is TRUE if any of the previous steps abended. As you know, normally the remainder of the job is flushed when an abend condition occurs. Typically, that's what's desired. However, there are times when you may want to continue execution of the subsequent steps even if an abend occurs, as in your case.
... if Condition code > zero then ABEND = True?
No. That just means that the Return-Code register was set by a program to contain a value higher than zero. ABEND is still FALSE.
