Actually, (not that I've seen any vendors doing this in practice), you 
could set up your databases with journalling and commitment control.  That 
way if a stupid program updates an item balance but doesn't update the 
item by warehouse balance until after user intervention, and you abort the 
job, it would back out the update to the item balance.  And, thus, the 
balances would match.

Re: Auto signoff






I "opine" that it is better to do the automatic sign-off,
more so if a night-job will be abended. A record partially
updated for this reason in my view should be treated as any
other "mistake" in the users' data entry, such as a typo'd
item number, customer number, etc. In fact, that's exactly
what it is.

Subject: Auto signoff


| What if any are the argumens against having an automatic
systems value signoff. I heard an opinion expressed that it
could lead to a problem of a record partially updated. The
other side of the problem, is that we had a user not sign
off at the end of the day and was in fact holding a record,
this caused the night jobs to abend.
