Description:

Executing the Installation Verification Program for VISION:Excel can abend with a U0300.

Solution:

When VISION:Excel 7.0 is installed, the last step is to run an IVP, Installation Verification Program. Page 3-37 of the VISION:Excel 7.0 installation manual states:

A listing of program TESTPROG follows. Use TESTPROG along with the preceding JCL proc, or your own Excel JCL, to verify the installation.

... FILE ARFILE FB 352 5280

The problem is that the 'preceding JCL proc' has no reference to an DD for ARFILE, so a U0300 abend occurs.

//ARFILE DD DSN=YOUR.RESULTS.DEMOFILE,DISP=SHR

needs to be added pointing to the demofile from the VISION:Results 6.0 installation. See page 64 of the VISION:Results Installation Manual.
