The R2CMQA copybook has significantly increased in size for recent MQ releases. If you follow the directions (page 18) you may receive an error trying to assemble MQR2C using the Websphere MQ for z/OS version 5.3 R2CMQA macro that was modified with the PREPCMQA edit macro. The error is similar to:

** ASMA034E Operand TABLEEND beyond active USING range by 1771 bytes
** ASMA435I Record 68 in MQDEV.MA10.SOURCE(MQR2C) on volume: MDMQSA

To circumvent this problem, add/change the following code in the MQR2C source code:
Lines added (after line "LA R10,2048(R10)" ):

LR R9,R10
LA R9,2048(R9)
LA R9,2048(R9)

Line updated (added ",R9" to end of line):
USING MQR2C,R12,R11,R10,R9
