It's been my experience that this technique usually ends up covering up errors and making it very difficult to correct a problem that could be corrected on the spot, rather than having to figure out first where the error actually occurred, by which time it is no longer possible to get a program dump which is usually invaluable in finding decimal data errors, and second, figuring out what's required to rerun the job. In most of the shops I've worked in, there is usally a mix of vendor-written, and home-grown software, neither of which uses the others standards. I've always found it a lot easier to find a problem if the job is sitting on the error message where it first occurs. > | This is the Midrange System Mailing List! > | To submit a new message, send your mail to MIDRANGE-L@midrange.com. > | To subscribe to this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-SUB@midrange.com. > | To unsubscribe from this list send email to MIDRANGE-L-UNSUB@midrange.com. > | Questions should be directed to the list owner/operator: email@example.com > +--- __________________________________________________ Do You Yahoo!?
