How to resolve ABM3 abend?

My CICS program puts a message on the MQ and expects a response in 10 seconds. I am receiving the response properly but few times is causes ABM3 abend. This abend is not happening in all the cases. Please advise.

Hello,

Have you read about the cause of an abm3 abend? If not, do so. I believe the cause will be quickly understood.

Hello,

Change the program removing any screen activity or run the program attached to a terminal.

It is currently running with no terminal available so any screen commands will abend.
Hope this helps,

Hi All,

The problem was solved.
The reason was the response from MQ used to trigger 2 instances of CICS program.
1. CICS program continuously pools for response (this is handled by program)
2. The MQ response message also triggers the CICS program (this is not handled and thus ABM3 abend occurred)

Once the trigger from the MQ response message was turned off, the problem was solved.

Hope this helps...

Thanks & Regards,
Manmohan
