I have a job I run every week that updates a dataset using STD.File.ReplaceSuperFile. It normally runs fine, but this week and last the superfile has not updated. The WU is W20211115-095712 on Alpha Dev. How can I troubleshoot what is going wrong?

as far as I can see, W20211115-095712 didn't update the super file,
because it is coded with :
last_file_date := '20211108'

and so is expecting the superfile it is trying to manipulate to contain the subfile '~zwei::adi::mapping_ambest_20211108', but it does not.
Instead contains '~zwei::adi::mapping_ambest_20211025', so there was no action to perform.

Ah, I'm sorry for my oversight. I see now that it stopped working after a week where there was legitimately no updates and the last_file_date was out of sync with what was actually used in the superfile. Thank you.
