When you wish to add entries to the extract activity or you wish to delete an entry or entries, use the Add/Delete Selected Entries option. This option provides an easy way to eliminate undesired entries or to add needed ones to your list of entries to extract. Like the Inquire to File Entries option, this option displays a selected entry and then asks if you wish to delete or add the entry. If you modify the list, then the activity's status in the ARCHIVAL ACTIVITY file changes from SELECTED to EDITED.
You can only use this option to modify your list before the entries are moved to the destination file. If you need to change the extract activity list after the destination file is updated, you will need to cancel the extract activity and start a new extract activity.
To use the Add/Delete Selected Entries option, select the extract activity you wish to modify by entering the archival activity number, source file number, or source file name. Then select the entry to be added or deleted. The following dialogue depicts the sequence you will follow when adding an entry to the extract activity:
