Error description

  • TRAP TITLE '&CICS390 - GLOBAL TRAP EXIT PROGRAM' @L3C 00300000
    
    The ' & ' causes assembly to end with RC 8 and error message
    ASMA003E .
    Removing the ' & ' or replaceing it by a 'valid' character like
    a ' C '
    corrects the problem.
    If it looks like:
    TRAP TITLE 'CCICS390 - GLOBAL TRAP EXIT PROGRAM' @L3C 00300000
    CICS/TS mainenance on it.
    There is no problem with the CICS230 provide DFHTRAP.A .

    * PROBLEM DESCRIPTION: A return code 8 is issued with message  *
    *                      ASMA003E when assembling DFHTRAP.       *
    ****************************************************************
    * RECOMMENDATION:                                              *
    ****************************************************************
    When assembling an unaltered DFHTRAP, the following message
    appears:
    '** ASMA003E Undeclared variable symbol'.
    This is due to an ampersand in the &CICS390 symbol on the
    title line.
    In addition, the following message:
    '** ASMA140W END record missing'
    appears because there is no END statement.
    
    Keywords: RC04 RC08 msgASMA003E msgASMA140W TRAP
    

Problem conclusion

  • DFHTRAP has been altered so that the title line does not
    contain an ampersand. Also an END statement for the module
    has been added.
