Hi All,

Can anyone give some idea how to catch the abend easily and is there any short-cut to find out the error if there is any abend.?

Thanks,
Vignesh.

Hello,

Simply look at the output in the spool. Depending on the problem there should be some information in the first or third spooled output file.

If there was an abend, there may also be one or more dump outputs in the spooled output.

You can use IF/THEN/ENDIF or COND=ONLY to execute a special step in case of abend.
This step can send a message, for example.

There can not a be general statement for such a question, I believe. You may get a user-abend or a system-abend. One possible thought on this, as Pete points to, can be, to look at the RC of the STEP and then take a decision on whether that RC is in permissible range or not but then what if there were many more steps which were not executed due to abend in 2nd step - how would you make sure that 4th step won't abend on a restart now...

Case is worse if one starts thinking about System-abends...

Why not you start over and tell us, what exactly coined out such a question -- it's something like asking why road accidents happen? How can we stop them - well, you need to do a statistical analysis (all the probable abends) of the area (your shop) for the reasons-causing-accidents (your site-standards, what kind of shop is that, what is available what is not etc.) to come-up with a plan to pretend them in future.

it might occur more often that the ABEND will catch YOU easily, rather than the other way around icon_biggrin.gif
