Options

Options available against a list on the 'Work with Impact Lists' screen are:

3=Copy to Export List: This option will copy the entries on the Impact List to an Export List of the same name. If the Export List does not exist, one will be created. If the Export List does exist, the existing export list entries will be overwritten. This copy requires exclusive use of both lists. You may specify the Target System Type for the export list (for example, AS/400, WIN). A screen requesting confirmation of the copy request is displayed before the copy is performed. The Export List can be worked with using the normal 'Work with list of objects to be exported' option on the Housekeeping Menu.

4=Delete: This option will delete the Impact List and all its entries and associated reasons. A screen requesting confirmation of the request will be displayed before the delete is performed. This action requires exclusive use of the list.

5=Review: This option will display the list entries. The 'Work with List Entries' screen enables entries to be added and deleted. Refer to 5.14.3 Work with Impact List Entries for details. This action requires exclusive use of the list.

6=Print: This option submits a batch job to print the Impact List. The list entries are printed. The reasons associated with each entry may optionally be printed.

7=Copy TaskID: This option allows you to select TaskIDs. Objects in the current partition which have been worked on under the selected Task Ids are added to the impact list. Refer to 5.14.2 Select Task Identifier(s) for details. This action requires exclusive use of the Impact List.

17=Last Action Details: This option will display the Last Action Details for the Impact List. This will show when the list was created and last modified.

32/33=Merge entries/From: 32 must be entered against one list and 33 against a second list. The details from the 33 list will be merged with details on the 32 list. The 33 list will be unchanged. A screen requesting confirmation of the request will be displayed.
