    Control Language and Staff Privileges for Order Units

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

    We have begun to enter our budget allocations in Aleph. I had to change staff privileges for budgets.
    When I click on Staff Privileges (bottom right Key icon) > select staff user > click Order Units button > Choose Administrative Library, I get an error message (Communication error global-11 : Library's host not defined in library.ini).
    This works on Test, but not Production.

    The following variable needed to be updated in alephe/aleph_start:
    setenv control_lng FRE

    The reason it worked on Test and not Production was because the tab_sub_library.eng on Test had some XXX50 content so there was content to display.
    On Production, there was no tab_sub_library.eng content and it was trying to read that table instead of the tab_sub_library.fre table which did have content.

    Although this works without the following setting it’s good to remember that the following setting should be configured in *all* prof_library files:
    set_symbol CON_START FRE (or whatever the language)
