VA FileMan Error Codes

Error 537


This error means that a certain field in a certain file has a data type of pointer, but something is wrong with the rest of the DD information needed to make that pointer work. For example, perhaps the number of the pointed-to file, which should follow the P in the second ^-piece of the field descriptor node, is missing.

Another problem would be if the global root of the pointed to file were missing from the field's definition; that should be found in the third ^-piece of the field descriptor.


Field #|FIELD| in File #|FILE| has a corrupted pointer definition.


'FILE' means File #.

'FIELD' means Field #.
