On version 4.0.5.CD there is a menu that you have to be a security officer
to access ... do SYS & enter, then see if option 23 takes you to a files
reorganization menu which for us has option 21 Data Area Maintenance which
keeps track of where each job stream is on a particular work station ...
ACR500 is NOT on our list ... but we also sometimes dump what's in all the
data areas to find some with whacko settings.

The issues are:
* BPCS error messages can be obscure and misleading.
* A person is supposed to finish certain work before anyone else in same
area & BPCS keeps track of this a number of different ways, such as a
batch "member" in some file or data area, named after combination of work
station prefix and a couple letters identifying the application ... this is
explained in SSALOG00 Logic "manual" in BPCSDOC file.
* Since the work area is often named after the work station, only that same
session side can continue where the work was left off.

Hi Dave

Have you tried to re access the batch on the same screen ?

It might be a "In use flag" or a screen id plotted in one of the files
RCM or RAR or the Payment Work file and not a System Record Lock.

I don't know V4 but you might also have a System menu with a
Task to Release Lock in certain files.

C how u go

A user accidentally killed a session while in ACR500. Now when we
try to do a payment we get the message: "Attempting to access a
record that is in use by another job. Try again" with a message ID
of UMI1014. I've looked at the code and it appears that message
only is displayed if the program can't chain to get a record in a
handful of files. I don't see any record locks. Could the program
have deleted a record when the session died? They are trying to
close things up because today is month-end.

We are on BPCS 4.02. Thanks.
