If VSAM, file status 42 will occur.
For non VSAM, possibly the EXCEPTION/ERROR procedure (if specified) is executed.

It would depend on the way the program was written.

You might get some file status (if provided for) or an abend.

There is also a jcl consideration. If the disp is set as old,delete, the file would be deleted. . .
