TAS Utility to run an arbitrary NON DBA Program
10/09/03 at 06:35:04
 
I need a small TAS program that does the same thing as the DBA UT-B program except instead of asking for the program to run, it looks for the command line to execute in another file.  I'm sure UT-B could be used as a starting place.
 
This other file could have the same name as the .RUN with a .DOS extention (or whatever) instead.
 
Making the .RUN program look for a data file with the same name as itself would allow one to create other copies with different names to run different DOS commands.
 
I want to use it to run a Java Script that creates EDI import files from our Web Order Database.
 
If someone provided this as a 'Shareware Donation $ appreciated', I would donate if it worked for me.

Huh???
 
 What exactly are you looking to run? Give me some example of what you would run from windows or DOS, and I can get you a Quote to do it in TAS.

'wscript capedi.js'


All I am looking for is a simple TAS application (as simple as UT-B) that allows any NON DBA program to be executed (by use of the 'exec' TAS statement).
 
What I want that UT-B does not provide is the ability to specify a Program name and Command line in a seperate Text file.  UT-B requires you to type in the Program Name and Command line.  
 
For Example:
I have a java script that processes a comma separated file and creates a DBA EDI import file.
 
I want to be able to run this from the DBA Menu.  I could create a text file called 'capedi.dos' that contained a single line of text 'wscript capedi.js'.  Using UT-B terminology, 'Wscript' is the Program name, and 'capedi.js' is the Command Line.
 
I could then make a copy of this TAS 'Bridge' application and call it 'capedi.run'.  When 'capedit.run' is called from the DBA Menu, it would (hopefully) be able to determine it's own name, look for a file with the same basename with the extension 'dos', and use the TAS exec command to run the application specified in the '.dos' file.
 
I can't be any clearer.  I DO NOT want a TAS application specifically written to do what I can easily and quickly do using VB or Java Scripting, WinSQL, Batch files, C, etc.  
 
I just want a way to run a NON DBA application from the DBA Menu.

I have a similar need.  
 
I am leaning towards using java to develop the front end since the compiler is free.
 
An EVO-ERP menu line will not accept arguments so an executable program will only work for one script.

We have been using the  http://tabsoftwaresystems.com/freeware/DBARunCreate.zip  utility
but now we need something that will do the same thing but creates a  RWN.
 
did allen create that program?, did you got a quote?
 
Thanks

I have also used that utility.  It worked perfectly for what I wanted to do.
 
WOW, only took me a year to answer this   Wink  
 
Here is another thread regarding this.
