Yes, System-Link will perform all of the updates that are handled by Power-Link or Net-Link. If you have added extensions to the object using Enterprise Integrator, System-Link will handle the extensions. It is the preferred "off-line" interface.

As for an RPG program, there is what we call the Local Program Interface for System-Link (See System-Link Guide) that makes it easy for RPG programs to submit SL requests. The LPI handles all of the technical requirements you just pass the request in the parameters and it will return you the response. There may even be sample programs in the Integrator Samples directory of the XA IFS folder.

Good Morning, and thank you to everyone that has responded. I have used offline load processes in the past. However it may not take care of the new Infor extensions files, I don't know for sure. I do know that it would not take care of any secondary user files added through integrator. I believe that SystemLink is designed to handle files that have been linked through integrator. So I could use offline load and then write programs to handle our user data, but I'd like to start getting familiar with how to work with SystemLink. Which is why I was looking for a simple working sample. I will ultimately also need to delete BOM, routing, pricing, and item revision for this same set of items. Thanks again to everyone for your input and ideas.

I have about 80,000 items in multiple warehouses that I need to delete. I have a file with the item number and warehouse. I'd like to build an RPG program that could run in batch that would read this file and execute a system link request to delete the item warehouse record.

I am wondering if anyone has this or a similar RPG program they might be willing to share.

Doug
