IBM 4690 POS question.

IBM 4690 POS question.

IBM 4690 POS question.

On a IBM 4690  based POS.

I need to see if a register was left signed on during closing. Is there a log kept on the 4690 POS controller that will tell me this?

RE: IBM 4690 POS question.

This is going to be a function of your POS software more than your hardware. What POS system are you using?

RE: IBM 4690 POS question.

It is a 4690 Store System. It is customised specificly for the store.

But I was homing that the 4690 OS had some kind of feature to see a log or history of registers and when they are signed n and off.

because the customised part of it only let me see the current status not if on Monday a register was left on.

RE: IBM 4690 POS question.


There is a file that stores the status of the terminals, however the file's name and structure is based on the application that is loaded on top of the OS.  For SA the file you are looking for would be EAMTERMS.DAT.

RE: IBM 4690 POS question.

Since you did not post what Application you are running, I can only answer for SA. It is NOT possible to do a "Daily Close" in SA if a terminal is signed-on.
