What to do if a batch job returns the system abend code 013 (S013) when started from the TABEX/4 browser interface?

Batch-Job terminates with system abend code 013

It may happen that a batch job that was started from the TABEX/4 Table Manager, returns the system abend code 013, although this does not normally hapen e.g. when started with TSO-SUBMIT.

The system abend code 013 indicates a file open error. Since the error only occurs when starting from tabex via the 'internal reader', it is most likely related to an instream file. The assumptions for the 'internal reader' might not fit to the open of the file which is referenced in message IEC141I.

Check your settings and set the relevant definitions for the 'internal reader# in the allocate script for the job type. Or replace the instream file.
