    (ASP) Printing or viewing results after running p_ret_01

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Description:
    We are an ASP site (without ssh access to our server). I just ran p_ret_01 for the first time and the batch log indicated success. However, I am not clear on the next step, where I would like to view, and possibly print, the results.

    I thought one of the options was to use one of the print services, but when I tried that using the name of the file I had created in the first process, I got an error message stating that the file does not exist.

    Resolution:
    While p_ret_01 writes its output to $alephe_scratch, p_print_03 and the other print jobs read their input from $data_scratch. The output from p_ret_01 is a list of record numbers.

    I have changed the $aleph_proc/p_ret_01 procedure to also write the output to both $data_scratch (where it will be available for input to the p_print jobs) and $data_print (where you can view it).

    But this requires that one of the following be used as the outfile name:

    p_ret_01_outfile1
    p_ret_01_outfile2
    p_ret_01_outfile3
    p_ret_01_outfile4
    p_ret_01_outfile5

    As long as you use one of these names, it should work.
