Issue/Introduction

A CV-mode batch program is abending with an S878 abend code or encountering an unexpected 0072 error-status.

This is most likely to occur if the program repeatedly invokes a cobol subroutine which BINDs and FINISHes its own run-unit.

 

Cause

The program is using the IDMSB102 batch interface.

Environment

Release : All supported releases.
Component : CA IDMS

Resolution

The old 10.2 batch interface is still provided but rarely necessary.

To avoid this problem, either re-link the program with the conventional interface (IDMS as opposed to IDML), or make sure there is no IDMSB102 load module in the program's STEPLIB.
