Hi Bob.
Interesting. So do you not support Chinese characters (DBCS) in your China mapics environment? Or do you have your primary O/S configured to be English Double Byte? Thanks

Jeff

In our case, we have a plant in Europe and one in China both running from a box in the US with no adjustment to the time or date. It's less than optimal from the viewpoint of the two plants, but they have become used to it, and it doesn't appear to cause any ongoing problems.

We do have them running in separate MAPICS environments to help us with scheduling backups and other batch processes.

Thanks,

Subject: [MAPICS-L] AS/400 Locale

I am working on a project to bring up a site we have in the UK on our US
based MAPICS system.



Our AS/400 resides in the US Eastern Time Zone. When UK users sign on
I'd like the presented time to be their local time, along with other
things.



I've implemented a LOCALE and have been able to change the date format
and some other things. But in the LC_TOD section the TZDIFF functions
doesn't effect the time being presented to the user. Has anyone done
this?



Thanks

Doug
