Checking in a process does not update the Function Control Table on iSeries

Abstract:Changes to the Function Control Table in VL not updated on iSeries after checking in Process
Submitted By:LANSA Technical Support

Description:

After making some changes to the Function Control Table i.e. accessible functions, order of display, checking the process into the iSeries will not update the Function Control Table on iSeries

Reason:

The reason for this is that although on the iSeries the Function Control Table is modified by putting option 20 on a process, it is really part of the Function Definition. So, when developing on VL the Function Control Table is not updated until you check in the referring function.

If you only check in the Process the Function Control Table will not be updated. After checking in and compiling the affected functions, the menu sequence and display options are correctly reflected on iSeries.
