Hmm - that brings up an interesting question.
Does the rollback appear on the journals?

Yes, check the journals and journal receivers. One question, are they forgetting to COMMIT transactions? I once wrote a program that forgot that. Hey, data's there! Sign off, data's gone!? Didn't commit, so it did a rollback.

Back before you started journalling, programs would blow if you tried to update them with SQL and you didn't change the default to not use commitment control. Now you're journalling. So you don't get that message. But you also aren't committing your transactions. So it rolls them back.

Hi All,

We have a physical file that we are having problems retaining data. For
some reason, data is being written to the system, but at random times it
will delete a random amount of records.

All of the programmers swear that it's nothing they have created that is
deleting the records. So with that said, is there any type of a
trace/audit that would show me all of the read/writes performed on a
physical file?

We tried to set up a monitor in Navigator, but it doesn't appear to have
worked. Anybody else have a clue on how to track changes in a PF?
