Hi,

One of my production job abended with S0C7 code in a job step, due to the presence of a blank record in the input file. The file with the blank record, is actually created in a simple COBBAT program (say PGMA) executed in a predecessor job.

When I executed PGMA (from production load library) in our test system using the same production data, the output file did not have the blank record. Instead, it had a valid record. However, I get a blank record when I tested it in production.

I could not figure out why I get one of the records as a blank record only when i execute the program in production.
Please advise.

Hi Sriram,

You will have to provide more information than what you have posted so far... especially about PGMA program.
You said you ran with the same production data... Could you elaborate on this.. meaning whether the i/p is a table or file or something else...

As mentioned.. your post so far is very vague, atleast to me... icon_razz.gif , to help you on this...
So could you give more info without disclsoing any proprietary info... icon_wink.gif

Oops. Sorry about that.

There are actually 2 input files (1 VSAM & 1 flat file) used in PGMA. There are no tables used in the program.

There are about 941416 records in the input flat file and 150 records in the input VSAM file. In production, the output file created is having 60754 records with a blank record in 60751.

The file created in test system also has 60754 records. On comparison of files created in test & prod, I get only one difference which is the blank record in the file created in prod.

Hi,

The program was compiled and moved to production long back, and there was actually some problem with the production load.
I just compiled the program again and moved the load module to production. Now, i do not get any blank record.

I should have done that earlier.
Anyway, Thanks for the time.
