The GeoTAX installation process copies an IVP (installation verification procedure) file to your system. This is a basic job that confirms the proper installation of the application files and programs. The sample job is useful as a template for new jobs since it contains the minimum required organization and content.

The first step in defining your GeoTAX job is to copy the sample job for your own purposes.

On Windows:

To copy the sample job:

  1. Access the applicable drive and GeoTAX data folder, for example ...GeoTAX\data.

  2. Copy sample.prm and rename it as a template for the new job, for example myjob.prm.

    Note:  The name you choose must be the same for the .bat file and is used to name all output data, reports, and Execution Logs by default.
  3. Access the applicable drive and bin folder, for example ...GeoTAX\bin.

  4. Copy sample.bat and rename it as a template for the new job, for example myjob.bat.

  5. From Start, select All Programs > Precisely > GeoTAX > Edit GeoTAX Batch Job.

  6. When the GeoTAX window opens, enter the name, for example myjob, and click OK.

  7. When the file opens, re-define the G1JOB variable from SAMPLE to your job name (in this example myjob) and the locations of the input and output files of the GeoTAX data you want to store.

  8. Copy your input file of addresses etc. into your applicable data folder and rename it to the same name as the bat and give it an extension of nam. For example myjob.nam.

OR

Edit your bat job and modify the “SET DD_GTBMNAM=%G1GTX%\data\%G1JOB%.NAM” statement to the location and name of your file.

On UNIX/Linux:

To copy the sample job:

  1. Go to the /bin directory.

  2. Source the setup file. For example, enter:

    . ./setup

    This is necessary at login time and it is usually not necessary to repeat during the session.

  3. Copy sample to newname, where newname is the name you assign to the job.

    For example, to create a job called myown, enter the following:

    cp sample myown
    Note: The name you choose is used to name all output data, reports, and Execution Logs by default.
  4. Edit the file created above.

On z/OS:

  1. Edit dataset yourhlq.GEOTAX.CNTL that was installed with GeoTAX.

  2. Create a new member and copy member IVPFILE into it.

  3. Add a job card and modify as necessary. Parameter records are instream under DD GTBMPRM. If desired, they may be put in a separate JCL member and the dataset name referred to in DD GTBMPRM.
