pestering for a reply after 19 minutes is not the best way to gain the benevolence of people willing to help

You should remember that
replying on a forum is on voluntary base, on our own time, free of charge

there is no commitment to reply, there should be no expectation to receive an answer

if as You say... its needy a forum is not the best place to ask ...
cheers

also pestering for replies with private messages is a way of
making Your chances of getting help very very slim

to make the most out of the questions You ask it would be wise for You
to read and meditate on

You need to be more specific about what context you mean. Return code when referencing a job is a value from 0 to 4095 which in some way (depending upon the program being executed) indicates the success or not of the program. The program did not ABEND but it may not have run successfully. For VSAM, the return code indicates the result of the command, (the range is 0 to 256 and most if not all of them are multiples of 4) and a reason code specifies more detail about the problem. Search the IBM web site for IDC3009I to get more details about possible VSAM return codes and their associated reason codes.

Status code and error code typically require a context to determine their meaning as well.
