Summary:

Attempt to write to an existing record

Cause:

A write statement used the keyword REC for an existing record rather than for a deleted record; writing to an existing record is not allowed.

Remedy:

Correct the WRITE statement that caused the error. To specify a record that has not been deleted, remove the REC= clause and write to the end of the file or use REWRITE to overwrite the existing record.
