In Topic: PROIV function running in the background

20 July 2006 - 04:08 PM


I have run this procedure very effectively using a Unix Crontab firing up say every minute. This can test for the presence of a file and invoke PROIV with a transparent logon. Once the PROIV has completed it must return to OFF which returns control to the Crontab. I also generally run the PROIV procedure in a Batch Queue

In Topic: UPS Address Validation Tool

If this is in the US I have used a file from Zipcode World. I have then created a DB keyed primarily on Zip Code. When an address is entered the Zip Code is entered first and the City can then be selected. The prime info is now 100% (and spelled correctly). The street address then needs to be entered which is not validated. This works very well. I hope this might give you insight into further options.

Hey Scott

I don't know you but I have been working with PRO-IV since 1983 and with SL since its inception. I think that the latter is great and I have had tremendous sussess with it. I think that if PRO-IV had retained the services of Sushil Garg (the Indian author of SL) we would have had a far better product than the crappy VIP that we have today.

It has to do with the SL Menu System. There is a file called SLMSTACK which is keyed on Terminal Number which is used to keep track of all the Screen/Menu functions you visit (so that it can return to the exact starting point). The problem occurs when you "break out" without clearing the record lock. When you then sign on again at the same terminal it gets a record lock.
