Postby gowthamgyaa » Tue Nov 20, 2012 9:06 pm

Hi everyone,
whenever i Logon in to my account and open any of the dataset for the first time its showing a B37 and the control automatically returns to ISPF main menu panel.
If i open any of the dataset second time its opening.
What might be a problem?

Kind regards

What might be a problem?

if You want good answers learn to post good questions...
what You told is not enough to start analyzing the problem

look Yourself at the jes log of Your tso session ,
to see ALL the messages issued, look at the messages manual
to see what is going on
after that if there is something You do not understand
somebody will be glad to help You

doing a bit of reading on Your behalf ( system codes )

Explanation: The error was detected by the end-of-volume routine. This system completion code is accompanied by message IEC030I. Refer to the explanation of message IEC030I for complete information about the task that was ended and for an explanation of the return code (rc in the message text) in register 15.
Application Programmer Response: Respond as indicated for message IEC030I.

System Programmer Response: If the error recurs and the program is not in error, look at the messages in the job log for more information. Search problem reporting data bases for a fix for the problem. If no fix exists, contact the IBM Support Center. Provide the JCL and the program listing for the job.

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

Almost always a "37" error is some kind of Space issue. In my previous shop I always got a B37/E37 (can't remember now) whenever I would use the product Xpediter. I started logging-on with the following Size parameter and my Xpediter Space problem stopped.

Just for the heck of it try logging-on with a Size parameter. Curious to know if it helps you. Good luck!

Could you help us out just a LITTLE bit and tell you which data set the SB37 ABEND occurs for? The data set should be identified in the message -- is it the data set you are attempting to open, or one of your TSO data sets, or one of the system data sets?

What does your support group say? Also, how is this related to COBOL?
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

A B37 ABEND always generates an IEC030I message that includes a data set name. Neither your support group or us can help you unless you tell us the data set name in the IEC030I message
