Question:
When adding an element, why am I getting an allocation error:

C1G0200I  ELEMENT ACTION REQUEST PROCESSING COMPLETED, HIGHEST ENDEVOR RC WAS 0012                              
                     END OF EXECUTION LOG - HIGHEST ENDEVOR RC = 0012                                              
Answer:
The return code, RC=0210-0000, indicates the dataset was not available to Endevor. Another task had an exclusive enqueue on file. Once the enqueue was removed, the Endevor job could run without problem.  Check for other taks that may have hold on dataset.
