    Spaces and Underscores Cannot be Entered in form_print_method via AlephADM

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 21

    Problem Symptoms:
    Spaces and underscores cannot be entered in the form_print_method table via AlephADM

    Cause:
    ALPHA_NUM is specified instead of TEXT in columns 1 and 3

    Resolution:
    1. On the server, in the table header, change ALPHA_NUM to TEXT in columns 1 and 3 in ./XXX50/data/form_print_method, for example:
    ! COL 1. 30; TEXT; ;
    ! Form name;
    ! Form name;
    ! COL 2. 2; ALPHA_NUM; ;
    ! Form format;
    ! Form format
    ! If left blank the entry will apply for all formats;
    ! COL 3. 40; TEXT; ;
    ! Print method ;
    ! Print method
    ! EXECUTE <COMMAND> - Use external tool based on alephcom.ini
    ! definition for <COMMAND>
    ! SERVER-EXECUTE <DIRECTORY> - Create the XML file on the
    ! server under /print/<DIRECTORY> ;

    2. After modifying the table?€™s header and before re-opening AlephADM, run util x/7 to delete all UTF files.
    3. Re-start the pc-server (util w/3/3)

    Additional Information

    Fixed in the September 2013 service pack.
