This is one scenario which I encountered during testing a mantis code:
We code a prgm in MANTIS and it accesses the external file - VSAM(KSDS).
There is a MANTIS screen which accesses this KSDS file through which u can insert/view records into/from the KSDS.
For testing, i tried inserting a record in the KSDS file through ditto.
But, strangely this record was not found, when u tried viewing through online screen but was present in the file.
When i tried inserting the same record through online screen and it was fine.
Is there any reason behind this, if someone could help????
