Hi Guys

Very basic question but need to clear my doubt.

I believe if job is having 10 steps and if it abends at 5th step and rest of 5 more steps will not execute and will get flushed.

My confusion is if 5th step CC is 8 or 12 or 16 , then what would be the processing of next 5 steps. Will they execute or will flushed? When I ran in my Jcl , Steps were executed .

Also my question is if CC> 0 then would it mean abend and abnormal termination?

Regards

This is a question for the beginners' forum, not the experts' forum.

There is a difference between abend and cond code settings. Check the JCL reference for cond codes including behaviours when COND=EVEN and COND=ONLY are tested.

Thanks Garry for the response. I am aware of even and only concept. I was in doubt that cc = 16 is abnormal termination.

Maybe you didn't put any COND parameter to jobcard or step. So even if the 5th step is CC = 16, succeeding step still run.

The seting of a cond code is normal behaviour and is used to indicqate a particular expected circumstance, so is not abnormal termination. It might indicate an unwanted condition but one where analysis is straight-forward.

An abend is abnormal termination - the term is derived from abnormal-end.
