  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • An Abend 0C7 is occurring when a batch job is run.  It was
    determined that the Time field in the Programmer Name Field in
    the Job Card contained a Hex FB character.  Once this was
    changed to a valid decimal value the abend no longer occurred.
    This problem was recreated using the AGGBVRFY job that is
    provided by HourGlass. This was also causing the AGGLINK job to
    end prematurely.
    

Local fix

  • Correct the Time field value and rerun the job.
