ACTIVE ARCHIVE

The archive that is currently in use.


ARCHIVE
    This word has two meanings
    1.  A place in which public records or historical documents are preserved
    2.  A date range of reports that are stored in a subfolder.
TOP


ACCESS CONTROL LIST (ACL)

         Is a list of Archives with reports in each Archive that will enable the user to see only the reports that are defined.

TOP



AFTERLINE

         This is used to specify a line# in which to begin checking for key extractions after.  There is only one parameter which is the line#.
           Example:  AFTERLINE 6
           KEY 2 6 Customer#
TOP



ANDCOL, ORCOL, ANDNOTCOL, ORNOTCOL
These are used in addition to WHENCOL, and/or WHENNOTCOL.  Only one ANDCOL, ORCOL, ANDNOTCOL, or ORNOTCOL may be used with each WHENCOL or WHENNOTCOL.
Caution should be exercised when using ORNOTCOL with WHENCOL, or ORCOL with WHENNOTCOL due to complexities of logic when using a NOT condition in an OR situation (in other words you may not properly calculate all of the possibilities of the given logic).
TOP


ARCHIVE DESCRIPTION
This is then name of the Archive that the Users Select in Client Mode.
TOP


ARCHIVE NUMBER
    When selecting an archive, the archive at the top is archive #1. The archives are numbered in sequence. The next one would be archive #2.
TOP


ARCHIVE PASSWORD
When in use the users will be prompted for a password in order to gain access to the Archive.
TOP


ARCHIVED
    This indicates that the reports have been copied to the directory defined by the optipath statement
TOP


AUTO START LVFTP
Tells LVUS to automatically start LVFTP when starting.
TOP


AUTO START LVLPD
Tells LVUS to automatically start LVLPD when starting.
TOP


AUTO START SPOOLER
This tells LVUS to automatically start the print spooler when starting.
TOP


AUTO UPDATE UNIVERSAL CLIENT
This option allows you to update windows clients more easily. Say for instance, that all your users are using LaserVault Universal Client version 4.05 and you want to update them to 4.06.

To do this, simply turn this option on, specify the path to the new install file, and enter the new version # (the version you are updating to). The next time a user logs on they will see a message indicating that they need an update if their client version is different from what is specified in this field.

TOP


AUTOMATICALLY BACKUP AFTER DOWNLOAD
Selecting this option tells LaserVault to automatically start the backup procedure when "LVPRCRPT" is run on the host.  This option is only valid when using LVLPD.
TOP


AUTHORIZATION CODE
You will need to register the server with Electronic Storage Corporation before you will be able to log in. To get an authorization code, press the "Serial Number" button. Contact Electronic Storage Corp at 800-444-6283 or send an e-mail to register@elstore.com with your company name, phone number and contact.
TOP


BACKUP TOP


BACKUP PROGRAM
This specifies the program to run for backing up the archive.  In most cases, you will want to use LVBACKUP.EXE which is provided with LaserVault.

Example: LVBACKUP #OPTIPATH #BACKUPPATH #WORKPATH

TOP


BACKUPPATH
    This defines where an archive (OPTIPATH) is to be copied to for backup purposes. LV is designed to make a "mirror" image of an optical cartridge onto another optical cartridge by insuring that the same date directories exist on both.
TOP


BASEPATH
    Where the reports will be downloaded. This is the directory where the indexing and compressing takes place.


BUILD REPORT CROSS REFERNECE
Checking this option will build report cross references. This option allows a user to select a report and see which dates that report can be found in.
TOP


BUILD REPORT CROSS INDEXES
If you wish to build Key Cross References, you specify the 8 character DOS names of the reports in this field. Key Cross References allow a user to do a search for a value across multiple dates. For example, you're looking for a credit card number but don't know what date the value might occur on. Up to 25 reports per archive can be key cross referenced.
Example: CDTB, INV301
TOP


CD-ROM
    Compact Disk- Read Only Memory. This disk will look just a disk played in a music CD player. Used for long term storage of your reports.
TOP


