    We are looking into creating a automated process using PO529 and MA531. Does anyone know if there's a way to schedule the PO529? We want to schedule but have the early delivery date update to the prior date when it is run. Infor tech says it's not possible. I was curious if anyone uses this job for daily maintenance since it apparently has to be manually run each day.

    Anything is possible!  :-)  Do you have Infor Process Automation in place?  You could create a flow that would make this update for you and then run the job.  If not, I suppose you also could create a script that would create the same file the PO529 would with your own parameters/criteria that could be processed by the MA531.

    A pure S3 way to do this is to write a custom program which updates the parameters and submits the job. I've done a few of these over the years.

    Did a parameter updater myself.

    Jobdump the program in question to a text file.

    Did a program that reads in the text file, replaces the necessary parameter, writes out

    the changed record.

    Jobload the dump file.

    Run the job.

    If you code it right you can change any parameter including dates, on the fly.
