Question: 

What is the '*Backout' LMOD Entry on CONPRT80 & what does it signify?

 

Answer

The *Backout entry is a single report entry for all the Backout members in the library. 

In the Load library I tested with, there are 3 backout members - the funny named ones starting with the dot: 

_________ ....{(|. 
_________ .SBCRGS4 
_________ .T31AQC1 
**End** 

The first one is: 

********************************* 
.Ø.....&TESTPGM1.......wIGZEBST . 
س............................... 


The second one is: 

******************************* 
.Ø.....&DEMOSRC1.......wIGZEBST 
س............................. 


And the last one is: 

********************************* 
.Ø.....&TESTSRCA.......¶IGZEBST . 
س...1..|1Îî..è«..2..|Âð.Â..Âþ.3. 


In the CONRPT80 report, it has a *Backout entry of: 

*Backout *LOADMOD QA PROBLEMS TESTCASE TESTSRCA COBOL 
TESTPGM1 QA PROBLEMS TESTCASE TESTPGM1 COBOL 
DEMOSRC1 QA PROBLEMS TESTCASE DEMOSRC1 COBOL 
IGZEBST 
IGZEBST 
IGZEBST 
TESTSRCA QA PROBLEMS TESTCASE TESTSRCA COBOL 



The *Backup entry is made up of all 3 Backout members - TESTPGM1, DEMOSRC1 and TESTSRCA. 

Each Backup member contained an include of IGZEBST so IGZEBST shows up 3 times in the *Backout entry.
