Restart Logic : after every successful processing of a record, you need to store that recordID in some other file. when the program starts execution, it first checks that file for the last successfully processed record. after getting that recordID, the program reads the input file for that recordID and processes the next record onwards...

Hello,

To add just a bit more:

You need to consider what the abended process was doing. . .

For example:

If it was creating a report output, the report(s) needs to be completely restarted from the beginning even if only to get the accumulators back in sync.

If it was creating output files, they too would need to be re-synched.

If there were database updates (some of which were "rolled back" because of the abend not occurring exactly at a checkpoint), the database will be out of sync.
