  • ESVER gave error RNX0100, length or start position is out of range for the string operation, when the company name was between 38 and 40 positions.
  • On systems with lots of spooling activity for a user when the e-mail request specifically named the job rather than using JOB(*), ESEND would randomly include spooled files that had been printed or deleted before the list was compiled, causing the sort order of the list to be inaccurate.

The following enhancements are included in this version:

  • Forward Rules Maintenance (EFWDRULES) was further improved to provide control of the status of the spooled file after sending. A new value of *SAVE was added.
  • The ESEND Plug-in is now compatible with Client Access V6R1 and V7R1.
