I found the below details in JESMSGLG and can any one provide your inputs to identify the issue. Correspnding program is assembler and I don't have any idea on this program. This is an existing module and did not undergo any change in the recent past.

SYSTEM COMPLETION CODE=0C1 REASON CODE=00000001
TIME=15.00.53 SEQ=39177 CPU=0000 ASID=00B2
PSW AT TIME OF ERROR 478D2000 000FABBE ILC 6 INTC 01
ACTIVE LOAD MODULE ADDRESS=000079B0 OFFSET=000

Hello,

Most likely the code has attempted to execute something that is not an instruction . . .

Using the abend info, find the problem instruction and then look at what is being attempted.

The code may have modified an address incorrectly (by incrementing or by having an invalid value being used). The code may have branched or fallen thru to some non-instruction.

Without the info at hand, it will take longer to diagnose. If there is no one who knows some assembler, this complicates things.

While the code may not have changed, what about a jcl change, a parameter change, or some change to the data content that required a code change that was not made?

You subject says S978, yet you show S0C1. Sometimes "ripple" abends will occur, it will be the first one, the S978, that you need to look at. Unless your subject is just wrong.
