If the CONWRITE is was using DSN=filename(member) the step can get an S213-74 ABENDs.

Using the filename(member) concept works with PDS but it does not with PDSe.

This error occurs when the member name is supplied in the file allocated for ELMOUT DDNAME. 

The member must be removed.  Endevor will supplied the member name when updating PDSe files in its Utility program.

 

Example of CONWRITE step with PDS:

//**================================================================**
//** CONWRITE - WRITE COMPONENT                                     **
//**================================================================**
//*
//CONWRITE EXEC PGM=CONWRITE,PARM='EXPINCL(&EXPINC)',MAXRC=0
//*
//ELMOUT DD DSN=&TYPLIB(&C1ELEMENT),
//          DISP=SHR,
//          MONITOR=COMPONENTS,FOOTPRNT=CREATE

 

Example of CONWRITE step with PDSe:

//**=================================================================**
//** CONWRITE - WRITE COMPONENT                                      **
//**=================================================================**
//*
//CONWRITE EXEC PGM=CONWRITE,PARM='EXPINCL(&EXPINC)',MAXRC=0
//*
//ELMOUT DD DSN=&TYPLIB,
//          DISP=SHR,
//          MONITOR=COMPONENTS,FOOTPRNT=CREATE
