File Status 9/161 when opening a file with CALL 'EXTFH'

[Migrated content. Thread originally posted on 04 February 2011]

In order to bind ISAM data to ADO controls, we have set up a trial project in Visual Cobol R3 that uses the Microfocus File Handler (we also use this in our NetExpress 4.0 projects).
Opening a file with call 'EXTFH' returns a file status 9/161 (something wrong with the file header?).
When running the same code in NetExpress, this returns a file status zero (which is ok).
Does someone know what might be the solution to this problem?

  • We have tried to open a file using the EXTFH, but it doesn't work.
    We have tried to open the same file NOT using the EXTFH and that appears to be succesfull.
    Can someone please review my small project and find out why de EXTFH keeps returning a file status 9/161?
    (I will send you the entire project including the file to be opened).

    Thank you in advance for any help that you can provide.