CHANGING A USER
To change a user, select the user's name from the list, make the desired changes and press update.
TOP


CLEARFLAGS
This is used to clear the effects of any preceding modifier statements such as NOREPEAT, AFTERLINE, ONLYLINE, WHENCOL, WHENNOTCOL.
TOP


CLOSE THE DISK
    Before the disk is full, zero bytes free, the xarc directories need to be copied to the working disk. This is done with the backxref command
TOP

COMPRESSING
    Reduces the size of your reports which saves space on your optical disk. This allows more reports to fit on the optical disk. Compression is done after the index and before the update.
TOP

CROSS INDEXES
    Allows you to search a report, based on the key, across all dates. See buildxindex
TOP

CROSS REFERENCE
    Allows displaying only the dates that a given report is archived to.
TOP


DMY DATE FORMAT
Causes LaserVault to display dates in the dd-mm-yyyy format rather than mm-dd-yyyy.
TOP


DOWNLOAD
    The act of sending reports to the LaserVault PC.
TOP


FASTX
Checking this option, causes LaserVault to update cross reference information only for the date being archived. If this option is unchecked, LaserVault will re-build the entire cross reference each time an update is performed.
TOP


FILE
This defines the report file that all of the preceding statements apply to.  There are 2 parameters for this statement, the DOS file name, and up to 40 characters of description for the report to be stored for LV to use.  The DOS file name is only the 8 character base name, the file must have a .RPT for the extension for LV to recognize it.

Example:  FILE WKINV Weekly Invoices

TOP


GLOBAL INDEXES
Checking this option enables global indexes.  Press the "Global Index Config" button to start the Global Index Generator in Config Mode.
TOP


HARD DRIVE
    The internal magnetic drive. The primary drive is drive C:. This drive contains the operating system boot up information and is typically where the today directories are maintained.
 TOP


INDEXING
    This builds the file, repname and the .rpx files.
TOP


KEEP LOGS
This tells LVUS how many days to keep it's log files. In the directory where the server is installed, you will find sub-directories called LVUSLOGS, LPDLOGS, and FTPLOGS.
TOP


KEY
This defines the location on every line to extract data for a key value to be inserted into the index file. There are 3 parameters - beginning column, key length, and up to 20 characters of key description.

Example:  KEY 2 6 Customer#

TOP


KEYP
This defines the location on a specific line to extract data for a key value to be inserted into the index file.

There are 4 parameters - beginning line#, beginning column, key length, and key description.  Only one key value will be extracted per report page.

Example:  KEYP 4 2 6 Customer#

TOP


KEYSEG, KEYEND
These two statements are used in conjunction with each other.  These are used to define a key which is made of multiple segments or values. The parameters are the same as the KEY statement.  NOTE:  During a key lookup, LV will position to the last portion of the key segment.

Restrictions:  Each segment must appear on the same line as or a previous line of the next segment of the key.  The key description of the first KEYSEG is the description stored for LV to use.  The key description of each successive KEYSEG and of the KEYEND must be a plus sign (+) or at least begin with one.  Each KEYSEG and KEYEND count toward the limitation of 9 keys per report.

Example:  KEYSEG 4 6 Cust#/Inv#/WO#
     KEYSEG 12 7 +Invoice#
     KEYEND 54 7 +Work Order#

Example:  KEYSEG 4 6 Cust#/Inv#/WO#
     KEYSEG 12 7 +
     KEYEND 54 7 +

TOP


KEYSEGP, KEYENDP
These two statements are used the same as KEYSEG and KEYEND, and may be use in conjunction with KEYSEG and KEYEND.  The parameters are the same as the KEYP statement.  NOTE:  During a key lookup, LV will position to the last portion of the key segment.

