Maintaining Component Effective Dates
Use Component Effectivity Date Maintenance to update component effective dates in the QAD EA production database when engineering changes occur. This functionality is required when components have been added to the QAD EA production database with start or end effective dates that prevent the selection of these components.

Component Effectivity Date Maintenance
The function displays all the components of the selected configurable item along with their reference, start, and end effective dates in the source database.
To update the effective dates of a component:
Specify the destination start date, new start date and new end date by clicking the Down arrow next to these column heads.
Click the Save button to save the changes. The Rule column changes to Y to indicate that there is an active rule for this component.
To remove a rule, select the component and click Delete Rule.
