Data Set Triggering

    I have a job that triggers off of one data set and has a second data set as a requirement. One time a month both files come in and the job runs no problem. The second time the job is supposed to run in the month, the requirement file will come in and the triggering data set will not, so a job will be run to create an empty file with the triggering files name but the job will not trigger. When looking in CA7 with the LCTLG,DSN=XXXXXXX command, CA7 does not see the empty file created via batch job but you can see the new GDG in MVS. Looking through manual and Google, I cannot seem to discover what would cause CA7 to not see the empty file to trigger the job. Anyone with any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated

    CA 7 tracks data set creation/update from the SMF type 15 record. This is a data set close for output record. If you stated the LTCLG does not show the creation and this is because CA 7 does not have information from the SMF type 15 record.You stated the data set empty and therefore there may not have been an smf type 15 record.
