    Additions to aleph_start not taking effect

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 16 and up


    Adding a "setenv new_ue_01 Y" line in aleph_start leads not to use of the new ue_01. Why is it?


    The "echo" command can be used to test the current value of a variable:

    > echo $new_ue_01

    The result in the affected environment is "undefined variable".

    Lines added in aleph_start need to be before the "exit" line. Here it is:

    setenv due_date_format 1
    setenv user_list_aleph_local Y


    # Added by table conversion

    setenv new_ue_01 Y

    The Upgrade Express is placing the setenv's it is adding after the exit. This means that they are not in effect. Anything after the exit, will not actually be executed.
