I need to abend a job based on the return code from some of the previous steps. So how can I call an abend routine direclt from jcl by checking the return code from some previous steps.

Just curious to know why do you need to abend a job when you can bypass particular step(s) in a job based on the return-code(s) from previous steps.

Thanks,
Arun

Hi,

Based on the return code of previous step, code a step to call a program that is not actually present in your library. It will cause S804 abend. I'm not sure that this is a standardized way of creating an abend.

S.Selvakumar,

S804 would only occur if a module was invoked.

you should have said S806

Many shops have an in house version of a program that calls the abend macro and displays a user code. Easy way to halt scheduled group of jobs.

It is at the very top of every page for this web site. It is white letters on gray background. Click on 'IBM Manuals'

Or you can look here: www-03.ibm.com/systems/z/os/zos/bkserv/r10pdf/

Hello,

This also provides for generating a User abend (Unnnn) rather than forcing some phony system abend (Snnn). The result is the same (an abend), but User abends are far more managable.

Hi,

All the suggestions so far talk about a CALLable abend-routine, I was also using the same concept but now I got little curious - do we have any such utility/CALLable routine which can be executed right away in JCL instead of CALLing via a program written in some programming language.
