial, or to a production (customer) instance?


There is a wide range of possible causes for a subcode 7, are you sure the FDT matches the DDM on the environment(s) where it fails ?

Now it does, and the problem is solved.


First explanation was that the file was empty. It was but adding records didn’t help, so DBA had to look elsewhere.
Field ROLLE-TYPE-FFNR was not defined as a ‘Descriptor’ in FDT and I could only see the DDM that looked fine.

FDT problem. Issue solved.
