    automating p_file_03

    Description:
    What would be the best way to automate p_file_03 to run on the dah## library?
    We would like to have it run nightly and then use a cron to ftp it to the test server.
    It appears from the GUI that it is possible to set it to run at a specific time, but we are unclear about how to get this to happen regularly.

    Is it possible to set it up in the job_list?
    If so, looking at the log files in $alephe_scratch, it appears that the job would be util_a_19_b, but how would the parameters be set in column 7?

    Resolution:
    UTIL-A-19 is "Export library". That job exports all the tables in the library. Its only parameter is the library.

    You would have a job_list entry like this:
    W0 07:35:00 Y ABC50 util_a_19_b ABC50

    p_file_03 will export a single table. You would have a job_list entry like this:
    W0 07:35:00 Y ABC50 p_file_03 ABC50,z36,go
