DATASET_CANT_OPEN error in batch


Hi Folks,

I'm experiencing the following error message when I try to execute a transaction in batch mode. If I run the program in foreground mode, the file is created successfully in the outbound dataset. But the transaction that calls the program submits it in background, and promptly falls over.

Because the program works in foreground mode, I presume the issue is not with my SAP access (which is set to SAP_ALL, SAP_NEW in this environment anyway). The file is created, so therefore the Unix permissions on the outbound dataset seem to be fine.

Anybody have any thoughts on why this program might be falling over? Points will be rewarded for helpful solution.
