Specify Objects

Unofficial Content

Allows you to select the object to specify.


Shows a list of the selected objects.
Add: This button will call the Select Object dialog to include more objects in the specification.

Add Called: This button add all the objects in the called tree.
Remove: This button removes the highlighted object from the list of objects to be specified.
Indicates what type of specification you want to perform:
Full Specification: This is the normal specification. It generates a specification report and compares it with the last report that was generated to see if the object has experienced changes. If there are no changes, it won't be necessary to generate the program.
Check Specification: This type of specification checks if the program source or tables used by the object have changed. If changes have been detected, then a full specification of the object will be performed.

It is very important to take note that the date of the machine must always be correct, if not, this mechanism will not work or even worse it will function incorrectly.
Force Generation: The force specification does not check if the object or tables used by it have changed, it always specifies and generates the object.
View Last Navigation: Allows you to view the last specification report that was generated. This option avoids having to enter specification times again, since it may consume a lot of time, and it allows you to analyze a program which has been specified by another user.
Other Options
Detailed Navigation: You may whether you want to make use of a detailed navigation (only for transactions).

Specify & Generate: You want to automatically generate the programs after the specification.
