Learn how to print daily reports without using CU*Spy.
Here is a summary of the sequence of events which take place each day for report routing:
Reports are generated all day (either manually by the CU or by Operator activities) and placed into the DAILYxx OUTQ.
Result: DAILYxx contains all reports generated during that day.
Reports destined for the monthly archive CD are generated manually by the CU and placed into the MONTHxx OUTQ.
Result: MONTHxx contains any special reports generated and sent to that queue during that day.
Evening comes and end-of-day/beginning-of-day (EOD/BOD) processes begin...
The system cleans out anything sitting in the NIGHTxx OUTQ by moving all reports to the SAVExx OUTQ, where they will remain for a minimum of 4 days.
Result: NIGHTxx is empty.
EOD/BOD reports are generated and placed into the now clean NIGHTxx OUTQ.
Result: NIGHTxx contains tonight's End-of-Day/Beginning-of-Day reports.
All reports in the DAILYxx OUTQ are moved to the NIGHTxx OUTQ.
Result: NIGHTxx now contains tonight’s EOD/BOD reports and today’s daily/monthly reports. DAILYxx is now empty.
The system looks at everything sitting in the NIGHTxx OUTQ and sends copies of the reports to PRINTxx based on the instructions in the OUTQ Routing Control.
Result: Daily and EOD/BOD reports may appear in the PRINTxx as configured. NIGHTxx still contains tonight’s EOD/BOD reports and today’s daily reports.
All reports in the NIGHTxx and MONTHxx OUTQs are copied to CU*Spy for archival.
All reports in the MONTHxx OUTQ are moved to the SAVExx OUTQ, where they will remain for a minimum of 4 days.
Result: MONTHxx is now empty. NIGHTxx still contains tonight’s EOD/BOD reports and today’s daily reports.
The next day starts and the cycle begins again.
Special month-end reports, the ones you want to make sure are included on your monthly reports CD, should be placed in MONTHxx OUTQ. IMPORTANT: If you wish to print a hard copy, you will still need to remember to set the report to save status and return it to the OUTQ after it is printed.
Reports in the HOLDxx OUTQ are never archived. Reports that need to be archived must be sent to the DAILYxx OUTQ.
On occasion Operations runs special reports intended for archival (such as the tax reports and tax forms each spring). To protect these from accidentally being deleted by CU users, these are run through a special ARCDLYxx OUTQ which is used to send the reports to CU*Spy. This OUTQ is not used by credit union staff.
