Question:

Jreport 8 BGIN checkpoint indicates Program Name IDMSDDAM.

 

Why does the ENDJ checkpoint indicate Program Name IDMSOCF?

Answer:

It was decided that this difference between the BGIN and ENDJ checkpoints would be retained. There are debugging processes that look for IDMSDDAM in the SSC program name field but IDMSOCF is eventually placed there so that people could relate the transaction to IDMSOCF. In addition, there are checks for the IDMSDDAM run-unit at other locations that provide special handling for these transactions.
