This happens when what we call is a "LIVE" record on the WIP (Work In Process) files. 

These members are deleted if you exit the TDF cleanly. If you shut the terminal off, have a power failure, or abend in the TDF, there are records left on the WIP files (TNTDDW, TNTDFW and TNTDXW). 

These records can be deleted in 2 ways. 

Running a Batch job (usually at night when no one is on the TDF) JREORGWK will del/def and reinitialize the WIP files. You have to be sure no one is accessing the WIP files when you run the JREORGWK, as the job needs exclusive use of the files. 

CA-Telon release 5.1 (also 4.1 and 4.0) provides the ability to Zap these leftover "live" WIP records through the TDF INSTALL menu, as follows: 

Type in INSTALL at the command line.

Caution should be exercised here, so as not to DELETE a WIP record that really is in use by a current user that is currently logged on to the TDF.
