Truncating last three characters in Mainfram GDG dataset.

Hi Folks,

I had developed a scenario IDOC - > XI -> File and this file is generated on Mainframe system as a GDG dataset . I was able to generate the file but last three characters are getting truncated for each record in the file(dataset). From XI we are sending them correctly but on Mainframe system these last three characters are getting truncated.

For generating a file i.e. GDG dataset on Mainframe system I am using Fixed field lengths, my record length is of 254, and I am not missing any of the field length in fixed field lengths.

When I use BINARY format I am able to get the complete record but in TEXT format I am unable to have the last three characters in a record.

Is there any record size restrictions to 255 in Mainframe GDG dataset while generating the dataset ? If so, how can we overcome this situation?

Please help me....

Thanks,

Vijay.
