Question: 

What is the purpose of EXPLODE Command in RTOS Extract?

Answer: 

For RTOS Extracts (MODE=A(ction)) the EXPlode command shows the objects that were selected in real time the last time the Extract was executed/previewed. The list will be "empty": 1) for a new RTOS Extract that has never been executed, 2) if the last RTOS Extract executed did not select any objects based on the selection criteria, or 3) if a fatal error happened after the DELETE of the definition rows but before the new INSERTs. ("empty" may mean there are place holder rows for DSNDB06.SYSEBCDC).
