Error when running a report writer


I am getting an error ("Internal error: More than 999 GREP blocks were requested") when running a report writer.

The error diagnosis is:


Internal error: More than 999 GREP blocks were requested

Message no. GR 215


An internal error occurred in the Report Writer.

When running the program, you selected the option to store your results

permanently. However, when the selected data was stored in blocks in

the GREP file, the maximum number of blocks was exceeded.

System Response

The selection program was terminated.


Inform your system administrator.

You may have to increase the block size for the GREP blocks.


Anybody knows how to increase the size of GREP blocks?

Thanks in advance.
