PRT_ROUTE (Type 6) Configuration Example

A user can create an $UNKNOWN item type and enter items of this type in the source region.

If the user changes the transition point id to an integer value of the item type that should be moved, Tracker searches for an item with an $UNKNOWN type in the Route's source region.

If an $UNKOWN item type is:


The item_type_is of the item is changed to the matching one in the prt_type_trn.idt file.

Not found

An item, which is the type that the user entered,  is created in the destination region.

Note: An $UNKNOWN item type is non-serialized.
