1221869 - Initializing the reference period when opening a linked schedule


When you open a linked schedule, the process for initializing the reference period has changed between version 9 and ES Magnitude.

In this example, there are two data retrieval schedules A and B where A is linked to B.
No dimension is contained in the Select data tab of schedule A.
Schedule B contains the Data entry period dimension which is initialized with the value +0+00.

The Data entry period dimension is requested when you run schedule A.
In schedule A, click on the link to schedule B.

In version 9, no information is requested for the Data entry period or the Reference period. However, in ES Magnitude, a Reference period is requested.
