Question:

My Support.ca.com "Download Cart Package Order" solution cart includes a ROnnnnn.HOLDDATA.DTA.TXT file for any PTF ROnnnnn that has ERROR HOLD. I have just downloaded the ALL-HOLDDATA.TXT. Do I need to concatenate those ROnnnnn.HOLDDATA.DTA.TXT files with ALL-HOLDDATA.TXT to the SMPHOLD DD when I run the RECEIVE job?

 

Answer:

There is no need to concatenate the individual ROnnnnn.HOLDDATA.DTA.TXT files to SMPHOLD DD when you already have the ALL-HOLDDATA.TXT.

The ALL-HOLDDATA.TXT is the complete set of current cumulative ERROR HOLDs including the same ++HOLD statements included in those individual ROnnnnn.HOLDDATA.DTA.TXT files.
