APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-------------------------------------------------
If the indexer finds trigger 1, but no other trigger(s) are
found and all of the indexes are based off of fields that are
located by the triggers that are not found, the indexer will
pass incomplete information to the load process.  Even with the
incomplete information, the load appears to be successful,
although no rows are loaded into the index table and no object
is stored. A message number 87 indicating a successful load is
written to the system log.

CORRECTION FOR APAR 'SE61137' :
-------------------------------
The indexer does not handle the situation where trigger 1 is
found, indicating the beginning of a group, but no indexes were
found. This situation is caused by a bad set of indexer
parameters or because the data being indexed has changed. This
situation should have generated an error.  Since it was not
handled as an error, the load process continued on.  At server
versions 9.0.0.1 through 9.0.0.3, the load process will actually
complete normally even though no index rows are stored and the
report object is not stored.  Because of the normal completion,
the input data might be deleted, resulting in data loss since it
was never actually stored. The indexer will now correctly detect
this error and will cause the load process to fail with an
indexing error.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR 'SE61137' :
----------------------------------
None.

Special Instructions


********************************************************************
THE FOLLOWING ARE SUPERSEDED SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS. IF THE SUPERSEDED
PTF HAS ALREADY BEEN APPLIED AND ITS SPECIAL INSTRUCTION FOLLOWED,
IT IS NOT NECESSARY TO FOLLOW THAT SPECIAL INSTRUCTION AGAIN.
********************************************************************

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR SUPERSEDED PTF SI35730:
================================================

After applying this PTF, GROUP and RECORDRANGE triggers numbers 2 - n
will be directly based off trigger 1.  This is how the graphical markup
tool handles them.  What does this mean?  It means trigger 1 must be
found on a page for GROUP or RECORDRANGE triggers to be found on that
page.   Previously if trigger 1 had been found in the document then
GROUP and RECORDRANGE triggers would be found on any page.

There is a very small possibility that this will affect how some
reports are indexed.  If you are using a GROUP or RECORDRANGE trigger
that was being found on a page that did not have trigger 1 found on it
you now should use a FLOAT trigger to find that value.


Default Instructions

THIS PTF CAN BE APPLIED IMMEDIATE OR DELAYED.
