I'm trying to run a QAD mfg/pro (running on Progress 10.1) program using mbpro command. I've provided the database, Propath and other startup parameters to my shell script. When I run the script, mbpro runs the .r program. But issue I'm facing is when my program runs through mbpro, it can't find variables like global_db etc. I get the error in the errorfile.err:
Shared variable global_user_lang_dir has not yet been created. (392)
When I run the same program from mfg/pro menu, it runs without issue. Which makes me think that the environment is not loaded with all the information. Do I need to run mf.p along with mbpro to load all environment variables? My script file is as follows:
exec $DLC/bin/mbpro \ sports -p xxtestprogram.r\ -d mdy -yy 1990 -Bt 350 -c 30 -D 100 -mmax 3000 -nb 200 -s 3500 \ > errorfile.err
Yes, you need a program that makes the call, something like this
/*Program xxrun01.p */
OUTPUT TO VALUE(archivo + ".cimin"). PUT UNFORMATTED "someuser thepass" SKIP QUOTER(dominio) SKIP "xxtestprogram.p" SKIP "- - - - yes yes" SKIP /* parameters if need it */ "." SKIP "." SKIP "P" SKIP . OUTPUT CLOSE. INPUT FROM VALUE(archivo + ".cimin") NO-ECHO. OUTPUT TO VALUE(archivo + ".cimou"). RUN mf.p. INPUT CLOSE. OUTPUT CLOSE.
Thanks Marco, but I'm not using CIM. My test program is very simple, that just fetch a sales order record (so nbr hard coded in the query) and save it to txt file. There is no input/ frame or anything else in the program:
output to abc.txt. find first so_mstr no-lock where so_nbr = "123456" no-error. if available so_mstr then do: display so_mstr with 3 columns. end. output close.