Example:  KEYSEGP 2 4 6 Cust#/Inv#/WO#
     KEYSEGP 3 12 7 +Invoice#
     KEYENDP 3 54 7 +Work Order#

Example:  KEYSEGP 2 4 6 Cust#/Inv#/WO#
     KEYSEGP 3 12 7 +
     KEYENDP 3 54 7 +

TOP


KEYSEP
This keyword is used in conjunction with the variations of the KEYSEG and KEYEND keywords.  The character specified for the value of this keyword is used as a seperator between key segment values.  The key values are trimmed to remove any leading and trailing blanks with the seperator character replacing them.  In the example given below, if Cust# has a value of 6420, Inv# has a value of 345698 and Work Order# has a value of 4832, the user would key in 6420/345698/4832 to find the position in the report corresponding with that key.  Without the KEYSEP keyword in the example below, given the same segment values shown above the user would have to key in 6420  345698 4832 in order to find the position in the report corresponding with that key.

Example:  KEYSEP /
                KEYSEGP 2 4 6 Cust#/Inv#/WO#
                KEYSEGP 3 12 7 +Invoice#
                KEYENDP 3 54 7 +Work Order#

TOP


KEYZ
This is the same as the KEY statement except that during the indexing process, key values that begin with blanks will be zero-filled instead of being left-justified as normally done.  The contents of the report are not changed, only the values inserted into the index file are modified.

For example, if zero-suppression was used during printing of a report, a value of 10 in a 6 digit output would appear as "    10".  This would normally be stored in the index file as "10    ".  Using the KEYZ statement, however, would store the value as "000010".  Users should be made aware of this fact, because to retrieve the proper key value they would have to insert the zeros on the key prompt.

        Example:  KEYZ 2 6 Customer#

TOP


KEYZS
This is the same as the KEY statement except that during the indexing process, key values that begin with zeros will be zero-supressed before being left-justified.  The contents of the report are not changed, only the values inserted into the index file are modified.

For example, if the value of 10 was printed on a report in a 6 digit output without zero-suppression, it would appear as "000010".  This would normally be stored in the index file as "000010".  Using the KEYZS statement, however, would store the value as "10    ".  Users should be made aware of this fact, because to retrieve the proper key value they would have to omit the leading zeros on the key prompt. This would also affect the get-next-key value operation in LaserVault in a manner that the value 10 instead of the value 2 would follow 1 since the leading zeros are not present in the key value any longer.

        Example:  KEYZS 2 6 Customer#

TOP


KEYLNF
This is the same as the KEY statement except that during the indexing process, the key is assumed to be a person's name and the last name is inserted first into the key value.  The contents of the report are not changed, only the values inserted into the index file are modified.

Restrictions:  The process used to extract the last name from the key value is simply to scan the key value from the end until a blank is encountered preceeding the last name.  This will result in incorrect key values for those people who have complex last names such as St. John which would result in only John being moved to the first of the key value.  A solution to this problem would be to change the entry of the name to St.John without the blank.

 Another example of incorrect key values would be the use of this on reports where names of people are mixed with names of companies.  The company names would also be reversed.

        Example:  KEYLNF 2 25 Customer Name

TOP


KEYPN, KEYPX, KEYPZ, KEYPLNF
These are the variations of KEYP which function the same as the variations KEYN, KEYX, KEYZ, and KEYLNF for the KEY statement.
 

KEYSEGN, KEYSEGX, KEYSEGZ, KEYSEGLNF
KEYENDN, KEYENDX, KEYENDZ, KEYENDLNF

        These are the variations of KEYSEG, and KEYEND.

KEYSEGPN, KEYSEGPX, KEYSEGPZ, KEYSEGPLNF
KEYENDPN, KEYENDPX, KEYENDPZ, KEYENDPLNF

        These are the variations of KEYSEGP, and KEYENDP.

TOP


LINE PRINTER DAEMON (LVLPD)
Will capture *SCS or *AFP files printed for the AS/400 via TCP/IP.
TOP


LASERVAULT FTP SERVER (LVFTP)
Program designed to capture *IPDS reports from the AS/400 or any other type of host system that can FTP files.
TOP


LASERVAULT UNIVERSAL SERVER PRINT SPOOLER (LVUSSPL)
Application designed to Print Archived reports back to the AS/400 and also send print data through a telnet client.
TOP


MULTI MEDIA ATTACHMENTS
Checking this option, enables Multi-Media Attachments.  Multi-Media Attachments allow a user to attach any type of file to a page of a report.
TOP


NOREPEAT
This is used to specify that only one key value will be extracted for a key that appears multiple times consecutively on the same page. If the same key value continues consecutively across one or more page breaks, it will appear once for each page it is on.

