This is what I'm getting, but I'll be damned if I can find anywhere in the documentation where the return codes are defined. Can anyone point me to a doc that has the list of return codes and their meanings?

Have no idea what the OS is, so, I'll speculate, MVS:
MVS Abend Codes from GOOGLE, usually empty file...

So it's just shipping the error code from SQL*Server?

This page has links to a number of error message lists, including "FOCUS Error Messages By Number":

If you are running MVS batch: return code 8

SQL error codes. Error code 8 is near the bottom of the list.

Dan,
If this is a RC=8, not a negative 8, and you are running in MVS - you are missing a FIN at the end of your FOCUS code.

Have fun!

Also, if you're running in MVS, this could be a controlled error capture within the FOCUS program.
Look for "-QUIT FOCUS 8".

Just to follow up, this was a pathing issue for me. The application was not in the user's path -- the app seemed to run correctly but it could not access data via the master files within and this is the error it threw. MS SQL*Server though I doubt that matters.
