Record synonym problem

I've got a strange problem when trying to exclude a record synonym. Here
is the situation.

I created a new schema (testschm) and in this I added several new
synonyms to existing records. Example, record R123-record-a became
S123-record-a using the same IDD record definition of R123-record-a with
a RECORD SYNONYM of S123-record-a.

When I deleted the schema, the IDD records still have the synonym
associated with them. When I try the following syntax I get an error.

MOD REC R123-RECORD-A EXLUDE RECORD SYNONYM S123-RECORD-A.

*+ E DC601186  EXCLUDE ILLEGAL - RECORD SYNONYM PARTICIPATES IN A
*+ - DC601186  SCHEMA

A display of the record shows they synonym, but does not show it being
used or copied into anything. As I mentioned, I have deleted the schema
and there are no subschemas. I am trying to find anything about this in
the manuals, but so far I am not having any luck.

Does anyone have an idea why I cannot remove the synonym and what I need
to do to delete them?

Thanks in advance.

Re: Record synonym problem
"Dan,
Yes, I did try displaying the record synonym and it shows that nothing
is attached to it. Since I sent the original email I also went into the
dictionary using DMLO. I find that there are 2 RCDSYN records for this.
One with a builder code of D (dictionary) and the other with a builder
code of S (Schema). With the schema deleted, I would think the S version
of the RCDSYN would have been deleted.

Thanks for the idea. I have opened a problem ticket with CA. I will send
a note out to the list and let everyone know if it is 1) 'working as
designed', 2) something I did wrong, 3) an undocumented feature, or 4) a
bug (and fix if available).
