TC Director can easily and transparently re-name the input/output flat files in existing Table Conversions (TC's) in JDEdwards® EnterpriseOne®.

Table Conversions in JDE offer powerful data transformation services. TC's can accept multiple flat files as inputs or outputs. One of the most common issues with using this standard JDE functionality is that when changing the Flat File names in TC's, all associated ER's are deleted.

For example, if the source Flat File location needs to change (e.g. to a different Server or a different Network Share or Folder), all ER's will need to be re-enetered manually.

This limitation is very expensive to overcome, if the TC's in question contain extensive amounts of custom code, or if there are many TC's to be changed. Not very surprisingly, this exact reason is frequently forcing users to keep the old flat file names (including the destination folder names), even if there are strong business reasons to move them to different locations.
TC Director offers a simple and lightning-fast graphical user interface to perform such changes in seconds:

This tool is using JDEdwards® EnterpriseOne® API's and so, is absolutely hardware-independent. It does not require any configuration and is operational immediately upon the installation.

Only external Flat File names can be updated in this way. Using TC Director to change Table and View names is not supported. All and any formats, mappings and ER's are preserved intact, when changing the Flat File names. TC Director works with "Local Specs" in the sign-on Environment, so the TC Objects will need to be checked-out before re-naming the flat files and then checked-in after all names have been successfully changed. This short statement is practically the only detail you will need to know in advance. The tool's simple one-button interface and intelligent self-configuring design guarantee, that no training will be necessary beyond reading this paragraph. In fact, there's even no need for any documentation - it is immediately obvious how this tool operates and all necessary details are shown right on the tool's main screen.

This software will always be more cost-efficient to use over consulting, even for one-off changes, if the changes require more than a day of work. For recurring or frequent changes, this tool can save very substantial time and money.

This software is licensed Per Named User.

The optional Yearly Update/Upgrade Subscription is available at the time of purchase (not available separately) for an additional yearly fee. It is payable in advance per license, per year. It includes premium support and all software updates released during the paid period. Its cost is calculated as 20% of the product's list price at the time of invoicing, as may change from time to time. Unless the software is purchased for a single use application, we generally recommend to opt in for this Subscription: any future JDE Tools Releases and Releases/Updates may require an updated version of this solution and it's generally more cost-efficient compared to one-off Upgrades.
