How do I find jobs that are no longer in the history pane of the Explorer window?

By default, Applications Manager keeps jobs in the "history" pane of the Explorer window for 60 minutes. If you want to find a job that has fallen out of the history pane, you must perform a filter scan to find your job. From the Explorer window, select Filter->History Query. In the History Query window, you can pick and choose what items to base your search query. The "Current Day" checkbox is automatically checked for you. Uncheck this if you want to base your search on a date range. Select the OK button. Applications Manager will return all jobs (up to 450 days ago) based on your query.

In Applications Manager, can I change the font when I open an output file and have it remember it the next time I open an output file?

Unfortunately not. Applications Manager doesn't have that capability in version 8.0_P4.

Can I type in a value instead of using the list of values for a prompt?

That depends on the prompt. If a prompt is set to allow changes, then yes, you may type in a value for that prompt. If the prompt is set so no changes are allowed, then you cannot even highlight the prompt value field. If the LOV button is highlighted, then you MUST pick a value from the list in order for the prompt value to be valid.

When I attempt to start Applications Manager from a newly downloaded client I get a dialog box with an error message and the application won't start. What does this mean?

This error typically means that you have cached versions the Applications Manager client. These cached files conflict with the updated client. To resolve these errors, you will need to clear your cache before installing the new client as follows:

Why do I have to log in when I run a report?

In INB, communication between reports and forms is done using parameters passed in a URL. Forms cannot pass your username and password to reports without exposing your password in the URL, creating a security risk. The first time you run a report from a Banner session, you will have to log in to the database. Subsequent reports may or may not prompt you to log in, depending on whether your login information is currently cached.

Why doesn't the spreadsheet option for reports save to my desktop?

For security reasons, a web server is not typically allowed to write files onto a client's machine. What we have done instead is to send the spreadsheet-based reports in Excel format. Your browser should either ask you to save the file, or open it in Excel. If you chose to open the file with Excel (or if that is your browser's default action), you can save the file to your desktop using File->Save from your browser menu.

Closing the browser window used to start INB will end your Banner session.

When you start INB, you will have two windows open. One for the initial browser session and another for the applet window where the Banner application is running. Both windows should remain open while you are running Banner
