Hi all,

can anyone tell what's the use of Error Option? If we specify EROPT=ABE in DCB parameter,where can we view the result? What type of results it will be?

Thanks in advance.

Hi ,

EROPT ? Specifies what action to take if an unrecoverable I/O error occurs while reading or writing a block.

ABE ? Cause an ABEND failure (S001-1).

SKP ? Skip the block containing the error.

ACC ? Accept the block containing the error

The default is ABE.

We can view this result in Job listing. The result may be if we are trying to read data on bad blocks this abend will occur. The data in that block, may not be recovered. For this it is better to use SKP to skip the error.

Regards,
Mike.

hi frnd,

EROPT=x

QSAM: Specifies the option to be executed if an error occurs in reading
or writing a record.

x=ACC System is to accept the block causing the error.
x=SKP System is to skip the block causing the error.
x=ABE System is to cause abnormal end of task.
Default: ABE


Note: Do not code the EROPT subparameter with DD parameters
DDNAME, QNAME.
