Report Caster Kill Switch with Multiple Tasks - solved
 Login/Join

I am setting up a new RC job with multiple tasks that needs to run on the fifth business day of the month. If I am using &&KILL_RPC to stop a process do I need to add it to every task? Is it better to use a preprocessing routine or to add the code to the program?


Here's the solution ===>

I set up a couple programs and tested them in Report Caster. What I found was that the &&KILL_RPC routine needs to be a preprocessing routine rather than an -INCLUDE in the program and that every task requires it. When I put it in only one task, my second task still ran. When I added the code to the progam, the program still executed.
