    The data merge placeholders appears because the merge was canceled in progress. The recursive count variable didn't reset along with the cancellation, so when the merge begin anew, it pick up right where it left off until it reaches the end. After that, there are no more records to merge, so it just left the placeholder in place and count until it have the right number. Once the bad merge completes though, it does reset the variable and the next job merge just fine to our endless frustration.

    Closing the file alone does not reset the recursive count variable. ID must close completely after stopping the cancelled merge to reset the count and not have the placeholder appears.
