Group Format Errors

Is there any rational explanation for the creation of Group Format errors in the following situation.

A single user Arev system used as a Point of Sale Terminal is the ONLY system to WRITE to a linear hash file.

A second single user system will occasionally access data from the POS terminal via READO commands to sum the current transactions. Connection to the POS is via SETALIAS.

On occasions a GFE is reported on the POS terminal.

I would have thought that GFE's could be caused ONLY by the writing of data and not by READ ONLY reading of data.

Anybody with any ideas????
