Block Data Processor
The Block Data Processor (Utilities>Processors>Block Data Processor) is a data collection processor used by S&C for the purpose of populating production tables (i.e. ALLOTMENT_CHANGES_NET ).
If the processor is running (along with the Forecast Processor), then any changes made to a Business Block's Room Grid must be reflected correctly in table ALLOTMENT_CHANGES_NET.
For example, start the Forecast Processor (Utilities>Processors>Forecast Processor) and the Block Data Processor, then make changes to the grid. In this case, 5 rooms are added to room type TK on Day 1 and Day 2. Once the queue is processed by the Forecast and Block Data Processors, issue the following query:
"select * from allotment_changes_net where allotment_header_id = ?? and resort = ??"
The correct room nights and room revenue will display.
