Please post the output showing the abend messages. S213 can be caused by a number of things, so until we see what you see, we can not help.

Have you looked in the messages and codes manuals to see what the abend code means ?

A S213-04 abend is caused by the disk dataset you are attempting to READ being unavailable. It can be caused by specifying the VOLSER that a dataset resides on and it is NOT on that volume. It can also be caused by the master catalogue. If the master catalogue indicates the dataset is on a specific VOLSER, the job runs, looks to the VOLSER for the dataset, and it's not there.

Hello,

If you post your jcl and the part of the first JES sysout file that is for this step, we will be better able to offer suggestions.

These are a few possible reasons for S213 Abend

S213 DSCB not found; I/O error in reading or writing DSCB. Possible causes:
the data set is not the specified volume
DISP=MOD is not compatible with a volume reference
incorrect tape positioning.
S213-04 An I/O error occurred reading the FORMAT 1 DSCB, or the FORMAT 1 DSCB could not be found on the first volume specified by the DD statement volume serial field.
S213-08 An OPEN macro was issued for a password protected dataset but the system was unable to locate the password dataset.
S213-0C An I/O error occurred reading a FORMAT 1 DSCB for a direct or indexed sequential dataset, or the FORMAT 1 DSCB could not be found on the volume specified by the DD statement.
S213-18 An I/O error occurred writing back a FORMAT 1 DSCB.
S213-20 During an open, a volume contained more than 16 extends of the indicated dataset. Try browsing or editing the file via SPF 3.4. Check the upper right-most corner of the ISPF panel for an indicator message.
S213-28 An OPEN macro ws issued for a direct access dataset specifying UNIT=SYSDA, but the UNIT already contained 127 users, whcih is the maximum allowed.
