Hi All,

I have gone thru the previous posting " detecting ASRA" thru compiler listing but do not understand properly. Can any one let me know the compiler option to get the listing? and how to resolve it.

Regards
Shreejita

compiler option
Could you help us out a little? Are you coding in assembler, PL/I, COBOL, or C -- all are valid for CICS programs? Do you use a canned procedure for compilation? If so, please contact your site support group and find out from them the recommended way to get a compiler listing output since we do not know your site or its standards.

You are most likely moving non-numeric data to a numeric field. I would start by commenting a few move statements that do this type of action and go from there.

quoting from some IBM publication ...
Quote:
CICS issues an ASRA abend code when it detects that a program check has occurred within a transaction. Program checks can occur for a wide variety of reasons, but you can find the nature of the error from the program interrupt code in the program status word (PSW). The PSW is used by the machine hardware to record the address of the current instruction being executed, the addressing mode, and other control information. The PSW gives you the address at which the program check occurred, and so it represents a record of the circumstances of the failure.


please refrain from posting misleading replies
and unwise suggestion on random program modifications

following the proper debugging practices... using the proper documentation,
will likely solve the issue faster than using a random approach

You'll need to know the basics of IBM Assembler. If not, then you'll need to engage a knowledgeable colleague or consult the manual....
