Hi,

My jcl is accesing a VSAM file which is created few days back.

The job is failing with S222 and showing the error I/O ERROR ECB=42 CSW=0000 SENSE=0000 RD RBN=136.

If the job is reran after deleting and creating the cluster file it wil run.But the thing is the job should be ran on the same day of creation of cluster file,otherwise it wil fail with the above return code.

Why such a strange error occurs in VSAM cluster file.

Have you used the reference manuals and seen what all of the IEC / IDC messages mean

And how do you know this? IBM computer systems are not known for lying -- if the abend code is S222, then you need to read the manual description of the error AND BELIEVE THAT DESCRIPTION.

Have you done an IDCAMS VERIFY on the VSAM file?

Post the system message log for the job.

What do you feel "C PBLT882M" might be doing in relation to S222?

Is your VSAM actually IAM? Did you look up the message?

Yes VSAM is an IAM cluster.

What you have posted to date indicates:
1) you have an IAM problem. Since IAM documentation is under copyright, unless someone responding on this forum has the product installed at their site, you will not be able to get any information from this forum on the error message.
2) if you site is licensed for IAM, YOU have access to the manuals, including the messages and codes manual. YOU need to find out how to get to the manuals (via internal web site, or vendor web site, or hard copy manuals) and look up the IAMW37 message yourself.
3) contrary to your protests, the job was cancelled, either by an operator or by your site automation package (or IAM) and thus the S222 abend.
