Current production Cobol program Calls home-grown ABEND assembler routine returning CEE3250C when unsuccessful Open on VSAM.
Replaced home-grown ABEND assembler routine with a Call to ILBOABN0 (organization wants all Assembler replaced with Cobol).
When Call to ABEND replaced with Call to ILBOABN0, some of the Cobol programs will return CEE3205C and others will return CEE3204S ??
In each instance it was an Unsuccessful Open on a VSAM file.

A quick search in Google gives the following link:

www.ibm.com/support/knowledgecenter/SSB27H_6.2.0/fl2cp_identifying_hw_sw_signals.html

which indicates that CEE3204 is caused by a protection exception while CEE3205 is caused by an addressing exception. The VSAM file opens have failed for different reasons.

Garry.

Thanks Garry. My instructions were to duplicate results and I was trying to avoid rewriting the old homegrown Assembler program. Was able to do it by replacing with Call to ILBOABN0 and passing user abend code.
