Abend means "Abnormal End". When a job ends without completing successfully, in Tech terms it is an ABEND.

Error Code- is the value produced after the ABEND.
Like, SYSTEM ABEND CODES, USER ABEND CODES, Condition Codes etc.

Priyesh.

Hi,

Error occurs before the execution of JOB or STEP. The submitted work can be rejected before the execution and this is called JCL error. ie., syntax error.

But Abnormal termination (Abend) happens during the execution of a program in a step. There may some invalid operation, the operation that cannot be executed by the system in the program. When OS encounters such an operation, the respective JOB is terminated with the ABEND code as I mentioned above.

Bye
