what about posting the full message log with the message identifier

a techically correct but useless answer (*) would be ...
search the meaning of the u3500 abend and the 0008bc error code
for Your environment

from here it could be anything

(*) for somebody not willing to help himself

The U prefix means user abend -- not a system problem. Is this a utility such as sort you're running, an application program in some language, or what? With as little as you've given us, it's very difficult to know what could cause the error, much less how to fix it.

As Robert says, Unnnn abends are generated by the application program except in the case of IMS. They have a range of Unnnn messages.
