3 Replies and 1763 Views Could not connect to SMTP host  1763  3 Started by  JudeBac Could not connect to SMTP host:, port: 25; Connection refused We do not have an issue with the SMTP Mail Server. However, for some reason, glitches do happen. So far twice this year and none before that. I can't find a way to catch this error inside a processflow. It is in the wuerr log file. I can check if the wuerr file exists but I need to be more specifc, which is, does it contains 'Could not connect to SMTP host'. Appreciate your advice....

5 Replies and 2299 Views Transaction Activity Node  2299  5 Started by  TracyR I am attempting to update the Purchase From location on PO20 using the transaction activity node. The flow begins with a DME Query to get all applicable records and then proceeds through a branch. Based on the branch logic, the data goes to one of two transaction nodes. If more than one record is found in the query, however, the transaction node is updating only one record (usually the last). I cannot get the flow to update all of the records. Any ideas what I am doing wrong
