One of our Applications Programmers thinks that the Alternate index file isn't updating quickly enough, the following is the scenario;
His Cobol program runs to create invoices, the program has a process in it to detect & flag duplicate input to an error log. He has a instance where the program did not detect a duplicate & created a duplicate check for the same invoice. In his troubleshooting the problem he has one time had the duplicate entry, one after the other and the duplicate isn't flagged. In his other test he puts the duplicate entries further apart & the duplicate is flagged. He thinks the AIX file isn't processing quickly enough to post the duplicate. is this possible, does the definition in the AIX file have an update timer ?? Any help or direction is appreciated ..
Tell your programmer he/she is nuts. There is no timer for aix. Programmer obviously has a bug in the program. Fixing the program will fix the problem !
