Two interactive Manufacturing programs can run in batch mode and accept data from a Z file, allowing you to process mass amounts of data from an outside source easily and efficiently using existing programs to validate the data.
You can process any number of records to add, change, or delete. You also have the advantage of:
Data selection to limit the records you want to process.
Processing options that allow you to choose the version of the interactive program to process the records.
Error report printing.
Generally, the DREAM Writer program number corresponds to the screen and program number with a Z appended to the end. For example, P48013Z corresponds to the Manufacturing Work Order Entry program P48013.
The following table includes the Manufacturing Z file processing programs.
|Program||Program Name||Z File Program||Z File|
|P30061||Work Center Rate Revisions||P30061Z||F30008Z|
|P48013||Manufacturing Work Order Entry||P48013Z||F48013Z|
From Manufacturing Z File Processes (G3001Z), choose Work Center Rates or Work Order Header
Do not change the existing data selection. The Processed Y/N field is set to NE Y. This prevents the program from processing records more than once.
You can add additional selections to limit the data.
Do not change the data sequence.
