Abend is short for Abnormal end, abend is a term used to describe when a program or task ends without warning. Generally when an abend is encountered the user will receive some type of error message.

Abend specifies any abnormal termination of the program.
Error in a program is the one which is driven by he program itself.It may be a valid business error.Error is the one which is i total control of the program.But abend is external to a program
