Running QAD mfg/pro program using mbpro, do I need mf.p to run in the script?

I'm trying to run a QAD mfg/pro (running on Progress 10.1) program using mbpro command. I've provided the database, Propath and other startup parameters to my shell script. When I run the script, mbpro runs the .r program. But issue I'm facing is when my program runs through mbpro, it can't find variables like global_db etc. I get the error in my errorlog file as:

Code:
Shared variable global_user_lang_dir has not yet been created. (392)
When I run the same program from mfg/pro menu, it runs without issue. Which makes me think that the environment is not loaded with all the information. Do I need to run mf.p along with mbpro to load all environment variables? My script file is as follows:
Code:
exec $DLC/bin/mbpro \
sports
-p xxtestprogram.r\
-d mdy -yy 1990 -Bt 350 -c 30 -D 100 -mmax 3000 -nb 200 -s 3500 \
> errorfile.err

Hi Sjaka, have you tried adding {mfdeclre.i} at the beginning of your program?


Looking for a company that specializes in QAD Customization, write a message to me!

The mf.p program initialize global shared vars. You can't run directly a qad program. You must create a xxdummy.p program, and do somthing like this:
xxdummy.p
input from file.in.
output to file.ou.
run mf.p.
ouput close.
input close.

And file.in must have something like this:
"theuser" "thepassword"
"xxtestprogram.r"
.
"yes"
