    Handsoff Question

    JTR1104 _

      I am just curious if this is possible.

       

      With the help of the forums I have been able to create a batch that uses Monarch Utility and Monarch to input two .csv files, clean up quotes, do an external lookup, reformat multiple lines into single lines and create a .csv file as input to a predictive dialing system.   Works great and totally handsoff.   This depends only on the two input files being present.

       

      My question is this, is there any way to set up a workstation that sits in a corner doing this process day in and day out without dedicating a copy of Monarch to it?

       

      I have been reading the manual and the forums about Report Explorer and portable reports but I doubt these will do what I am looking for.    Before I start testing, I thought I would just ask.

       

      Thanx in advance.

          Hi JTR,

           

          is there any way to set up a workstation that sits in a corner doing this process day in and day out without dedicating a copy of Monarch to it?[/QUOTE]

           

          Yes... install Data Pump instead of Monarch.

           

          Seriously though, you [B]may[/B][/I] be able to replicate your established process purely with Excel and VBA code or some other programming environment/solution, but I really believe that you'll find the cost of a Monarch license to much more cost efficient. Any you already know[/B] that it works.

              Thanx for the prompt response.   Have contacted Datawatch about Data Pump for budgeting purposes and to get more info.

               

              I agree with you, can't imagine trying to do some of this stuff without Monarch.

               

              As always, great forum!!
