Hi Nizam,

the following sounds really weared:

"Cannot allocate member BTCCTL type *FILE ."

I would suggest WRKOBJLCK on this table and find out who is using that one ... Is it possible, that anybody is doing RGZPFM on it ?

This is not a normal behaviour ...

HI Volker,

Thanks for the swift reply. But do you mean here that We have to put WORK OBJECT LOCK on this table? Also can you suggest me how to look for that user who has done an entry for this error to occur in the table? Would appreciate it as we know this is a very uncommon error.

Eagerly awaiting your response here.
