DME - Duplicate File

Hi Guys

While running the RFFOUS_T program, there were some memory issue in our production system and it got cancelled. In the spool ( thru SM37) I see data of 2 employees with their bank and amount information.

When we fixed the memory issue and re-ran the DME program ( RFFOUS_T), it created the file and the bank also received the ACH file. But when i tried to see the spool thru SM37, i see nothing and get the warning message that there may be duplicate files.

my question:-

1. WHen DME was run 1st time, where does it create a flag that it was run 1st time. I think I should have either unchecked the Flag before running the DME 2nd time so that spool could have been created. Or, how could have I deleted the truncated file that was created when DME was run for the 1st time.

2. Is there a way now to get the spool for the DME when it ran successfully in the 2nd attempt.

3. If DME does not run successfully in the 1st attemp, what actions should have I taken so that when DME was run in the 2nd attempt, it would have created SPOOL ( SM37).

I appreciate your suggestions / help.

    This may not have anything to do with DME being run more than once. Regardless of whether you write file to application server or to Temse, the DME file name should be unique as date and time stamp are part of the file name.

    This might just be a BASIS issue where spool file names being duplicated due to spool file number (number range generated) running out of number (I remember running into duplicate spool files a year or so ago).
