This is extracted from AS/400 Logic Manual (member SSALOG00 in file BPCSDOC) JOB CONTROL THE FIRST EIGHT CHARACTERS OF EACH WORKSTATION ID MUST BE UNIQUE. NOTE: The creation of a Data Area for a workstation job queue assigns a 'Q' prefix to the workstation ID. Any networking protocol which automatically creates device IDs assigning ten characters to it can experience problems when the data area is created. The added prefix will cause the ID to be truncated as it exceeds the ten character limit. If unique device IDs differ by the rightmost character only, truncation of the rightmost character will result in assignment of the same data area to multiple devices. Some networking protocols dynamically assign workstation IDs. If a user signs off, then signs on again, a different workstation ID may be created. Unpredictable results may occur. Fernando.

You can use 10 character workstation names as long as first 9 are unique. BPCS prefixes workstation name with letter "Q" to generate workstation data area. If more than one workstation has the same first 9 letters they will be sharing the same OUTQ and JOBQ settings, which in some shops is not a problem. As far as workstation specific processes such as Shop Order release, Pick Confirm, Billing etc. having 10 characters workstation name is not a problem. Hope this helps.

I know there is a restriction on the length of display device names to a length of 8. My boss has asked me to find a way to allow 10 character device names with the version of BPCS our company is currently on. I can not shorten the device name. That is not an option. (That is what I am currently doing.) What would I neet to change in order to make the software work correctly? We are considering upgrading to V8. Does V8 support 10 character device names?
