APAR Error Description / Circumvention

-----------------------------------------------
Inserting to a file with multiple field procedures may not see
the field procedure called for every field and causing some of
the data to not get encoded.

CORRECTION FOR APAR MA46940 :
-----------------------------
When there are multiple field procedures, with different encoded
and/or decoded lengths, the internal structures used to build
the field procedure parameters map slightly differently.  Reused
storage from call to call, for input mapping processing (decoded
to encoded conversion) wasn't being properly initialized in
every structure, which made a source field appear to be "null",
which skips invoking the field procedure.  The processing has
been corrected.

The files with fieldprocs need additional processing to take
advantage of this fix.  After the fix is loaded, remove the
fieldprocs and add them back in.  An alternative option is to
save the file, delete the file and restore the file.

CIRCUMVENTION FOR APAR MA46940 :