Example:  NOREPEAT
     KEY 2 6 Customer#

TOP


NOREPEATEXT
This keyword functions the same as NOREPEAT shown above with the exception that if the same key value continues consecutively across one or more page breaks, it will not cause an index entry to be created for each page it is on, only for the very first occurrence.

Example:  NOREPEATEXT
     KEY 2 6 Customer#

TOP


NOTEFILE
This specifies the name of the file where text notes are saved.
Example: C:\LVNOTES.MDB
TOP


ONLYLINE
This is used to specify that following KEYP statements are only to extract key values found on the beginning line# specified on the KEYP statement.  Normally, a KEYP statement will only specify a beginning line# which means that if that position on the beginning line is blank, successive lines will be examined for key extraction until a value is found for the key.  There are no parameters for this.

Example:  ONLYLINE
     KEYP 4 2 6 Customer#

TOP


OPTICAL DISK
    A media for storing information. This disk will look like a large floppy disk. Not to be confused with a CD-ROM. These come in two flavors. Rewritable and WORM (Write Once, Read Many). You cannot delete files off a WORM disk and get the space back.
TOP


OPTIPATH
The Optipath specifies where report data is archived to. Reports are stored in date subdirectories in the optipath.

Example: C:\Archive1

TOP


OVERLAY PATH
This defines the location of the overlays that associate with this Archive.

Example: C:\overlay

TOP


PORT
This specifies the port that the server answers on. 23 (telnet) is the default.
TOP


POST INDEX PROGRAM
This specifies the program or batch file to run after indexing.

Example: XCOPY #BASEPATH\*.* C:\TODAYSAV

TOP


POST UPDATE PROGRAM
This specifies a program to be run after updating.

Example: C:\POSTUPD.BAT

TOP


PRINTER QUEUE
Is the QUEUE Name for the selected Archive.
TOP


QUEUE NAME
This field is used by the LVLPD and LVFTP for downloads. When downloading from a host using the LVLPROUTQ or LPR function, you must specify a destination print queue name. This is where that name is defined.

Example: ARC1

TOP


REMOVING A USER
To remove a user, select the user's name from the list and press delete.
TOP


REPLIST
    This file contains the keys for searching your reports. This is also where you give your DOS files a user friendly name for easy retrieving.
 TOP


REPNAME
    This file is built during indexing and is archived with the reports. When a user selects a date, LaserVault looks at repbuild to determine which files are in the date sub-directory.
  TOP


SHOW PAGE COUNT
If this option is checked, the # of pages will be added to the report description when the report gets indexed.
TOP


UPDATE
This is the process that comes after the compress. This copies your reports from the basepath to the optipath
TOP


WHENCOL
This is used to build a condition which must be proven true in order for a key value to be extracted for following KEY and KEYP statements. There are 2 parameters for this statement, the beginning column and string for a comparison.  The case of the characters must match that of the string being checked for in the report.

Use double quotes (") when the string has imbedded blanks within it.  A value of 999 for  the beginning column will look for the comparison to occur anywhere on the line.  A WHENCOL statement remains in effect until another WHENCOL, a WHENNOTCOL, a CLEARFLAGS, or a FILE statement is encountered.

Tip:  Some common things to check for are decimal points in dollar amounts and slashes in dates.

Example:  WHENCOL 101 .
     WHENCOL 1 "Customer Number:"

TOP


WHENNOTCOL
This is used the same as WHENCOL, except it is a negative.
TOP


WORK PATH
Specifies a temporary path for LaserVault to use while indexing.

Example: C:\Lvwork

TOP


XARC DIRECTORY
    The directory called out in the xrefpath in the laservlt.cfg
TOP


XREFPATH
This defines where cross reference information will be stored for the current archive.

Example: C:\Xarc1
