Hi all,

Please find the Questions i have faced.

1) Can we refer all the GDG versions in a single step?

2) S322--> I told this abend is due to Timeout error. they have asked me what all are the other situations under which i have faced and how to rectify that?

3) In Cobol+Db2 program, i am going to alter the table to add a new column. What all are the necessary steps u need to take and how will u ensure that that column will be pointing at the end?

4)File Status - FS--it should be pic x(02). If i am giving 9(02) will it go fine? if not what abend will u get?

Could u please let me know reg this?

Explanation: One of the following occurred:

o The system took a longer time to run a job, job step, or procedure
than the time specified in one of the following:

- The TIME parameter of the EXEC or JOB statement

- The standard time limit specified in the job entry subsystem

o For a started task under the master subsystem, the TIME parameter was
not specified on the PROC statement of the catalogued procedure, and
the PPT entry did not indicate a system task

Application Programmer Response: If the TIME parameter was not specified
on the PROC statement of the catalogued procedure, add the TIME parameter
or add a PPT entry for the PGM parameter. Otherwise, check for program
errors. If none exist, specify a longer time in the TIME parameter. Then
run the job again.

u can also change the Class Parameter to Long Running Job, otherwise TIME=1390 can be used to say infinite time will be taken to finish the job.

Regards,
Mani

Hi,

we can use all GDG Versions in a single step, but if ur mentioning like

GDG(0) - Base Version
GDG(+1) - (Base + 1 ) Version
GDG(+3) - (Base + 3) Version not (Base + 1 + 3) Version

Regards,
Mani

Hi,

usually we will declare File status as Pic 99 only. so it wont cause any abend.
