Mike,
Don't trouble yourself. I worked it out and it was simply:
update amflibe/itembl
set ltpur = (LTVEN+LTSAF)
where house = 1
and vndnr = '900155'
(the last two lines not being completely necessary).

Regards,

Bryan

Mike,
I'd very much appreciate the syntax for setting the LTPUR.
Thanks!

You learned a valuable lesson without paying much for it.





Be VERY cautious about updating MAPICS tables with SQL. It can be
done,


but only if you are CERTAIN you are performing all the logic that MAPICS


would do when you type in a green-screen or browser window and press
enter.








Safe way to do this with a program is with SystemLink (oops - just
reread


you're on 5.5 - no Syslink). It performs all the logic that MAPICS does


(since it IS MAPICS). If you do something with SQL, you'll need to


replicate the logic.


In your case, comletely fixable, just update the records by using an
UPDATE


and set LTPUR=LTVEN+LTSAF.


Let me know if you need help with the syntax - I have to look it up but
I


have one like it.


Mike

subject: [MAPICS-L] LTPUR not recalculated after changing ITEMBL with


SQL





In an XA5.5 test environment, I updated LTVEN and LTSAF using SQL; but


LTPUR has not been re-calculated for those items I updated.





I went into ITEMBL file maintenace on a record and I was able to get
it


re-calculated that way.





Two questions:





1. This was my first accomplishment using SQL to do an update and I'd
like


to know if I did any damage, and what other file/fields can be damaged
with


even the most careful use of SQL?





2. How can I automagically get the LTPUR recalculated for about 130


records?
