Update Versions

There are four areas to discuss when we talk about updating versions:

  • Version details;
  • Processing options;
  • Data selection;
  • Data sequencing.

Except for data sequencing, all these update areas have a cross version, multiple version enabled user interface.

Update Version Details

The Select button from the OMW Projects tab of the Version Workbench main screen will open the Version Revision screen for a single version or the Versions Revision screen that allows you to revise version details across versions in the grid. Here is the single Version Revision screen:

Update details for single version

And here is the grid enabled multiple Versions Revision screen:

Update details for multiple versions

Both screens have batch version specific details available or displayed only for checked out batch versions. The multiple Versions Revision screen offers wildcarded ‘Find and Replace’ / ‘Replace All’ functionality for the version description.

Update processing options

Using rowexit Processing Options from the OMW Projects tab of the Version Workbench main screen will open the standard Processing Option dialog if an individual version was selected. If a project or version template node was selected, the PO Mass Update screen will be opened after you have confirmed the generation of a working Freezepoint for the detected number of versions popup screen:

Instant Freezepoint Generation Dialogue
Maintain Processing Options in a Grid screen

The grid is QBE enabled and Visual Assist functionality is supported though a clickable visual assist form or UDC specification in a separate grid column. There is wildcarded ‘Find and Replace’ / ‘Replace All’ functionality available. Any changes in the grid are indicated by a clickable Reset value in the most left column which will undo the grid change for that grid line. The actual Processing Option updates will take place in the login environment after the OK button is pressed.

Update Data Selection

Using rowexit Data Selection from the OMW Projects tab of the Version Workbench main screen will open the standard Data Selection dialog if an individual batch version was selected. If a project node or version template node was selected, the DS Literal Mass Update screen will be opened after you have confirmed the generation of a working Freezepoint for the specified number of batch versions popup screen:

Maintain Data Selection in a grid screen

This screen only offers data selection lines with a literal value specification for update. The literal value update supports special values and conversions between Single Value, Range of Values and List of Values. There is a syntax specified for these purposes which is also displayed in the error message glossary:

  • Special Values: <Zero>, <Blank>, <Null> and <Null Date>
  • Single Value: ‘value’
  • Range of Values: ‘value bottom’ .. ‘value top’
  • List of Values: ‘value1′,’value2’,’value3’…

For date literals the same formats appy for Single, List and Range. In addition, the date format is MM/DD/YYYY.

The grid is QBE enabled and there is wildcarded ‘Find and Replace’ / ‘Replace All’ functionality available. Any changes in the grid are indicated by a clickable Reset value in the most left column which will undo the grid change for that grid line. The actual Data Selection updates will take place on the local specs in the login environment after the OK button is pressed.
