Question:

When generating a foreground list of elements for display, it can take several minutes if the List Options 'Build Using Map' is selected, and 'Case-Sensitive Elm Nm' is set to 'N'.  Why does this happen after upgrading to release 18.0 incremental 08 ?

Environment:
Endevor release 18.0 incremental 07, 08, 09
Answer:

Known problem P7472 Resolved by ptf RO95476

 

 

 

Additional Information:

There are two new list options under incremental 08, 'Uppercase Element' and 'Case-Sensitive Elm Nm'. If 'Case Sensitive Element Nm' is set to no, all variations of the element name will be searched, regardless of the 'Uppercase Element' option. This option, along with 'Build Using Map', can result in a search taking several minutes depending on the number of elements in the map.

Workaround:  change 'Case-Sensitive Elm Nm' to 'Y'
