I'm getting an error during execution on an open statement. There are two files and the first does exist while the second does not. 
The code segment follows:
C:\Users\Brooks\Desktop\Stats\Stats.txt
C:\Users\Brooks\Desktop\Stats\PRN.dat

forrtl: severe (29): file not found, unit 3, file \\.\PRN
Image              PC        Routine            Line        Source

ntdll.dll          77B64AE7  Unknown               Unknown  Unknown

Code Segment:

    fName1 = "C:\Users\Brooks\Desktop\Stats\Stats.txt"
    write(6,*) fName1
    open (unit=2,file=fName1,status='REPLACE',form='FORMATTED',action="WRITE")
    rewind 2
    fName2 = "C:\Users\Brooks\Desktop\Stats\PRN.dat"
    write(6,*) fName2
    open (unit=3,file=fName2,status='REPLACE',form='FORMATTED',action="WRITE")  <=== Line 51

 

When status="REPLACE" I thought if the file does not exist then it creates one; but it bombs me out instead.

Thanks,

Brooks

PRN, LPT, COM1, COM2, CON are examples of special files, which are tied to devices with specific properties. You cannot have a file name that clashes with these dedicated names.

I'm running Win 10 x64 on an Intel i7 with 32GB RAM and 1 TB disk.
