User abend u need to handle... for eg: when ur giving a GU call to some IMS Database, if the calls fails then in the else part u can handle this user abend by calling abend routines and move necessary values to Data areas. so when u see the dumps after abending it will give more details.. in general every company as per the standards user abend must handle....

Thank u expat for ur useful answer.
Ramesh, user abend starts with U, ok. But my question is how will u define / explain user abend?
Expat, how will u relate ur definition with U4038/U0012... Can u please answer to this? 'If any given condition, move 4038 to the field name'? is this the procedure?
Already u gave me valuable info. Please ans also to the above question.
