I see nothing like this in the original post . . .
I have no idea how A above relates to the question
It will cause an abend based on a particular condition reached
What will cause an abend?
Most confusing. . .
Please re-read the original request and explain how any
return-code can cause an abend (Hint - it will/can NOT). . . Abends are Sxxx (Syatem) or Unnnn (User). A return-code is never an abend. . . It may signify a problem, but it is not an abend.
