Resolving RMS file access (FAC) failure?

» close window

The Question is:

How do I remedy this error?
%DBL-E-FILOPT, An invalid operation for file type
-RMS-F-FAC, record operation not permitted by specified file access (FAC)
-DBL-I-ERTEXT, Failure on record deletion
File was opened with U:I  I did an analysis on the file, I can't see where it
 says...don't let
anyone delete records.  I looked in the online documentation, with no results.
 This is probably something dumb, but I really would like help.

The Answer is :

  It would appear that the file was not opened for write or for deletion
  access.  The requested file access is generally specified as part of the
  language-specific file-open statement -- and then passed to RMS by the
  language-specific run-time, or is established via the setting of the
  FAB file access (FAC) field if RMS is being directly called by the
  application program.
