During data entry, we are warned if an account/segment is inactive. There is no warning when importing files if a segment is inactive.
Your .def file may be set up with the "SUPPRESSWARNINGS" command. That command can be removed so that you will see warnings, such as for inactive accounts, segments, vendors, etc, and the system will still display error messages that prevent the data from being imported.
You won't be notified about changes to this idea.
