Hi,

I am trying to test an already existing program in production. However, in the test runs I am getting U0476 abend.

Could this be because my PSBs are not the correct version?

Thanks.

Check your test PSB library. If the program was moved into production, they have removed it from the test libraries.

0476 means a DL/I call does not include a valid PCB address. For your case, if the PSB is alreay in library compare it with production PSB.

This abend can be the result of an improperly assembled or generated application program as well. So with the information in hand, one can say, correct the application program DL/I call statements.

Are any loads (not pgm loads) moved to new version of compiler and the pgm loads in production are still on old compiler version. This may cause 0476 abend to occur because of non-alignment. See that even the application pgms are link-edited with the newly compiled loads(not pgm loads)?
