as you are new to DB2
you don't have ABENDs in DB2; SQL failures are reported as negative SQLCODEs
there is no top twenty. It all depends on how diligent you are with your syntax and attention to detail
The link that raviprasath_kp gave you is a list of all negative SQLCODEs for vsn 5 of DB2 for OS390. Depending upon the vsn of DB2 and the operating system that is running in your shop, you need to either bookmark or download the appropriate Message and Codes manual for your DB2 vsn. This link displays a list of Messages and Codes for all of IBM's products. i.e. DB2, MQS, CICS, etc....

SQLCODE -911 has to be near the top of the list.
deadlocks, timeouts, techniques used to avoid them could fill a book.
SQLCODE -805 ranks up near the top.
We have a document that deals exclusively with all the different situations that can trigger an SQLCODE -805.
Mastering the issues behind -911 and -805 will take you far more time than all the other nasty SQLCODEs combined.
The only abend I can think of is AD2Z which happens when DB2 attempts to issue an automatic SYNCPOINT ROLLBACK in response to SQLCODE -911 while executing in CICS DPL subset. SYNCPOINT ROLLBACK is not allowed in DPL subset...
If your CICS applications don't not issue LINKs to remote regions then you'll never see AD2Z...
