Description:

When calling the CA File Master for MVS startup REXX procedure, CAWAFM from the CDBISAMP library, and the application terminates with:
"ISPF Allocation Error" and "Link to 'CAWKNQID' failed ABEND code x'00000806'" please check the syntax of the REXX library concatenations.

Solution:

The following is the correct syntax in order to concatenate LE libraries:


...                                                         
   "ALLOC F(LLIBI) DA('"INSTPRE".CDBJLOAD',                
                       'CEE.SCEELPA',                      
                       'CEE.SCEERUN') SHR REUSE"           
...                        

The Abend could e.g. occur when a plus sign was used instead of comma.


   "ALLOC F(LLIBI) DA('"INSTPRE".CDBJLOAD' +               
                       'CEE.SCEELPA',                      
                       'CEE.SCEERUN') SHR REUSE"

"TSO ISRDDN" can be used in order to check the current allocations. It should display the expected libraries. E.g.


...                                                         
TSU001   SHR,KEEP   >    LLIBI    HLQ.FMIMS85.MSM.CDBJLOAD
MVR21A   SHR,KEEP   >             CEE.SCEELPA               
MVR21A   SHR,KEEP   >             CEE.SCEERUN
