Rick, You need to see the SWA talk that I do at COMMON. If you (ort anyone else) want the handout, send me private e-mail. There are two ways to use SWA, the hard way and the easy way. Had IBM coded this function properly the would have given us parameters of *HARD and *EASY, but they didn't. In both cases, SWA will easily do an bad save, and not tell you! You must read the documentation, and obtain a basic understanding of the function. I do my SWA talk usually right before "ask the experts" night, where I am flattered to be invited to attend, and usually get 20+ users that come up to me from my talk and say "Do you mean to tell me that my save strategy is flawed?" The answer is usually "Yes".

To: email@example.com com> cc: Sent by: Subject: The General Consequences when using Save While Active? midrange-l-admin@mi drange.com 01/18/02 10:13 AM Please respond to midrange-l We are considering the incorporation of this parameter into our nightly backup routine because there are occasions when some of our files are receiving updates during the execution of the backup program. Question...EXCLUDING committment control issues which were just previously discussed in another thread, are there any NEGATIVE ramifications to using the SWA parameter? Abnormal termination of save command? Effects on the file being saved when open and updating? Anything else that may dissuade me from going in this direction. Thanks much.
