prmpassed in custom Display Exec    

Started by  dslough
We are creating a process for an item add, where the request is coming from outside Infor and kicking off an approval IPA.  Within the approval IPA, it'll route to one person to assign a charge number, and then to procurement to assign an item description, vendor catalog, etc.  I'm trying to handle all of this within the inbasket, but since there isn't a classic workunit generated, the landmark workunit number doesn't get passed to the display exec for use in the chgvariable serlvets ...

Forcing ERROR from User Exit    

Started by  ArthurThum
I have an error condition that I would like the beginning USER EXIT to pass back to PA52. I am Setting CRT-ERROR-NBR = 106, CRT-ERROR-CAT ="PA52B", CRT-ERR-VAR1, CRT-ERR-VAR2 When I animate the program, as soon as the user exit exits and returns to PA52, the error variables are reset and the error is not passed along. What do I need to code to force ANY error to appear

COBOL CSV file    

Started by  klkemp100
We have a custom Cobol program ZU200 that creates a .csv file which is sent to an outside vendor. It uses the 800-OPENOUTPUTCSV-CDR to open the file and PERFORM 800-WRITECSV-CDR to write the file. I need to add 2 new fields to the .csv file, basically adding them to the end of the file. I would have thought that the file layout for the .csv file would be in the WORKING STORAGE section, but that is not the case. So, I&39;m not sure how the program knows what the layout is. Whe...

COBOL - Debug / Step Through    

Started by  klkemp100
Been YEARS since i&39;ve done any COBOL, as well as in Lawson. I&39;m trying to read through the MA531 PD file to understand exactly what / how it is processing our EDI data, possibly looking at doing a small modification. Anyway, looking through it and following everything is driving me crazy. Is there a way to run the program in our TEST environment in a debug mode where I can make the program step through and follow the path it takes in the PD file Many thanks!

Using MF COBOL Outside of Lawson Environment    

Started by  Roger French
Kind of a theoritcal question here. Is it possible to utilize and run existing Lawson COBOL programs outside of the Lawson environment  Meaning, let&39;s say you have a PR530 or HR211 program and your Lawson environment "goes down" and isn&39;t available, meaning LID and Portal aren&39;t running (for whatever reason). But, your MF COBOL run time and compiler are still available and licensed, as well as your Lawson S3 database and of course the Windows (or Unix) serv...

We plan to move from V10/Oracle DB/Linux to V10/SQL Server/Windows Coming from my perspective as a Lawson developer and support person - how difficult is it going to be to port all our custom programs, user tokens, Unix scripts, stored procedures, etc over to Windows.  Has anyone found that you have to pretty much rewrite your Linux scripts  Are there a lot of differences in compiling programs, Lawson programmer tools, etc.  I also thought that the Lawson table names are diffe...

Can PR514 be used to mass load W-4 changes?    

Started by  maalimsimo
Our 3rd party provider has requested that we explore the posibility of using XML files in place of the pdf files that we use presently as (manual) input for PR13 (Employee Taxes).   The idea is to somehow automate the process. We can parse the xml files in IPA to generate a csv file that should generally be formatted  like DEDLOADCSV (for PR514). Some questions:1. Can PR514 handle Tax withholding changes  2. If so, how do we specify what values to p...
