19.11 Expanding messages and abend codes
Messages or abend codes are initially never expanded when using the interactive dump
reanalysis feature of Fault Analyzer. This is to prevent the need to scroll through potentially
long explanations to see report items that might follow. Instead, to view the explanation for
messages or abend codes in the interactive report, one can place the cursor on the message
identifier or abend code and press Enter. This will bring up a display similar to what you see in
the batch report, as shown in Figure 19-38 and Figure 19-39.

When a message is displayed in the report, the first occurrence of the message contains the
actual text from when it was issued. If the instance-specific text is not available, then a
comment job-specific text not available will replace it.
In the expansion that immediately follows the issued message or abend code is its
explanation that is generally obtained from the softcopy books provided with Fault Analyzer. If
an explanation for the message or abend code could not be found, then the text explanation
not available will replace it.
