we are migrating from version 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52. A part of it is migrating to calc manager from HBR.
Since we are used macros, the import of the generated xml from HBR resulted in BR's and associated templates.
I have 2 questions for you gurus:
1. As I find the graphical interface tedious, is there a way to script the templates as one can with the BR's ? Will placing FIX statements, formulas and everything else work if just pasted into script object?
2. Per instructions found at this link: Calculation Manager , I tried referencing a template with parameters through a design time prompt, but can't get anywhere. Anytime i click the 'prompt it' checkbox I get a message saying that i have no steps defined in the template..also Application Type, Application and User POV DSP's are automatically generated..could this have anything to do with it?
Thank you for helping a newbie.
1. Once you open the rule go to Edit->Script and that will take you the script mode and there you can type in just like ordinary calc script.
2. Do you have something in the template? Is it empty
thx for answering. Maybe i'm missing something fundamental, but the whole point is that i cannot script inside the template unlike in the BR.
Here's a screenshot:
Sure, i have some FIX blocks and am also using parameters from BR's.
Hope to hear from you soon,
Oh I thought you are editing the rule (not template). Template doesn't have a script interface. I would say create the rule in script mode and save that as a template.
