  • Updating the Cross-Reference
    The cross-reference is built by compiling programs, then checking the compiled programs against the menu. If you change menus or change programs, rebuild the cross-reference using Cross-Reference Update Menu (36.18.24).
    Rebuild cross-references as follows:
    If the source has changed, run Cross-Reference Update from Source (
    Run Missing Component Program (, Missing Menu Execution File (, and Programs with No Menu ( reports.
    These reports show any errors in menu or program listings. Missing Menu Execution File Report, for instance, shows names of programs called by the menu that do not exist.
    After making corrections, add parent-component relationships not included in step 1. Missing parent-components are supplied by the cross-reference.
    Run Menu Item Cross-Reference Create ( to link all cross-reference items with the menu.
    Delete obsolete cross-reference items.
