Hi,

Why do we need Return code and Abend code?
Whats the Difference between return and abend Code?

My Understanding:

Return Code: It gives status of program(say 0 means normal execution)

Abend Code:Gives Specific types of error.

Please let me know if i'm correct or not?

We need Return Code & Abend Code in order to find out the status of a completed step or of a job.

Return Code gives you the status of executed step while Abend Code gives you the reason for what the step failed.

In short, you may or may not get Abend Code for a step But you'll get a Return Code for one.
