Introduction:

It may be desirable (or required) for a single TPX userID to be able to log on to the product multiples times and work with those session menus concurrently.  

Question:

How to set up TPX to allow a single userID to access the product from multiple logons (concurrently)?

Answer:

This can be accomplished by changing the user's transfer option to MULT.

These are the steps to achieve it:

  1. Select session TPXADMIN (self-maintenance) from the TPX menu
  2. Select TPX User Options (Panelid - TEN0128)
  3. Press PF8
  4. Enter MULT on field Transfer Option
  5. Press PF3 twice
  6. Log off TPX
  7. Log on to TPX various times (as needed) using the same userID.
