Sometimes a file must be closed before another Open or other operation can occur. This error has the following causes and solutions:
- A sequential-output mode Open statement was executed for a file that is already open.
You must close a file opened for one type of sequential access before opening it for another. For example, you must close a file opened for Input before opening it for Output.
- A statement, for example, Kill, SetAttr, or Name, refers to an open file.
Close the file before executing the statement.
