Re: Modernization and multi-member files



fixed

On Mon, 2008-07-14 at 08:57 -0500, Joe Pluta expounded on the
possibility of incorporating a batch indentifier in the working
records as a substitute for per-batch members. His suggestion
was to "post" such working records by clearing the batch
identifier.

FWIW, I suggest instead keeping the batch identifier permanently
and using a separate field for batch status. Then, users can
answer for themselves questions of the form "Hunh? Where did
this come from?" (Well, they can get the first-level answer,
anyway.) In an environment with large batches, a finer indication
may be worthwile, too.

HTH,
Terry.
