Dave; There can be a problem with 2GB files. If they are static they will fail when a write tries to add an item that is 'hashed' over the 2GB limit.
Note: my testing has shown that there are no warnings if you create, resize, or memresize a file larger than 2GB. Additionally, unix has a ulimit that is an upper limit on file sizes. Here is a quick program that shows you the info about a file. You can use the ideas to write something that goes through your VOC looking for files that may be in trouble.... hth 001: * 002: * This will provide information about the 003: * Unidata file structure 004: * Colin Alfke 005: IF FIELD(@COMMAND,' ',2) = '' THEN 006: CRT 'ENTER FILE NAME: ': 007: INPUT FNAME 008: END ELSE 009: FNAME = OCONV(@COMMAND,'G1 99') 010: END 011: OPEN FNAME TO WORK.FILE ELSE STOP 201, FNAME 012: FT = FILEINFO(WORK.FILE,3) 013: BEGIN CASE 014: CASE FT = 2 015: FT.DESC = 'Hashed' 016: CASE FT = 3 017: FT.DESC = 'Dynamic' 018: CASE FT = 4 019: FT.DESC = 'Directory' 020: CASE FT = 5 021: FT.DESC = 'Sequential' 022: CASE FT = 8 023: FT.DESC = 'OS' 024: CASE 1 025: FT.DESC = 'other' 026: END CASE 027: CHECK.INDEX = FILEINFO(WORK.FILE,13) 028: IF CHECK.INDEX = 1 THEN 029: SECOND.INDEX = 'Yes' 030: END ELSE 031: SECOND.INDEX = 'No' 032: END 033: CRT 034: CRT 'VOC: ':FILEINFO(WORK.FILE,17) 035: CRT 'Path: ':FILEINFO(WORK.FILE,2) 036: CRT 'Type: ':FT.DESC 037: CRT 'Modulo: ':FILEINFO(WORK.FILE,5) 038: CRT 'Block Size: ':FILEINFO(WORK.FILE,8) 039: CRT 'Hash Type: ':FILEINFO(WORK.FILE,4) 040: CRT 'Alt.

I noticed that some of the files are approaching 2 gb and a couple of files are over 2 gb. Is there a future problem looming. What is the 2 gig limits mentioned in some of the email's?
