Unfortunately, the file does not have a unique key or auto-id field, and it is not currently journaled. It's one of the biggest files on our system @ 36 million rows. As a transaction file, rows are never deleted (only inserted).

Some more info
I have never used journaling before (no rollback or commit).
My procedure is inside a service program that updates other files (COMMIT=*NONE).
This service pgm is used all over the place.

So if I turn on journaling for this file would it journal all transactions? Or just those from my program? All other programs updating this file do so via RPG (not SQL).

For now, I have added an extra SQL statement to check for the condition before attempting to insert - but that only checks for the condition that I have anticipated.
This will most likely take care of any issue, but...

If your file has a unique key - this is the way to go. If your file has an auto-id field, you can retrieve the value of the given id after the insert, and delete the file.

But most probably, commitment control is the way to go - simply roll back after the insert - and it’s gone. Of course, old programs can use „nc“ and your program uses „cs“ - it doesn’t hurt.

Just because your ERP doesn't use commitment control, doesn't mean a
process you've written can't use it.

Unless the file isn't journaled...

You have the data you inserterted, I assume there's a primary or unique key.

I'm working with a legacy transaction file from our ERP (i.e.
Commit=*none).
My SQLRPGLE service program procedure inserts two records/rows into the
file (they are complementary rows - both are necessary)

If the first insert fails, I simply exit the procedure with an error.

But I'm not sure how to handle the situation where the first insert is
successful, but the second insert fails. If this occurs, I need to remove
the row I successfully inserted.

Is there some way to capture the exact row I inserted successfully? Like
maybe the relative record number? Or am I out of luck here.

TIA,
