Selecting records for auto start jobs

For some of the auto start jobs, a subset of units of work can be selected via 'Subsystem Job. Select Records' (MNS052). This is useful when more than one instance of a job is needed to increase throughput. For example, one job processes units of work for company 001 and another job processes units of work for company 999.

The selection is performed in 'Subsystem Job. Select Records' (MNS052). On panel B, enter the conditions for the records to be selected.

The 'Select/Omit' (S/O) field indicates if a record is to be selected. 'Select' = Select the records that have field values within (or equal to) the following values. 'Omit' = Omit the records that have field values within (or equal to) the following values.

The 'Selection 1' field shows the lowest and highest value in the current field in order for the record to be selected or omitted for the job. The field can for example contain the value Company.

The 'Selection 2' field shows the lowest and highest value in the current field in order for the record to be selected or omitted for the job. The field can for example contain the value Warehouse.

These rules apply to the conditions specified in this panel:

  1. If nothing is entered in the S/O field, S=Select is used as default value.

  2. If at least one of the entries in the S/O field is O=Omit, everything else is selected.

  3. If at least one of the entries in the S/O field is S=Select, everything else is omitted.

  4. The specified conditions are evaluated from the top and downwards. When a condition is met, no more conditions are evaluated. This is further described by the examples below.

Example 1

Scenario: Select Company 100-110. Omit company 105.

Result: If the current company is 105, it will be selected since the first condition is met. (The second condition is not evaluated.)

Example 2

Scenario: Omit company 105. Select company 100-110.

Result: If the current company is 105, it will be omitted since the first condition is met. (The second condition is not evaluated.)
