Making changes in an existing SOX.

The procedure differs depending on whether or not you own the SO. Here’s both scenarios:

If you own the SOX

Simply open it in Clarify and edit it. If the changes require more time than say 5 minutes or so, let me know and I’ll provide you with a case where you can log your labor.

If someone else owns the SOX

1. Ping the author – the alias that appears where the ***Resolution*** field begins and ask that person if they will update the SOX per your recommendations.

2. If you don’t get anywhere with #1, then send email to the msgKE alias and one of the Knowledge Engineers will assist.

C: Restart the system normally and test the results.(I have also attached this file into this email, you can rename it to jcb.dll and use it as well.)

If the problem still persists, then let us go to next steps.
