A 405 CDF problem: When we run INV920 to GJW then GLD540 to GJH GJDthis process does not recognize possibility that someone might be in the middle of creating input to a GL batch such as AP#### from ACP500.
So what happens is the work they have done so-far is treated by GL as a complete batch, then when next we do INV920 followed by GLD540 and it is carrying the rest of their input to the same batch, GL error says this is a duplicate batch, already exists, cannot input it.
We are aware of this risk, and have taken steps for people doing different aspects of BPCS to inter-communicate where they are with work that might conflict, but with turn-over, and people doing some tasks they never did before, some of this is not getting communicated, and the rate of problem on the increase again. Basically, many people are experts on the applications they work with, but no one is an expert or Jedi Master on the entire spectrum of BPCS applications.
Do other companies have similar problems, and solutions? What I would like, if doable,some kind of report / inquiry to be run by person about to do INV920 / GLD540 to say "no conflict" or list "conflicts"
I not know for sure if our current mess is thanks to an incomplete ACP500 batch when we post AP & other stuff to GL. I was the person who did the INV920 then GLD540 and when I did so, no one else was signed onto BPCS other than some inquiries. In other words, the ACP500 people TOLD me they were done, and I VERIFIED they no longer on the system , and the end of their day, before I ran this stuff. I used WRKSBSJOB QINTER to make sure no discontinued jobs in the mix.
ACP500 is one of those applications where I not know as much as I would like to. When someone entering ACP500 from menu, does each run of the program create a separate AP#### batch, or does ACP500 person have the option to "suspend" batch they working on, then add to it a later day? If so, what file/member structure should I be looking at to see if there are unfinished AP batches?
