M204.1934  File fileName has field-level constraints defined moreInfo

An attempt is being made to turn off transaction backout with the RESET command for a file that has some field-level constraints defined. For example, the file might contain at least one field with the UNIQUE or AT-MOST-ONE attribute.

Field-level constraints cannot be fully enforced in non-TBO files. Model 204 will issue the following prompt, and it will discontinue RESET processing or proceed according to the response received:


File manager response: The consequence of turning off TBO for files with field-level constraints defined is that records that violate those constraints can be stored in Table B (though they will be left logically deleted). If this is an acceptable situation and it is necessary to disable transaction backout, respond Y to the prompt. If this is an unacceptable situation, respond N.
