Batch job to print reports overnigt

Hello world[:D]
“Problem is, this info is only available to Ugu (Municipality), once the query is run manually, against one Purchase Requisition at a time. There is no report on it, no history on it.
So you must create a batch job, that does a Commitment check against all open PR’s; saves the info for every PR to a table, then you must build a report to query that table.
The batch job must run every night and populate the table automatically.”

Please help.

Thank you in advance


Hi Sonoyolo,

Not sure what you are looking for exactly. Please can you clarify your query?

Hi sinoyolo,

I’m not sure about your requirement but, to create a batch job, you can create a class that extends runBaseBatch class ( see the tutorial_RunBaseBatchClass in AOT), then in the run Method, you can create a query that populates your table, do this step first, for the report, I did something similar, I had to generate salesQuotation pdf files, here’s a sample code, I call it in the run() method of my class:

SalesQuotationTable SalesQuotation;
ReportRun report;
str filename,path;
path = “\\yourPath\Yourdirectory\”;

while select SalesQuotation where blablabla
filename = strfmt("%1%2",SalesQuotation.QuotationId,".pdf");

report = new ReportRun(new Args(ReportStr(MyReport)));


report.printJobSettings().setTarget(PrintMedium::File);//Print into a file
report.printJobSettings().format(PrintFormat::PDF);//file format = pdf

then you’ll probably have to deal with security problems or bugs batch specific, try first to create and populate your table with batch job when it’s OK, mail me if you have problems with the report generation, I’ll try to help



Hi Harish

Basically what I’m requested to do is to record all commitments on Budget votes be kept. There must be a report available. Do a batch that will calculate all commitments in the system against all budget votes and this must be done daily.

I’m not sure if now you can get it, but if not please tell I’ll find another way to explain it.

Thank you


Hi Thomas
