Hello,

Define a "special resource" and then use it in the jobs you want to prevent running at the same time.
Hope this helps,

Hello,

I'm not a TWS user, but i suspect you would define an exclusive special resource (i have a 50/50 chance :) ). The manual or TWS support will tell you exactly. . .
Hope this helps,

what is the use of special resources ...

does not seem so complicated to look at the TWS manuals to find out,
the explanation is pretty clear over there ( manual' s land )
cheers

When I tell somebody to RTFM or STFW I usually have the page open in another tab/window of my browser,
so that I am sure that the information requested can be reached with a very small effort
