    1. File Manager was incorrectly ignoring the Copy prefix command
    when in a non update edit and the CUT command is being used.
    2. File Manager may overwrite storage.
    

Problem conclusion

  • 1. File Manager has been updated in order to correctly honor the
    C or CC prefix commands in a non update edit session, when used
    with the CUT command, allowing for CUT of a single or range of
    records as intended.
    2. File Manager has been modified to correct the problem.
