The toolbar is located below the menu bar. This toolbar displays the name of the currently open Portfolio object and provides quick access to frequently used commands to manage the object. The asterisk sign next to the object name indicates that this object has unsaved changes.

The elements of the lower section are used to specify the execution process parameters and display the results of this process.

You can also specify another date and execute the Portfolio task. To enter the date, do one of the following:

  • Type it in the Date text box.
  • Click the Select previous execution button, and then select an entry in the open dialog box. (This dialog box contains a list of existing resulting Portfolio instances, which corresponding tasks have been executed for certain AsOfDate and key parameters. When you select one, its date, instance key, and stream key parameters are displayed on the screen.)
  • Click the Today button to set today’s date.

Task status box displays the intermediate state or result of the Portfolio task execution. One of the following can be displayed here:

  • NONE – the task has not been executed yet.
  • WAITING – the task is being in a queue.
  • START – the task is in progress.
  • ACTIVE – the task has been executed successfully.
  • WARNING – the task has been executed with noncritical errors. You can work with the results of this execution.
  • ERROR – the task execution has failed.
  • KILLED – the task execution has been canceled by the user.

The last exec box displays the date and time of the latest Portfolio task execution. The box is empty if the Portfolio task for specified AsOfDate and instance key parameters has not been executed yet.

Execution log button opens the “Error Messages” dialog box that contains information related to all Portfolio execution and other errors, as well as other events that occurred during the Portfolio execution process. The button is unavailable if the Portfolio task for specified AsOfDate and instance key parameters has not been executed yet.

Condensed error messages are displayed as entries in the list. The detailed information is stored in the dedicated log files, the access to which is organized through menu items.

To open a log file, click the Log Files button, point to a language menu item (e.g. English), and then click the log file menu item of your choice.

Note: The most recent log files, i.e. the ones belonging to the latest Portfolio task execution, are stored under the “Log Files” button. If you need to view log files belonging to prior Portfolio task executions, click the “Prior Log Files” button, point to a date menu item, point to a language menu item, and then click the log file menu item of your choice. If there are no prior Portfolio task executions the “Prior Log Files” button is hidden.
