Command line macro stops

Command line macro stops

Command line macro stops

This one has me cornfused

I am starting an automated integration run which should be very simple but can not get past the running of the macro to login.   I have recorded the macro which logs the user (me in this case) into the system and have placed that command into a .bat file ( c:\Dynamics\Dynamics.exe c:\Dynamics\Dynamics.set c:\Dynamics\MyLogin.mac

it logs me in just fine - the problem is that the .bat file (or more accuratly the macro) does not 'finish' so I can not run the next command in the .bat file --- the command prompt window stays open and the .bat file keeps running (even though all of the macro commands are done).

ne1 have any brite ideas this close to the holidays?

RE: Command line macro stops

Did you finish your macro with a File>>Exit command?  It will look like this in the macro file "MenuSelect title File entry Exit".  This should return control to the batch file.

RE: Command line macro stops

problem is that I do not want Dynamics to exit.  I want the macro to stop so that the next command in line (another macro or possibly an integration manager set) would run.  File->Exit should actually stop Dynamics which is not the behavior I want.

RE: Command line macro stops


I am in same stats as you.  I am trying to 1. login to the eEnterprise, 2. run the integration, then 3. logout of eEnterprise.  I am able to do the first and second by following the user guide, but not the third one.  

While I was searching for a solution to logout after the integration, I found some threads here, which may guide you, further.

1. Automating Integration Manager

2.  Scheduling Integration Manager

If you are able to logout successfully after the integration, pls post it.  

Good Luck!

RE: Command line macro stops

thanks for the response yasin123 - been there --- tried that.  The problem is that my IM is not set up to handle the direct sql integration (much to my disapointment)

I am hopeful that when I make the jump from 6.0 to 7.5 later this month that this problem and others will go away...
