Prelude Support / Scheduler
« Last post by DonQuixote on June 19, 2019, 03:47:58 pm »
The scheduler appears to be running an earlier version of a process/program.  I have stopped and restarted the scheduler and the deleted and re-entered the entry.  Running the slash command runs the latest version but running the same entry in the scheduler runs a older version.  Why is this happening?
Prelude Support / output options
« Last post by DonQuixote on April 30, 2019, 08:52:50 am »
To my understanding there are two output selection methods.
Report writer uses OUTPUT.REDIRECT
(Screen / Print / Aux / Dif / Email / Fax / exceL)
"Output To Print/Email/Fax (P/E/A)"

I am trying to understand and change the options that are shown.
The first, I was able to follow that path of processes but I having no luck on the second.
Can you guide me through the path where the options are being shown?

fileview -p1 filename

This will return information about the file.  Here's a script function that will return files over 1.5G that are 32-bit:

find_big_files() {
        for i in `find . -size +1500M`;do
                BIT32=`fileview -p1 $i | grep "32-bit"`
                if [[ -n "$BIT32" ]];then
                        echo $i

Sorry, I don't know anyone that uses this.  But I've been trying to get some information from ROI for a few weeks now and I'm not exactly impressed with the way he does business.
Prelude Support / VertexMV to Vertex Returns
« Last post by DonQuixote on April 05, 2019, 09:00:21 am »
VertexMV is a menu of programs developed by ROI Syngineering for Sales Tax within Prelude using Vertex L-series tax tables.
One of the options is the Quantum Returns menu that takes the VTXREG (Tax Register) and bundles the data into a TAX2000 file to upload to your PC to be used by the Vertex Sales Tax Returns program.  Has anyone successfully used this process?????????? 
ROI Syngineering claims his mv clients successfully use this process; that doesn't mean Prelude customers.
Is there anyone with knowledge of this process?
U2 Programming Questions / File types 32Bit & 64bit
« Last post by DonQuixote on February 19, 2019, 02:25:13 pm »
We have learned the wonderful benefits of 64bit static files; no size limitation and greater speed.
All of our maintenance reports are searching for files approaching the 2GB size so that we can change them to dynamic.
With 64bit static files that is no longer necessary.   The problem is how to identify a 64bit files from a 32bit static files.
I asked Prelude and they said the only way is running 'guide' the first item indicates standard or 64bit file type in GUIDE_STATS.LIS
Does anyone have a better way to identify file type?

I just spoke to someone about 6.4.1.  They were having a problem with exports to Excel with Prelude using that version.  6.5.4 is the latest I believe.

Yes, I tried switching the transfer protocol between SBZ and ftp. 
Though ftp worked the program did not return to the menu but ended at TCL.
An internet search suggested upgrading the SBClient to the current version v6.4.1
And yes, that fixed the problem!
Of course, things must be done properly and done in the right order.
Un-install old version, restart the computer, and install the new version.

Excellent, so glad you figured that out!

Really, any of that (network, upgrades, Unix, etc.) could be responsible for the timeout.  Have you tried changing between the SBZ and FTP transfer modes?  If you're using FTP, has the user's password changed recently?
