Re: MAPICS-L Digest, Vol 12, Issue 21

For what my opinion is worth, I believe what Michael has done is a great
service to the XA community as a whole, and he is not selling a service to
anyone via this mailing list. 99.9% of the people on this list probably
aren't in Germany, which is where Michael does provide services.  But
outside of these videos demonstrating that Michael and his team know what
they are talking about, it is in no way a sales pitch.

I know I don't get to vote, but I strongly suggest Michael be allowed to
post these links as a huge favor to all XA customers.  Preferably with
thanks from everyone for providing so much value to us all.

multiple item codes same item

Hi List.
I am hoping someone out there can point me in a direction.

We currently have a product for our example lets call it ABC we buy this
product from 3 vendors. In order to track costs and different package sizes
we currently have multiple item codes on the system for it.
We will put the package size and the vendor into the item code. But really
they are the same physical item.

So it would like this:
ABC-55CE
ABC-55GL
ABC-16BBCE
ABC-16BBGL

We are now running into a lot of issues with this. We are looking for a way
to streamline this into a way we can just have ABC in the computer and then
select the package size and vendor instead of making them part of the item
code.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Jeff Williams

Re: XML-INTO - new to this...

Hi,

I'm working on a System-Link POC and I have found the source for a program that does the standard XML parsing. 
It is USRLPI1R in source file #PSIMQSSMP in AMXLIBx.  I have not used it yet, but I was interested in whether
the "sessionHandle" and "workHandle" have a fixed length.  With this "Procedure" it may resolve our
problems.  Have a look at it.

Regards,

XML-INTO - new to this...

Hello all, 

This has me tearing my hair out on a weekend...  Boo.

I'm attempting to parse some XML. I'm trying to use the new(er) opcodes as opposed to the old string methods. 
I thought it was/is the most straightforward you can imagine...

I'm trying to pull the 'true' value out of the LoginResponse attribute.

Here's the XML... (Yes, it's MAPICS) 

<?xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'?>
<System-Link version='1.0' hostVersion='1.0'>
	<LoginResponse actionSucceeded='true'>
		<SessionHandle value='-3369e2f8:1445eea302e:-799f'/>
	</LoginResponse>
	<Response sessionHandle='-3369e2f8:1445eea302e:-799f'
workHandle='-3369e2f8:1445eea302e:-799e' systemTimestamp='2014-02-28 20:54:41.668' systemTimeZoneOffset='-6:00'>
		<UpdateResponse name='updateObject_ItemRevision' actionSucceeded='true'/>
	</Response>
</System-Link>

Here's my code... (variable "rpns" is my xml)

     D* Local fields
     D retField        S               N   inz(*off)
     D LoginResponse   DS                  qualified
     D  action...
     D  Succeeded                    10

MAPICS Release 6 and IBM OS400 V7.1

I was wondering if anyone has attempted to run MAPICS XA Release 6 on a I series machine at OS400 V7.1?
We have attempted this feat on 3 different LPARS and have found that the MAPICS Client will not perform
certain "COPY" functions for Purchase Orders and Items. I realize that we are treading on ground that
INFOR specifically says not to, but we are pretty close to getting this migration to work. Since we cannot
look at the Smalltalk data and the actual SQL statements, we were wondering if anyone has possibly
developed a way to get past this? We definitely do not want to have to reinvent the wheel here....

Thanks in advance,

Engineering Change Notice Software

We're looking for software to help us manage our Engineering Change Notice process.  Ideally, it would
contain the following:

1.       A portal where users can submit a request and check it's status

2.       Work flow processes (ability to assign tasks, track approvals, send informational emails)

3.       A searchable database for past history

4.       Integration with XA  (Pulling data to help supply the ECN forms & searchable from within XA objects)

5.       Easy to design and modify

Any suggestions?  Thanks
