Look for the ones that have been created/changed lately. John Carr From: Leland@dleland on 10/11/99 10:19 AM To: MIDRANGE-L@MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com@SMTP@EXCHCONNECT cc: Subject: RE: MCH3402 Unfortunately, there are many other programs being called in the job. It's an "async" job which waits for an entry to hit a data queue and then calls other programs with the data received. Looks like I could be in for a long hunt here. Thanks for the reply, Dave -----Original Message----- From: John P Carr [ mailto:firstname.lastname@example.org] Sent: Friday, October 08, 1999 7:39 PM To: MIDRANGE-L Subject: Re: MCH3402 Dave Are ANY, I mean ANY other programs being called within this job stream ?? Don't look at just these two and think you looked everywhere. For example, PGMA calls PGMB PGMB returns to PGMA sometime later PGMA calls PGMC PGMC returns to PGMA Sometime later PGMA calls PGMB PGMB returns to PGMA PGMA goes down for a MCH error. Who's fault ?? PGMC stepped on the PSSA or Working Variables area of PGMA without PGMB knowing it, It wasn't a problem till PGMA tried to refer to those variables(or other things like program names, parms, etc) that it discovered someone TOASTED PGMA's area. It probably isn't PGMA, nor PGMB but someother program in the stack that may or may not logically be called every time. What makes it worse is that you could run it many times without PGMA happening to refer to the particular area that got stepped on, or the problem program being called. But. I'd be willing to bet that It's a mismatched parm somewhere. You have to look at EVERY program that may logically be called. John Carr From:Leland@dleland on 10/08/99 03:06 PM To: MIDRANGE-L@MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com@SMTP@EXCHCONNECT cc: Subject: MCH3402 Okay, I'm stumped. I know that Hans has said when these MCH errors occur, it's usually not the operating system but a bug in a user program. Well, we have 2 programs that get these (only once and a while though) and I've been on a hunt to find the culprit but have been unable. I've checked all the parameters of the calling and receiving programs and they match. I'm at a loss. What other things should I be looking for?
