JCL does not abend.

Your question makes no sense. Have you got an abend or not? If you have - what is it. Why search forums and tutorials? Why not go the official IBM documentation?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

As NicC say, "JCL" does not ABEND. "JCL" is a language, sort of. It is not a program. Only programs ABEND. The IBM programs that analyze JCL can ABEND, though this is very unusual.

For us to any any chance of helping you we need more information.

Most true ABENDs have a 3 hexadecimal digit "system" ABEND code or a 4 decimal digit "user" ABEND code. What is it?

You may be seeing a message that you are interpreting, possibly incorrectly, as an ABEND. What is it?

You will not get an ABEND, You will get an AM status code ( IIRC )

Call function not compatible with processing option, segment sensitivity, transaction code, definition, or program type.
When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
