    Datameer can work with a fixed length binary format that matches the copybook exactly. If the copybook is a variable length, we can support it if it contains a Record Descriptor Word (RDW); this must be enabled in FTP prior to transferring the copybook from the Mainframe with “bin quote SITE RDW”, and you usually will not be able to use Datameer to ingest the files directly from the Mainframe because Datameer’s FTP ingest cannot support sending command to the FTP host (e.g. changing directories or enabling RDW).

    If everything is formatted correctly, you shouldn't be receiving that error. If you still are, I'd recommend emailing, so that they can work directly with you on formatting and importing the file correctly.
