In our system recently one job abended with Return code 97. We ran VERIFY for a particular VSAM file and restarted the job. Again the job abended in the same step with RC 97 for another file. Is there any way to find out the file list for which we need to run the VERIFY statement?

Verify only needs to be run once. COBOL runs it if needed when opening the file. Whoever told you to run it twice to open and close the file properly either did not know what they're talking about or was playing a joke on you.
