We also have a DD that locks only the quantity when the status is changed to released without any problems with MRP.

We have a DD on the JobHead table that locks the quantity when the status is changed to Released. It has caused no problem with MRP to date.

For the life of me I can’t remember if I had a standard or in-transaction on the jobhead, and all I was doing was updating a shortchar field and when MRP ran it really hosed the demand links, it was making coparts and all kinds of crazy stuff. Working with support they said the developers told them don’t put DD on the jobhead table. Now I don’t know if that’s just some standard response type thing or what. I didn’t have time to shake it out so I removed the DD and my issues went away. Just a heads up…test thoroughly.

This is timely for us. Right now we are considering a data directive bpm to limit who can edit and save locked checkbox on job header. This is because we have discovered that Scheduling boards allow job locking and the people who can review the scheduling board are not necessarily who can lock a job.



Rob, is the concern ANY data directive on jobhead?



Thanks

If you run mrp don't put a data directive on jobhead...that's really bad

A Data Directive sounds like the easiest way by far for this.

FYI - I have found myself using Data Directives more than BPM's.

BPM are great if you need a trigger on an event - Evaluates Methods

Data Directives are great is you need a trigger based on a data value changing - Evaluates Data

Most of our jobs are Released through Job Entry. So I needed to created two BPMs.



One on GetNewJob for any new job created from scratch and the other on Update when FIRM changes from any to any.

It can be done via customization (we started out like that) but it is yet another drag on client app performance. BPM is the way to go.



SC could handle it as well (or DMT - but that is defintely not a user tool).

For the majority of jobs, I just click the box manually since we couldn't find a way to set it as a default or make it a mass update in the Job Status Maintenance screen. When I have a large group of jobs to lock the quantity and change the priority I use an outside Macro Keystroke Recorder program. Record it once and play it back 468 times!

You would have to do it through customizations….

 

But a data directive would be the easiest quickest solution.

 

Data directive on the jobhead table:

 

For each ttjobhead no-lock:

 

Assign ttjobhead.lockqty = true.

 

End.

Without a BPM can get pretty tricky depending on how Epicor is creating/setting the data. From a screen customization some things just can’t be overridden from what I have experienced.  Is there a specific reason you can’t use a BPM?

Maybe set the form to auto populate the field - ie:

 

            Private Sub edvSchedControl_EpiViewNotification(ByVal view As EpiDataView, ByVal args As EpiNotifyArgs)

                        ' ** Argument Properties and Uses **

                        ' view.dataView(args.Row)("FieldName")

                        ' args.Row, args.Column, args.Sender, args.NotifyType

                        ' NotifyType.Initialize, NotifyType.AddRow, NotifyType.DeleteRow, NotifyType.InitLastView, NotifyType.InitAndResetTreeNodes

                        If (args.NotifyType = EpiTransaction.NotifyType.Initialize) Then

                                    If (args.Row > -1) Then

                                                view.dataView(args.Row)("LockQty") = TRUE

                                    End If

                        End If

            End Sub

For the majority of jobs, I just click the box manually since we couldn't find a way to set it as a default or make it a mass update in the Job Status Maintenance screen.  When I have a large group of jobs to lock the quantity and change the priority I use an outside Macro Keystroke Recorder program.  Record it once and play it back 468 times!

It can be done via customization (we started out like that) but it is yet another drag on client app performance. BPM is the way to go.
 
SC could handle it as well (or DMT - but that is defintely not a user tool).

Most of our jobs are Released through Job Entry. So I needed to created two BPMs.

 

One on GetNewJob for any new job created from scratch and the other on Update when FIRM changes from any to any.

A Data Directive sounds like the easiest way by far for this.

FYI - I have found myself using Data Directives more than BPM's.

BPM are great if you need a trigger on an event - Evaluates Methods

Data Directives are great is you need a trigger based on a data value changing  - Evaluates Data

 This is timely for us.  Right now we are considering a data directive bpm to limit who can edit and save locked checkbox on job header.  This is because we have discovered that Scheduling boards allow job locking and the people who can review the scheduling board are not necessarily who can lock a job. 

 

Rob, is the concern ANY data directive on jobhead?

For the life of me I can’t remember if I had a standard or in-transaction on the jobhead, and all I was doing was updating a shortchar field and when MRP ran it really hosed the demand links, it was making coparts and all kinds of crazy stuff. Working with support they said the developers told them don’t put DD on the jobhead table. Now I don’t know if that’s just some standard response type thing or what. I didn’t have time to shake it out so I removed the DD and my issues went away. Just a heads up…test thoroughly.

Subject: [Vantage] Can I somehow just set JobHead.LockQty to True without a BPM





Just like a default.

We have a DD on the JobHead table that locks the quantity when the status is changed to Released.  It has caused no problem with MRP to date.

For the life of me I can’t remember if I had a standard or in-transaction on the jobhead, and all I was doing was updating a shortchar field and when MRP ran it really hosed the demand links, it was making coparts and all kinds of crazy stuff. Working with support they said the developers told them don’t put DD on the jobhead table. Now I don’t know if that’s just some standard response type thing or what. I didn’t have time to shake it out so I removed the DD and my issues went away. Just a heads up…test thoroughly.

This is timely for us. Right now we are considering a data directive bpm to limit who can edit and save locked checkbox on job header. This is because we have discovered that Scheduling boards allow job locking and the people who can review the scheduling board are not necessarily who can lock a job.



Rob, is the concern ANY data directive on jobhead?



Thanks

A Data Directive sounds like the easiest way by far for this.

FYI - I have found myself using Data Directives more than BPM's.

BPM are great if you need a trigger on an event - Evaluates Methods

Data Directives are great is you need a trigger based on a data value changing - Evaluates Data

It can be done via customization (we started out like that) but it is yet another drag on client app performance. BPM is the way to go.



SC could handle it as well (or DMT - but that is defintely not a user tool).

For the majority of jobs, I just click the box manually since we couldn't find a way to set it as a default or make it a mass update in the Job Status Maintenance screen. When I have a large group of jobs to lock the quantity and change the priority I use an outside Macro Keystroke Recorder program. Record it once and play it back 468 times!

Without a BPM can get pretty tricky depending on how Epicor is creating/setting the data. From a screen customization some things just can’t be overridden from what I have experienced. Is there a specific reason you can’t use a BPM?

We also have a DD that locks only the quantity  when the status is changed to released without any problems with MRP.
