You can track all active APARs for this component.

APAR status

  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • If you create an OLE object in an object with no other text in
    it, subsequently removing it will not purge the deferred data
    file. This results in orphaned data files and could potentially
    lead to problems like backups taking longer than they should do.

    If you create an OLE object in an object with no other text
    in it, subsequently removing it will not purge the deferred
    data file. This results in orphaned data files within the
    DOORS database and could potentially lead to problems like
    backups taking longer than they should do.
    

Problem conclusion

  • The code has been changed so that the orphaned data files
    are removed when the scenario occurs
