With the Generate Dupl. Search String batch job, you can create search strings for your contact companies (not contact persons). The program uses search strings when searching for duplicate entries.
If you have selected the Maintain Index field in the Relationship Management Setup window, the program creates search strings automatically each time you create a company. However, if you have not selected the Maintain Index field, the program does not create search strings automatically and you may want to generate them manually.
If you want to include more information, you can select additional fields to be included in the batch job. To do this, in the Field field, press F3, click the AssistButton and then select the relevant field(s). You can set filters on any of the fields. If you do not set any filters, the batch job will include all your records.
Click OK to start the batch job. If you do not want to run the batch job now, click Cancel to close the window.
To filter the information in the batch job, in the Filter field, fill in the relevant information as follows:
Company No. field: Enter the numbers of the contact companies you want the program to generate search strings for. If you leave this field empty, the program will generate search strings for all your contact companies.
Last Date Modified field: Enter the date on which the contacts that you want to generate search strings for were last modified.
External ID: Enter the external ID of the contacts that you want to generate search strings for.
Click the up-arrow in the lower left-hand corner of the window to see the table with the filters you have set for the batch job.
