Hi,

We have an NDM job, which receives file from server to mainframe. At times data is not there and NDM flags an error. The error is seen on the NDM screen as "Source file open failed. Errno=00000002. Filename=&FILE".

The question is that, is the source file empty or the file is not present at the source.

why not look at the manuals Yourself

the message hints that NDM has not even attempted to read anything
just tried to open the file

in general all well behaved programs do not care about the a file containing some data
or just an end of file

( just tested with FTP and it behaves well, it creates an empty file )

but .... instead of wasting time asking on a forum
wouldn' t have been simpler to test Yourself
with ....
a file that You know does not exists
a file that You know being empty

and do Your own deductions about the message received

Thanks Enrico for your help to clear the doubt, that NDM works fine with empty file.

I cant test it, because we dont have access to the server where the file is placed. I thought of asking the question on forum, instead of asking the server team to place an empty file.. and taking the risk of failure.

Thanks again for your help.

Hello,

Proving what will happen should NOT be considered a failure . . . icon_sad.gif
