Hi this morning i got the abend S04C while i am executing a COBOL program when i checked with SAR(spool) i found the RC S04C.
I just want to know what could be the reason for this abend.
Also i want to let you know that when i rerun the same job, the job ran fine and got the output but cant find what is the reason.

Note: i am opening this topic in a new thread because in previous threads related to this topic most of them switched from S04C to S0C4. people its not S0C4 its S04C

can anyone help me by giving me the reason for occurence of this abend.

I cant give any spool information here because its a client machine which it does not have access to google even.

Also find the below information i got from google regarding this abend.

S04C -THE TERMINAL MONITOR PROGRAM (TMP) WAS INVOKED AT ENTRY POINT IKJEFT1A AND THE TMP DETACHED A PROGRAM THAT COMPLETED WITH A NON-ZERO COMPLETION CODE (WHICH IS IN REGISTER 15).

I can understand from the above message that IKJEFT1A is a TMP but i get properly why the abend occured. do someone help me by cracking this abend

What is in R15?
The program running issued a non-zero RC, why?

You have trouble referencing the Messages and Codes manual?
Quote:
04C

Explanation: A user invoked the TMP (terminal monitor program) and the TMP detached a program that completed with a nonzero completion code. The nonzero completion code is in register 15.

Hi Hellblazer,
My understanding is as below,
You are invoking a program using TMP as IKJEFT**, your program given some non zero return code.Any non zero return code given to TMP, It will throw the abend S04C abend.the return code of your actual program will be in Register 15, normally register 15 is ued to store the return code.From the Abend Aid or CEEDUMP you will get the value of register 15

Hi all thanks a lot.

When i checked with SAR it had an registy for abend.

in that for R15 i had 000008 as value. And yes since this is eight the abend occurred. But why this abend didnt come when we rerun the program. Is that someway related to our input file. If yes then how can i find the error record.

Sorry for asking too many questions icon_smile.gif
