4038 or 4087 and HANDLE ABEND routine does not gain control in CICS TS

Technote (troubleshooting)


Problem(Abstract)

Your CICS transaction abends with an abend 4038 and your HANDLE ABEND routine does not get control. In this particular case, the abend 4038 is due to your COBOL application dynamically calling a module that is not available; this could be due to specifying an incorrect module name on the CALL or the module might not exist. The HANDLE ABEND routine also fails to get control when you receive an abend 4087.
