More on the x37 Abend (read this one first!)

Well it turns out that there is, in some cases, a much simpler method of dealing with the x37 abend. As I mentioned before, any x37 means you've run out of space. So dig this, when you save members of a data set, z/OS saves the old copies. After a while, those copies can cause you to run out of space. When you browse the dataset, enter "/" at the command field,

then choose option 12 "Compress Dataset".

This will delete the old copies and hopefully free up some space. This will not work in cases where you've run out of directory space. In other words, if compressing the data set doesn't work, then go ahead and fix it the hard way as described in the previous Abend x37 post.
