How do I generate CSV output from batch program?    

Started By  Woozy
We use an external scheduler to launch S3 batch jobs from the command line using wtsubmit or jqsubmit.  After the jobs finish, we want to retrieve the .csv file from the $LAWDIR/print directory, but these files don't appear to exist until a user opens Print Manager and clicks the 'Create CSV' button, which our automated scheduler can't do. Is there a way for us to trigger the creation of the CSV file from the command line, or some other way to make this happen The programs we are running ...

Distribution Group    

Started By  Chesca
We created a multistep job that runs MA236 for different users. Reports are run and supposed to be distributed to users and are available to view in their print managers. The problem is that only one of the users is able to see the report. The other 17 users/buyers can't see the reports in their print manager queue in Portal.  I can go into Print Manager and see the reports in each user's queue, but they can't. Any suggestions

All - I've created a custom program to print labels on a Zebra printer.  I basically copied the way AP290 has the labels set up in the .prt file.  The new Zebra printer is hooked up on the network, defined in prtdef, etc.  When I try to send the output (from the print manager) to the printer (I select the printer from the dropdown in print manager) - I get the message that the print file was printed but nothing physically prints on the printer.  After working with others for 3 days of trying to ...

Question on Custom Table with Unique-ID field    

Started By  LauraPat
Hi - I've created a  custom table and the first column in the table is the UNIQUE_I_D column because there are going to be duplicates within the key fields.  I want to use importdb to load a file into this table that was created by an outside system.  Because the first field in the table is the UNIQUE_I_D - I made the first field in every record in the file I'm loading equal to 0 (zero).  I realized I had to allow for that field when loading or everything is shifted off by 1 column.  All of the ...

Jobdef Job Not Found error    

Started By  maalimsimo
We have just upgraded to Lawson 10 and while most of our custom jobs are running as expected, we are have a few challenges. We have a job defined in jobdef for a batch user 'pcnprd', but then a korn shell script to run the job is giving the error 'Job not found in JOB table for User.' I have deleted and recreated the job in jobdef multiple times, and even created a brand new job with a different name but I still get the very same error.   Any thoughts on this

Calling perl script from Cobol program

New Report Added to Custom Report Program    

Started By  maalimsimo
After adding a new report to an existing .rpt program, adding the $PRINTFILE XXXXX to the workdef, adding lines to OPEN OUTPUT XXXXX-FILE and CLOSE XXXXX-FILE to the PD, when I run a job I am getting the message 'Unable to Open the Output File...'. Subsequently, my attempt to write to the Print file results in a longish error message 'No XRef for RptSub(3) to iXFFRef file - write ignored....'.I probably missed a step somewhere but I am not sure what.

It looks like the change did apply successfully, because it bumped u...
