2 Replies and 3627 Views Lawson MM to EPIC interface  3627  2 Started by  jcarrott We started using IC527 to extract data for EPIC, only to find out that IC527 is a delta extract. It only extracts what has changed since the last run of the IC527. We need to load the FULL extract before we can start doing the delta. Does anybody know what to use for the full extract, it would be great if it was in the same format and with the same name as the IC527.

Has anyone come across a table or file setting that determines this access I have tried removing access to the table via Lawson security and that did not remove it from the page as...
