0 Replies and 2316 Views DME Connection Error with user Lawson  2316  0 Started by  David Williams If you're getting one of those annoying DME connection error with user lawson messages when running your flow on the server but it works just fine within PF Designer then I have a possible solution for you (I just discovered this for a client). If the DME has a SELECT statement with an Escape character (3D for the = character) then replace it with the normal character. Replace SELECT=STATUS3D1 with SELECT=STATUS=1 When I did this my DME call worked on the server.

1 Replies and 1822 Views Limiting file/data iterator to the contents ofa file  1822  1 Started by  Brian Berenger I have a flow that reads line by line from a file and then process it.&160; The problem is that I have to specify the number of lines in my file in the 'maximum read iterations' field.&160; If I don't specify this value, pflow loops through my file continuously.&160; I can't find any obvious way to have pflow stop once it reaches the end of the source file.&160; How do I fix this TIA Brian

By this I mean, we normally have approvers that are within HR, Benefits, Budget etc. One of our current processes is requiring that supervisors (all supervisors) have in-baskets to approve training classes. We have 45,000 employees and I am wondering what the magnitude of that would be if they have to go to a portal page to access their in-baskets I was told t...
