Error description

  • Receiving message:
    "Record Updated by other user" erroneously when no other user
    updated the file and indeed there were no other enqueues
    against the file.
    
    This will occur with a variable length file where the record is
    length less than the max, as the file record length variable is
    being set incorrectly.
