how do You expect to get any help with the INEXISTENT info provided ???

all You told is that ( your understanding )
the first time the job/program fails,
the second time it works.

IPOUPDTE is an IBM provided utility... how does it fit into Your cobol program ???

we sometimes need to change IPO parameters automatically.
all of jcl lines are fixed and the parameter line (FROM and TO ) is dynamic in cobol program.

You still provided absolutely nothing helpful for the problem determination

read here about the abend, the causes, the resolution

Suggest you post the SYSOUT from the failed Job and the JCL which you see with "SJ".

Search for IEC020I 001-4 and look for reason code 4. As has been indicated, without looking at what Job you have it's tough to give any direction.

Hello,

Quote:
IEC020I 001-4,IPOUPDTE,STEPIOPU,SYSIN ,JES

This is possibly a wrong length record.

What are the attributes of the STSIN dataset in the problem step?

You should post what was submitted along with the info generated.

Dick, I think this is a

//SYSIN DD *

type data set, not a data set built in a previous step. Note the JES in the message.

Hi Steve,

Very possibly inline somehow.
But if it is, Not sure how it would have a wrong length record.

May help if we knew how the COBOL code generated the JCL . . .

Agreed. This is somewhat confusing
