Reference Data

This command enables you to access the library management options for the Piping Job Specification Table Library. You can create a new library file or create, modify, or delete data in an existing Library. You can also create reports of the data in the library and post data from the unapproved library to the approved library.

The spec tables for US practice are delivered in the file us_pjstb.l in the RDUSRDB product directory.

The system tracks revision dates for table entries when a table is revised. This revision management data is recorded in a separate Table Revision Management Library, named <table_library>.l.r. If the library has been removed or deleted, the software regenerates the library file.

With the 4.2 release, the limitation on the size of tables in the Piping Job Spec Table Library was increased from approximately 16,000 bytes per table to 20,000 bytes per table.

With the 7.1 release, the limitation on the size of tables in the Piping Job Spec Table Library was increased from approximately 20,000 bytes to 60,000 bytes or 750 lines.

Before Using This Command
