Question: When I try to download a program or print a label the system tells me barcode has not been initialized. What do I do?
MAPCON must be serialized to use barcode. A barcode serialization diskette came with the barcode module. To serialize MAPCON for barcode, follow these steps:
1) You must have SYS9 access or rights to the MAPCON Admin Icon.
2) Access the Admin Icon, Utilities Menu, System Setup Utilities Menu.
Select the, Install Module/Upgrade option.
3) Insert the serialization diskette and click the Process Module/Upgrade option.
4) When finished, logout of MAPCON.
If the error still continues, call your MAPCON Representative. The serial number on the diskette does not match, or does not contain barcode serialization.
The Command window is used to replace TCL (The Command Line) from Advanced Revelation, also known as the Execute a Command window. The Command Window can be used to execute OpenInsight programs, or perform a select group of "TCL like" commands in OpenInsight.
This window is handy for testing queries, selecting data, copying reports or queries, or a variety of other tasks listed below.
Note: You must have a SYS9 security code to access the Command window.
Note: Do not type in the <> characters
ATTACH <volume> <filename>
COPY <filename> <record list . . > TO:( <filename> <record list > (<options>
Record list can use the wild card * to indicate all records. Filename can be set to DOS to copy to and from DOS. Options can be:
O - overwrite
I - Convert field marks to carriage return line feeds when copying to DOS, convert carriage return line feeds to field marks when copying from DOS
D - Delete source record(s)
COPYTABLE <filename> <volume> <account> <filename2> (<options>
<volume>, <account>, and <filename2> are destination names.
<filename2> is optional; filename will be used. Options can be:
O - Overwrite
D - Copy Dictionary File
A - Attach file after copy
CREATETABLE <volume> <filename> <dict flag> <application>
Creates a Revelation Table in the Specified Volume.
<application> is optional, current application is assumed.
<dict flag> is optional, but can be any one of the following:
0 - both data and dictionary are created
1 - only dictionary will be created
2 - only data portion will be created
DELETE <filename> <recordname>
Deletes Revelation Reporter reports. Use this to save disk storage space by removing failed experiments.
<reportname> can be set to '?' to give a lookup of Revelation Reports
DICT <filename> <row1 row2 row3>
Edit, Delete, or Create Dictionary Fields and Symbolics.
Row can be * to edit all dictionary fields from a file.
Use %SL% for row to edit records found with the FS or Select utilities.
EDIT <filename> <record1> <record2> <record3>
Note: More than one record is optional
<record> can be * to edit all records from a file.
Use %SL% for <record> to edit records found with the FS or Select utilities.
<filename> can be DOS to edit operating system files.
If using DOS for <filename>, use <pathname\filename> for <record>
ENTDATE <entity type>
Displays the modifier (entity) and date of the Window or Program.
<entity type> can be "WINDOW" or "PROGRAM".
FIX_GFE <filename> <group or beginning group> <end group>
<end group> is optional. If no <end group>, then only the beginning group will be fixed. If no <group or beginning group> information, then all group GFE's will attempt to be fixed.
FS <filename> <searchstring>
If <filename> is not found as a Table, then it used as a search string.
LH_VERIFY <filename or volumename>
searches for Group Format Errors (which are 'bad' sections of data) in Revelation Files. Run this utility 3 times.
Note: Replace filename with MAPCON, REVBOOT, or TOOLBOX
Choose one filename each time the utility is run. (e.g. LH_VERIFY MAPCON) The Linear Hash Verify utility will take approximately 5-20 minutes to verify the REVBOOT and TOOLBOX, depending upon the speed of the computer doing the verification. However, the MAPCON verification may take over an hour because it searches every database, and for larger amounts of data the process will take longer.
A Linear Hash File Report will be displayed that will either:
1) show 'Zero Rows Processed' which means there are no GFEs
2) OR it will list the name of the file(s) and the Group number(s) with the error(s) in it.
If any GFEs are discovered, use the procedure FIX_GFE.
Lists the dictionary entries for <filename>; sorted by record position.
LISTDICT <filename> BY NAME
Lists the dictionary for <filename>; sorted by the field names in the file.
Listing of attached files.
Listing of all media within volume.
RI <file> <field> <mode>
Rebuild, Add, or Delete indexes from a file.
Field can be:
* - for all fields in rebuild or delete mode
? - for a lookup of possible fields
Mode can be:
A - Add index
D - Delete index
R - Rebuild index (default)
SETFILE <volumename> <account> <filename> <aliasname>
SORT <filename> BY-DSND
BY-DSND is optional. Include BY-DSND after the filename to sort in descending order.
Use this utility to check a table for multi-valued records.
If any are found, a message box will prompt if you want to rename the record. Say Yes everytime. The record key will be changed (flagged) to include an F in it, and can be deleted if desired.
