Subject: e-Arranging a spool file
HI I have a report that is printing by Invoice number. It is used as a kind of picking/packing sheet by the warehouse. What they would like would be to print the report by Model number for efficiency.
Since this is an old cycle RPG report I am hesitant to change the structure of the program. I would rather look at the spool file and get the model number and redo the order.
I was wondering if this is an easy task to do.
The other option I guess would be to add a work file to the program and as a separate report print the recap of what is needed to be picked. But I think they would prefer not to be cluttered with yet another stack of papers.
