• Subject: ALCOBJ shared folder object?

We had an interesting problem occur.  We have a CL pgm that does a DSPFLR
TYPE(*DOC) to an outfile to get a list of files in the folder.  Then we read
through the outfile and perform a CPYFRMPCD for each file in the folder.  The
problem is that if a file is in the process of being written to the folder
from the source system, the CPYFRMPCD issues IWS1611 which can be monitored.
Actually, this particular error generates:

CPF8A80: Document DBAOSCST.SV in use in folder BALED.
IWS16B8: Error opening document DBAOSCST.SV.
IWS1611: PC document DBAOSCST.SV not copied.
>>Function check. IWS1611 unmonitored........

I have modified the application to monitor IWS1611 and delay and loop back to
the CPYFRMPCD.  I would rather monitor CPF8A80, which is a more specific
error.  CPF8A80 is an escape message type, and it would seem that it should be
monitor-able.  IWS1611 sounds like it could be issued for any number of
reasons.  Is it possible to see if CPF8A80 was issued when I monitor IWS1611?

Is there a way to allocate the shared folder object aka ALCOBJ *EXCL?  Or at
least a way to tell that the shared folder object is not otherwise being used
without first having to use CPYFRMPCD to determine this?
