-- From the VSAM/T Message Guide:
ddname TRANSACTION BACKOUT ON FILE ERROR, FEEDBACK CODE xxxxxx
Reason: During CLOSE processing for a file defined with TRBOFE=YES in the VSAM Interface Table, the Transparency determined that the previous request ended in a file error. Therefore, all updates were backed out.
Action: This message indicates normal functioning. See the VSAM documentation for the VSAM feedback code displayed in the message to determine the source of the file error. Correct the error in the application or JCL, then rerun the job.
-- From the VSAM/T User Guide
Paragraph "Promote Integrity":
Transaction backout and termination of the application, if the application issues a CLOSE immediately after issuing a request which failed with a file error other than EOF or no record found. To activate this feature, code TRBOFE=YES in the DBVUSTR macro of the VSAM Interface Table.
