Introduction:

When maintaining dictionary entities, how can I avoid the “DC601074  ALREADY CONNECTED” warning?

Background:

When editing dictionary entities, it is possible to encounter the warning message “DC601074  ALREADY CONNECTED” if two entities are already connected in some way.

For example:-

MOD  MODULE NAME IS MYMODULE1 VERSION IS 1
         'MYCLASS' IS MYATTR1
*+ W DC601074  ALREADY CONNECTED
         MODULE SOURCE FOLLOWS
LINE 1.
LINE 2.
LINE 3.
         MSEND
         .

 

If done in an IDMSDDDL batch job, this will result in a return code of 4.

Environment:
CA-IDMS all supported releases.
Instructions:

If you want to avoid the DC601074 warning message (and eventually the return code 4 when doing this in batch using IDMSDDDL), consider using the REPLACE (REP) verb instead of MODIFY (MOD):-

 

REP  MODULE NAME IS MYMODULE1 VERSION IS 1
         'MYCLASS' IS MYATTR1
         MODULE SOURCE FOLLOWS
LINE 1.
LINE 2.
LINE 3.
         MSEND
         .
