SORTSPACE

The amount of memory to be allocated to internal workspace for SORT operations. This can be specified in different formats: for example, you could specify 64M, 2G, and 1000000 to give sort memory areas of 64 Megabytes, 2 Gigabytes and 1000000 bytes respectively.

The Net Express 4.0 Help (All06n40.exe WrapPack) is the best source for these error message descriptions. The Net Express 3.0 Help is incomplete and the Net Express 3.1 Help is corrupted.
