Please the spool/job execution details. There you can find some info on this.
Return code 16 can be a problem with jcl OR cobol program.

check the spool details.

Jussara,

To start with -- JCL itself does nothing but execute programs. So the Return codes (RC) tells the statistics of what happened to the program executed in that step, RC don't belong to JCL but the programs.

To get better help, as suggested by Natarajan, please post the SYSOUT details.

For new questions, my suggestion is to start new thread ( Click on Post Button ).

ERROR HANDLING IN COBOL PROGRAM

once you get return code from the step that means execution of the program is completed with some error. If your question is around, if there is a internal error, you want to by pass that error and continue executing the program. COBOL has error handling phrases with most of the COBOL verbs UNSTRING statement has ON OVERFLOW phrase. Arthmetic operations ( ADD, SUBTRACT, MULTIPLY, DIVIDE and COMPUTE ) has ON SIZE ERROR phrase. in input-output operations, there are several imporatnt error-handling phrases and clauses.. AT END Phrase, INVALID KEY phase, FILE STATUS clause.

if a severe error occured, that can be handled by User-written Error handling Routines supported by ILE cobol.

Program execution? I'm skeptical about this, I usually hear about JCL execution after such RC from some steps (though that JCL question in itself has its own flaws, let's leave them alone for the time being)?
