First, define a new Process (Tailoring > Document Engine > Processes)

Second, update the Process (which is called by

In the "Expressions evaluated before RAD call" for the RAD application, enter:

if ($setCategory="CATEGORY_NAME" then category in $L.file="CATEGORY_NAME"; $setCategory=NULL



Third, add the Menu item to the Menu record which will call the new Process:


Parameter Name:   name

Parameter Value:   openConfigChange (or whatever you called it)

Enter a description, option # and condition.
