When I use the followin command in my program I get AEYD Abend. Cause - 'Invalid address passed to CICS'. Any help in solving this will be helpful. Command: EXEC CICS COLLECT STATISTICS SET (SET-POINTER) POOL ('POOL1') TARGET (WS-TARGET-NAME) RESP (WS-CICS-RESPONSE) END-EXEC SET-POINTER points to DFHA24DS copybook.
The AEYD Abend does not mean Invalid Address passed to CICS. It has a more subtle meaning. Instead, it means that you asked CICS to access (read it or write it or create it) an area to which the transaction itself did not have access. You need to look at the Problem Determination Guide and the Messages & Codes books to find out what is going wrong.
In your case, you should not be passing in an area on the SET parm, as CICS will be returning a pointer in that field. Thus, it's more than likely that you are in the wrong Storage Protection Key. If this is the case, then you have probably got the TASKDATAKEY incorrect in the program definintion (or EXECKEY in the Transaction definition).
