Changing Data Records
If you change records that have already been approved, the systemcancels the original record and creates a new record. The originalrecord can be identified for this purpose using the internal counter or an external document number.
If you enter an external document number for the original record, the
EXTSYSTEM, EXTAPPLICATION, and EXTDOCUMENTNO fields in the CATSDB tableare filled. If you change this record, it is identified via theEXTSYSTEM_OLD, EXTAPPLICATION_OLD, and EXTDOCUMENTNO_OLD fields. Thenew record is assigned a new document number via the EXTSYSTEM, EXTAPPLICATION, and EXTDOCUMENTNO fields.
If the records to be changed have not yet been approved, they are simply overwritten.
Posting Data Records
When you post records using this method, you should note that onlyrecords that do not contain errors are posted. If an error occurs during posting, none of the data - including records that do not
contain errors - is posted. You should, therefore, schedule data to beposted as often as possible and include only a small number of records in each posting.
You should also note that, when posting begins, all numeric fields notin use must be set to initial, that is you must fill all characters of the relevant fields with "0".
Messages are returned in the parameter return. The parameterdocumentation shows the return codes and their meanings.
