sudo work-a-like for Cygwin    

Started by  Stuart Perkins
Has anybody migrated scripts and job steps which utilize the 'sudo -u userid' command to submit jobs as other users or execute commands as other users from a Unix (AIX, HPUX etc..) platform to windows Looking for alternatives to rewriting a bunch of scripts and breaking jobstreams (multi-step jobs executing other user's - system accounts - jobs), which will run under native Windows or Cygwin layer.

IF10.1 or NX10.1 Lookup Table Update    

Started by  Raphael Bernard
I just left an installation where we made extensive use of a form called "Lookup Table Update" it uses tables LUPTBLHDR and LUPTBLDTL. The version I used was NX10.1, but I think the more common version is IF10.1. It is even cataloged here on LawsonGuru: IF10 (  I would like to install this form at my current installation, but I don&39;t have the files. I placed a ticket with Infor and the techs I talked to have never heard of these forms.  I&39;m ...

Recurring Job Question for patching    

Started by  LauraPat
Hi all -   Asking for your input please!  Question on how you would do this.  I've done it both ways. We are going to be putting in ADFS this weekend and in a couple weeks, we are going to be installing another round of CTPs (we do these quarterly).  At my previous 2 employers, who both had Lawson - we never shut down every recurring job individually - the first thing we did is made sure no jobs were actively running in the job scheduler and then did stopjobqueue and that ...

.idx files not being created    

Started by  LauraPat
I could really use some help - this is really stumping us.  We have a cloned program of IC522 that we named BI523.  It's been working fine on our AIX operating system..  This weekend we moved our Lawson applications from AIX to Linux.  Now when we run the job - the custom program is no longer creating the .idx file and we can't figure out why.  I also ran the Lawson-delivered IC522 program and it does create the .idx file either.  All we did was bring the ...

Configuring Information Investigator to interface with Support Assistant    

Started by  GCAMM84

Interfacing new Employees into Lawson    

Started by  Joe O'Toole
We're going to be implementing an Applicant Tracking system and will need to interface data for applicants that are selected for hire into Lawson. Our existing hire process is manual and it invokes a custom DS form built off of HR11. Since we will be automating I was considering using HR511 (CSV) for this new interface. I've not used HR511 since we went live on Lawson - does anyone know if HR511 provisions the employee in Lawson to the same extent that HR11 does or is there extra work to be done...

Hi all.   Does anyone have .imp files for the M3 data import tool that I can reuse  We are having a debate with merit in Norway regarding our upgrade prosject of Movex and they say that we 'must' use the M3 data import tool to upload data, but we all agree that it`s and and they don`t seem to be able to help us good enough.  I see that we have to make .imp files to use in the import tool and when I ask them if they might provide us with those files used on other projects, w...

More places to the right of decimal    

Started by  John Chappell
Hello, I'm an accountant for a health insurance/care provider. We are migrating from an antiquated in-house software to a newer Epic product called Willow to manage pharmacy inventory. We have been testing for some time now. One problem that we have not been able to solve yet is a rounding variance that occurs as Willow rounds financial transaction data down to hundredths. No one here seems to think we can import any more than two places to the right of the decimal. I'm having a hard time ...

Custom Calendar    

Started by  LauraPat
Because we don't have a true job scheduler (like Tidal - which works awesome with Lawson!) - I'm looking for a way to create a custom calendar and have programs key off of that to determine whether a program should run or not based on whether it is a holiday, etc.  We have jobs that we do not want to run on holidays and as far as I can tell there is nothing in the Lawson job scheduler for that.  I was thinking of create a custom database calendar - that could be updated once a year via...

GL Interface to Lawson    

Started by  LauraPat
Just wondering if anyone has experience with specifically interfacing data from ScriptPro TPMS to Lawson for the G/L   Looks like they will only provide 2 canned reports that can be dumped to CSV files and then we have to do our own merging/mapping prior to import to GLTRANSREL.  Wondering if anyone has already been down this road....  TIA   LauraP

Conversion from AS400 to WIndows    

Started by  Deleted User
I have an older database from release 6.1 (I beleive) from the AS400, and I am backing all of the files off into CSV files. The next step will be to import the data into A newer Windows based version of Lawson. My client has not yet bought the new Lawson so I am not able to get any technical support from Lawson. My question is, is there a conversion tool that Lawson has that will take my CSV files from the old Lawson system and convert them to the newer Windows based Lawson files If not, what i...

S3 Query Wizard - UK    

Started by  Chris Snape
Hi all,   New to the forum and Lawson.   I am based in the UK with a lot of UK Locale PCs, which don't seem to like Date formats from our current version of the Lawson Query Wizard Add in. It keeps fetching the wrong date value into Excel for any US Date that can be read as a UK date. The rest it flips correctly. Causing me headaches to get it to stay consistent.   I can convert the incoming column to Text, Number or Date and makes no difference. I figured that the Add in mi...
