Hi Mainframers can you help me with this abend?
FST002:004:NO EXISTING RECORD**(23) FILE:DSCREG RET. 08 FUNC 0 FDBK 004
FST002:020 *** JOB ABORTED - PSW059
*** FILE KEY = SPACES
*** ACTION = START

What does this mean and how do we solve this abend?

This is a custom message from an application, so for guaranteed results you need to consult with the person supporting the application. However, from the messages it appears that the COBOL program got a file status 23 (record not found) while doing a START on a key of all spaces.

I would start by checking to see if the file got deleted and redefined before the program ran, and possibly had a problem reloading the data. The fact that the program is aborting due to failure of a START on space says there's an expectation in the program of having the START succeed.

First Try

TSO VERIFY DATASET ' VSAM NAME' you are trying to access. If you dont get any error there it means the problem area is not in the VSAM catalouge.

If it gives you any RC> 0 then check If it is empty and indexes are not built , i used to get this error. usually copying a dummy record in this file works.
