I am on 405 CD & here it is a weekend other than end-fiscal-month, so we do
various BPCS/400 computer housekeeping chores when the co-worker mob is off
the system like backup, shop order purge, check security log, etc. plus I
have some loose ends not yet completed from last end month, where some weird
totals still to check out.

I have placed on a separate menu, the weekend reorganization functions, in
the sequence in which we run them:


There are some other reorganization functions we run less often than
weekends, and there are some which can only be run at a particular point in
EOM. For example, immediately after INV900, if we have ample time, are not
doing this over a flakey connection like PC or VPN, and it is not a physical
inventory month,
If these guys are run at any other time, it is an ungodly mess.

Also this weekend, I shall be running SYS120C. I will do it before the shop
order purge, because I have found by experience that without it, the shop
order purge will take 5 hours, but with it, the purge will take 2 hours.
This SYS120 takes about 3/4 of an hour & is also a big help on end fiscal
tasks going faster.

The precise tasks you use to reorganize your BPCS during times when other
people not on the system, will vary with your BPCS version & which
applications are active.

Hi All,

I'm using BPCS 6.1.00
Does anybody know where IWI/WCUSA comes from ..?
I mean which files/ fields have relation with IWI/WCUSA.

I find that BPCS has a program (INV971) to reset WCUSA.
Is this program really needed to run once in a month ?

Thank in advance.
