It is possible, but you should consider removing PEs/MUs
The problem that you are experiencing is the compressed record doesn't fit into the data storage block size. It has been many years since I worked with ADABAS, but there is a utility that the DBA can use to increase the blocksize of data storage, but when this is done, this can potentially affect database performance either positively or negatively. It would take benchmarking to determine what effect the larger blocksize would have. This is why they have recommended you remove some of your PEs or MUs. When you remove them, the record will be reduced in size and most likely fit into the block. Or if you can't remove the PEs or MUs, they can increase the blocksize and your record will fit in the block, but all other users of the database will also be using this larger blocksize, and they may not like this happening just for your application. Hope this helps. Jim D.
