Data Dictionary Issues?

Well Known Member
JDE List,

I have some questions regarding DD.

I have a power user that made changes to the DD and we removed the dddict
and ddtext files from her computer so they would re-JITI down.

This did not work for all changed items so I built full DD using R92TAM and
copied these to her workstation. Still, not complete success.

What am I doing wrong?

OW B73.3.2 SP11.3
NT 4.0 Enterprise Server
SQL 7.0 with Central Objects
NT 4.0 Deployment Server
"fat" Win98/WinNT and TSE/Citrix "thin" clients

Data Dictionary items are imbedded into the TAM specs for reports,
interactive applications, etc as well. So, if you made changes, you also
have to regenerate any runtime objects with these items and send them out in
a package (or via a JITI, if appropriate) in order to see all the updates...

Also, it's usually a good idea to regenerate or clear the global tables....
(\SPEC\GLBLTBL.DDB & \SPEC\GLBLTBL.XDB) R98CRTGL will build a full runtime
set of global tables...

Hope this helps...

AW: Data Dictionary Issues?

Hi James,

by doing so, the Spec's on the Server's are not updated!!!! The DD-Files are
in the DDDICT,DDTEXT and in the Tables F9200. F9210....
First you have to proceed the R92TAM to build the DD Spec's, and then you
have to populate this Spec's to the Server's using TAMFTP.
After you have done this, each user should JITI down the newest DD Spec's

Kind regards

Bernd Schade

Here is some more additional info on the DD that maybe of use. Note that Mr.
McIlmoyl taught me the CNC course 6 months ago! Here is what I have learned
since.

Never assume that developers know the CNC ins and outs. Our developer
thought that their was a DD in each environment (JDE recommend that one DD
be used), good thing he was not making a lot of changes. If DD changes are
made and you check in the associated objects. First, make sure your PC has
the updated 6 DD and global table files. When deploying your package make
sure that the workstations that are using the updated objects also have the
updated DD/GT files. Same goes for the server package, you will also have to
refresh the files on the enterprise. It will be a good idea to get the files
updated on all workstations. I have not done that yet but I will be looking
to do it soon.

David, let me know if I am 100% right. I don't think it matters if you
refresh the files before or after deployment as long as you do it before
running the new objects.

James,

Be very careful when the DD changes are functional like Next Numbering, Edit Rule, etc. (Hopefully they aren't Data Type, Size and Decimal changes!).
Workstations which first use the DD after Install will JITI and use the changes while the other workstations and the server will use the unchanged DDs until you deploy them via a fresh built package.
It could cause sever problems.
