    Progress Editior

    I've used Progress Developer Studio for years, and I highly recommend it. However, if you need to use Notepad++, consider downloading the OpenEdge UDL here: https://github.com/ccleaud/ProgressABL-for-Notepad-plusplus In Notepad++, the UDL will highlight and color syntax for Progress files and...

    Changing a Field's Extent in 11.7.3

    You're absolutely right. :D It might be better to change these array entries into a table of their own. I'll look into that possibility.

    Changing a Field's Extent in 11.7.3

    According to this article, it's not possible to change a field's extent once you commit a database. Is this still true in 11.7.3?

    Audit Archive Failure

    Thanks, Rob. Based on what you've said and what I've figured out, I have an idea what happened: In cron, our databases run an audit archive at 2:45 AM, and our databases shut down for a cold backup at 3:01 AM. On 2020/03/08 at 1:59 AM, cron ran all jobs between 2:00 and 2:59 right after the...

    Audit Archive Failure

    We ran the following on Sunday, March 8, at 3 AM: proutil /users/mf/live/db/mffg1 -C auditarchive -directory /users/mf/live/db/audit_archive/ The log shows the following: OpenEdge Release 11.7.5 as of Fri Jun 7 08:29:03 EDT 2019 Archive all the records prior to 2020/03/08@03:00:01.530-0500...

    Question Storing Auditing Data in Production Databases

    OpenEdge documentation recommends archiving auditing data separately from production databases. I'd like to get some clarification on the reasons why. (Context: Our production databases are 4.8 GB, and our archive database is 10 GB. We are not legally bound to use auditing; for us, it serves as...

    Question PROUTIL AUDITARCHIVE Archive File Overwrite

    The OpenEdge documentation says the following: However, it seems like PROUTIL AUDITARCHIVE doesn't give you the choice to overwrite the existing audit archive (abd). In my cronjob script, I ran the following: yes | proutil /users/mf/live/db/mffg1 -C auditarchive -directory...

    Question Online Field/Table Description Changes

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that we're using Progress 11.7.5. I'm unable to make any changes online through the Data Dictionary while in multi-user mode. I am able to add fields and tables by loading an incremental df in Data Administration. However, I tried to change an existing field's...

    Question Online Field/Table Description Changes

    Is it true that changing the description of a table or field is not allowed while its database is in multi-user mode? If so, I'd like to understand why. If users can change the format of existing fields online, then why can't they change descriptions?

    Ah, okay. Looks like it's time to bite the bullet and use binary dump and load. :D Just one problem: I can't use binary dump and load for schema tables like _sec-role: Binary dump can't dump schema tables (9310) Binary Dump failed. (6253) If I can't use binary dump and load and I can't use...

    Loading Audit Policies Error

    Okay, thanks! I figured out that application level events (events greater than or equal to 32001) weren't dumping and loading. How do I do that programmatically? I sucessfully dumped these events using src/prodict/dump_d.p, but when I ran load_d.p for _aud-event, I got this error: The file...
