    I am trying to create a SN that will show me new job codes added and job codes inactivated in Lawson, and am having trouble setting up the condition to show me the inactivated job codes. The closest condition I've been able to come up with so far is "Tell me if: Data from Active Job Codes List has deleted items". My infoset shows three items: job code, job title, and status, so if any one of the data items changes it will show up in the notification. What I end up with is any job code that has been inactivated (status changes from "A" to "I") which is exactly what I need, but it also shows me when a job title has been changed in some way (a misspelling corrected, for example). I would rather not see these!

    It looks like I should be able to specify on the condition that I only want the "status" item to be evaluated in the "Select from these columns" area on the notifications wizard (I am attempting to attach a print screen to this post), but I don't see any columns to choose from. Should the columns from my infoset be listed here? If so, how do I get them to appear? (Or am I misunderstanding the function of "select from these columns"?)

    I could delete the job title from the infoset, leaving just the job code and the status, but it would be nice to have the job title on the notification.

    Thank you for any suggestions!

    This is a common question. The "has deleted, new, changed items" conditions are very unique and have a lot of applications, unfortunately they are VERY sensitive.

    You could try adding the infoset twice. The first time to include only the item youre watching and the second time including all the other columns you want to display AND the column you are checking. Then add a condition to join the condition and the 2nd multi-fact. then you would only display the last table.
