Hi,

When we write to GSAM file is it directly written and changes committed. I have a execution where checkpoint is issued after writing 5 records into GSAM. Now the jobs abended after writting 8th record. In the output GSAM I can see all the 8 records. I was hoping to see only 5 there. icon_sad.gif

Rajat
