The 06FEB2009 OpenCOBOL 1.1 Programmer's Guide (available from has a listing of the various FILE STATUS codes and their meanings in Section 4.2.1 (the FILE-CONTROL paragraph discussion).  Some of the explanations are - admittedly - a little vague.

Hi Everyone

I have been reading my Cobol books but now I need to start practicing
writing programs. I am making lots of stupid mistakes and working
through them and learning.

I have encountered one:
libcob: WRITE not allowed (STATUS = 48) File : 'foo.file'

and I need a better description of the error code to figure out what I
did wrong. This does not appear to be in the user manual or in Gary's
book. Is there a list of error codes somewhere?
