INIT FXX (Format Force Area)

The Force Area (FXX) contains logging-related information that has been forced from the Log Area (LXX).

Note: For details about the conditions that can cause information to be forced from the Log Area, see the chapter in the CA Datacom/DB Database and System Administration Guide about using logging.

The FXX should never be initialized when it is in use. In Simplify mode, edits protect this requirement in several ways. This function may not execute with the MUF enabled, and control is established over the CXX to execute without MUF. It may not follow any other functions that use MUF, and none may follow. The function may not follow any function causing the LXX to be opened.
