This article describes how to resolve a vision file error 98,20.

Problem:

Vision files are portable, but if they are transferred in ASCII mode you will receive a 98,20 error when the program is run. Example:

$runcbl custrpt.acu  
File error 98,20 on custfile.dat 
COBOL error at 000016 in custrpt.acu 
 <Ok> 
File Status 98:Indexed file corrupt. 
An internal error has been detected in the indexed file. 
The secondary status code contains the internal error number 20 Non-zero key prefix on first key in node

Resolution:

Switch the transfer mode to binary and re-transfer the files.
