if You pass by a bank and see a robbery going on...

handle ==> call the police
ignore ==> just keep driving

handle ==> do something appropriate
ignore ==> do nothing ( you do not care )

The difference is in how the application is written -- for example, if a code is input from a screen, your program may want to look up a narrative for that code in a VSAM file. However, if the code isn't found in the file your program can still continue without the narrative -- so you code IGNORE CONDITION for the not found on the read. If your program cannot continue unless that code is found in the file, code the HANDLE CONDITION to process the not found condition.
