    Additional order no.2 does not displaying the correct value

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 18.01

    Description:
    Recently we added the

    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Order No. 2 10 013 01 C02 z68-order-number-2

    to the ODN01 pc_tab_col.eng, thinking this should work in v18.


    ABC01 pc_tab_col.eng has this:

    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Index 01 025 01 C04 z79-text
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Order No. 02 013 01 C02 z68-order-number
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Order No. 1 10 013 01 C02 z68-order-number-1
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Order No. 2 10 013 01 C02 z68-order-number-2
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Title 11 000 01 C02 related title
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Rec. No. 03 015 01 C02 z79-doc-number
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Vendor 04 017 01 C02 z71-vendor-code
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Status 05 008 01 C02 z68-order-status
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Status Date 06 020 01 C02 z68-status-date
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Target ID 07 000 01 C02 z68-target-id
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Target name 08 000 01 C02 z68-target-text
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Type 09 000 01 C02 z68-order-type

    The staff say they don't see in the Order no. 2 column the text that is in the order record in order no. 2.

    Resolution:
    As described in KB 4087, you can not add columns to pc_tab_col.eng.

    Though the usm50 pc_tab_col.eng has a line with "Order No. 2" in column 3 and "10" in column 4:

    ! 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10
    !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!-!!-!!!-!!-!!!-!!-!!!-!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    PC_ACQ_INDEX L Order No. 2 10 000 01 C02 z68-order-number-1

    we see -- from the text in column 10 ("z68-order-number-1") -- that defined element #10 is *not* z68_order_number_2 but rather z68_order_number_1.

    If z68_order_number_2 were to be added to pc_tab_col.eng, it would be described as "Order No. 3", but there is no such line in pc_tab_col.eng -- and no provision for such an element in the pc_acq_c0509.cbl program which produces this display.
