Run number too big (SRTNAM)

Last Published: April 25, 2020

Solution or Workaround


LIBRARIAN INSERT returns the following

run number too big (STRNAM)
exceeding 9999 run files during insert.


INSERT creates temporary run files to sort the arc segments. ArcInfo can handle up to 9999 temporary files.


Option 1:
Generalize the input coverage. This may reduce the number for temporary files.

Option 2:
Split the coverage into smaller coverages. Then INSERT the smaller coverages into the library.
