I have Compiled a module in V5.1 and executed Job, but receiving User abend 4093 as below.

COMPLETION CODE      USER = 4093       REASON CODE = 000003EC   
PSW AT ENTRY TO ABEND   078D1000  8005D8CC  ILC  02  INTC  000D
PSW LOAD MODULE             ADDRESS = 0005B080  OFFSET = 0000284C

As per most of the mainframe sites, I have compiled with option REGION=0M still facing same error.

Colour tags replaced by code tags

Note: Once compiled the module in V4.2, Job is executing fine. Issue is only with V5.1.

Please help me with your input.

First, 4.2 and 5.1 of what? You posted in the ABENDS & Debugging section so there's no indicator of which language you're using. Do you mean COBOL or CICS or what?

Second, COMPILING with REGION=0M does ABSOLUTELY nothing for you -- if the program compiled without REGION=0M, adding it does not change a single thing when you execute the program. Remember that compiling a program and executing the program are two different activities, and while it might have made sense (sort of) to put REGION=0M on the execution, putting it on the compile does not.

Third, is your program a CICS program? If so, this is a very important piece of data for you to not mention -- and there's an APAR that IBM put out about CICS programs and COBOL 5.1 getting a 4093 with reason code 3EC. Googling 4093 reason code 3ec will let you find it.

Fourth, if the APAR doesn't apply to you, you need to open a PMR with IBM to find out what the issue is. You're not likely to get an answer on this (or any) forum.
