We are new to IBM Fast Apply and have been using a competitor product. With IBM we are experiencing some pain points and the tool is frankly not up to standards with what we purchased. HIGH priority!

    Some of the items are being addressed.

    registers to be processed.
    Added summary report, which describes total inserts, updates,
    deletes and the list of warnings/errors met.
    Allowed "not previously used" job identifiers to be specified in
    "Execute Dynamic SQL in Batch: Fast Apply" ISPF panel.

    This APAR addresses the following issues:

    1) Fix abend 30A000 in ISPF when coming out of Setup menu.
    2) Add v12 validation to FAS.
    3) Possible loop when running in 2PH VSAM mode.
    4) Add "NON ATOMIC" attribute to Multirow insert in Fast Apply.
