Previously, there were two related aspects of variable record length space reclamation that differed for transaction-controlled files. Instances were noted where a TRANPROC file would grow unnecessarily. In a particular instance, frequent and constant FairCom DB SQL add and delete operations resulted in substantial growth of a data file.
To avoid this unexpected growth, both aspects of space reclamation are now treated the same for TRANPROC and non-TRANPROC files. COMPATIBILITY NO_VARLEN_TRAN_UNUSED reverts to the previous differentiated behavior.
