Select statistics with information of the XLATE name being used.

I currently use conversion tables for file transfers and receipts.
But I need to have control over the logs, which tables are being used.
Currently, I only identify in the Connect logs whether or not the transmission process is using a table (Select Statistics - Translation = Y / N)
But its not being used for that transmission or reception.
Note: In Windows version 4.2.00 had this option.

What is your industry? Financial Markets
How will this idea be used?

We have about 60,000 processes per day, but we do not know which conversion tables are being used for each process. We can have serious financial impacts on the environment due to some change in one of these tables, impacting another unknown process.

    Hi Chris,

    Thanks for the feedback!
    This is a great news for us, as it would help a lot to have a better control of the environment.

    Please let us know when this is implemented.

    Thank you!

    Thank you for opening this enhancement request with IBM.  I have reviewed it with my team and believe that this would be a valuable enhancement to Connect:Direct.  This will be accepted as an uncommitted candidate and I will look to add it to the roadmap as as option to log in our stats.
