CIF in AB or INV


Active Member
Does anybody know how the fields Exist Pgm/File in the fold of the CIF
Table work? I have searched the knowledge garden and read the manual and
nothing defines or explains these fields. I called JDE and they have no
explanation either.

The theory behind this was explained to me some years ago as allowing validation against data values in an external file, rather than simply in a UDC table. I've never tried it though - so good luck!

CIF was a relational data bases in the AS400 RPG world originally created in the HR
system. You can define new UDC's, non UDC's codes, or narrative attached to A/B or
Item Master records. We have used the CIF as a receptical file for converting legacy
information into that did not fit within the standard a/b or item master file. As
for setup, suggest using the JDE documentation CD for A7.3 or A8.1 and look in HR
system. If you have additional questions call me at 303-810-2344. Cheers.
