In our processing we need to set a specific action for a nyumber of messages.

This is for files that start with MT190 until MT199 and MT990 to MT999.\

On the page:

it states that it's possible to select a range, but this is not recognized.

expr1 To expr2 Execute if greater than or equal to expr1 and less than or equal to expr2.

               <AMCASE CONSTANT="MT190 To MT199">
                    <AMSET VARIABLENAME="mail_file">Y</AMSET>

If I change the Case to MT199, then the file gets processed correctly.

How can I use this statement ?

And can I use an OR in the case , or use CASE MT103, MT202 ?

Hello Tom,

Is it possible to view your entire task? Would you be so kind as to export the Workflow in question from the SMC, *.zip it up and attach it to the ticket so we may review?

Lastly, you may be missing the Select case and End case activities.

Select / Case

End Select / End Case
