How to Run Posting (GLPPOS), or other concurrent programs from the Command line?

You can run any GL program from the command line. Follow these steps:

1) Verify that you run this at a time when there are no incompatible Programs running. To find the incompatible programs:

Responsibility = System Administrator

GUI Navigation = Concurrent/Program/Define

Query on GLPPOS in the Short Name field.

Click on the Incompatibilities button.

2) Change the profile “Concurrent Hold Request” to Yes.

Responsibility = System Administrator

GUI Navigation = Profile/System

Query on the profile option ‘Concurrent Hold Requests’.

Set it to Yes at the User level and Save.

3) Select a journal batch for posting. The request will be put on hold.

Responsibility = General Ledger Super User

GUI Navigation = Journals/Post

4) Go to the Concurrent Requests form and get the parameters for the Posting concurrent process.

The parameters for posting are:

set of books id

chart of accounts id


5) Run posting from the command line.

$GL_TOP/bin/GLPPOS <username/pwd> 0 Y <parameters> X 2> <File name>

Where:   <username/pwd> : apps username and password

<parameters>   : The parameters for the program, separated by spaces. For NULL parameters you need to specify closed double quotes (“”).

X              : Indicates that you want to run the program in debug mode. This can be any character and is optional.

2> <File name> : Use this to redirect standard errors and output to a file. File name is the output file name it will create. It will be created in your current directory, if a full path is not specified. This is optional

but recommended.


If you go to the concurrent requests form and see in the Parameters field: 1,101,2546, you would enter the following command at the Unix prompt:

$GL_TOP/bin/GLPPOS <username/pwd> 0 Y 1 101 2546 X 2> <myfile.txt>

6) Change the profile option ‘Concurrent Hold Requests’ back to its original setting. Be sure to run the program from a directory for which you have write Privileges. That is where the log and out files will be created.

Also make sure that you are in the proper application environment.

Here is an example of the command and the output you will see.

$>$GL_TOP/bin/GLPPOS apps/apps 0 Y 8 50128 84 2 2> njpost2.out

DEBUG: started in debug_mode……

$> ls

L54536.log   L54540.log   O54536.out   O54540.out   njpost.out   post.out

L54538.logL54542.log   O54538.out   O54542.out   njpost2.out  test

$> more njpost2.out

Log filename    : L54542.log

Report filename : O54542.out

glpmai() fnd_user_id is -1

glpmai() fnd_user_name is ANONYMOUS

IPL Controversy

This topic is so much in media and around , i also like to put my thoughts.

I think every person who has little knowledge about politics and cricket , knows it is not Lalit or Shahsi who are culprit, they are some people getting benefit in between, there are people above them and playing a much bigger game. Their greeds are so big and they are so powerful , in front of their influence, power and greed, all these other people are just playing 2% commission kind of role.

No one in media or political arena has dare to confront them or event taking their names because every one around also enjoying some cents thrown here and there. A big game played by some one and his greeed is so big and even bigger than cricket , above all ethics.

Closing thought – We may be these and such many scam, controversy and only people/ name will change. Let keep spirit up and look for yourself and your ethics.
