E-Rec - HRP 5102 has multipe status for Candidate profile Released
I had a requirement to transfer the internal candidates to E-Rec system (from HR system) with their candidate profile in released status.
Hence i have customized the ALE to update the table HRP5102 - STATUS with status "2"(Released) whenever data transfer is done from HR system.
I have two questions here;
There are 3 statuses available for the candidate profile in HRP5102 - STATUS field
0 - Locked
1 - Released
2 - Released
What is the difference between status 1 & 2 ?
When running a candidate search (using the TREX search), it does not throw the entire list of candidates whose profiles are released but only a few. Is this hapenning because i have the candidates data stored in HRP5102 in status "2"??
Any inputs on the above queries would help me..

I think we discussed this topic here some times before. The reason for the 3 status values are the original 3 status for the candidate which were supposed to be "currently not looking for a job" (registered a while ago but currently quite satisfied with what i do), "only passive looking for a job" (my job is not that bad but i will come if you put enough cash on the table) and "active looking for a job" (I'm a talent - GET ME OUT OF HERE!).
Later SAP realized that this system does not really make sense as nearly everyone will change the job if the price is fine so the system was changed to be "can be found in the talent pool" and "can not be found in talent pool". But as there were already 3 values, 2 of them got the same meaning. So there is not difference between 1 and 2.
In all cases I checked in the coding there is always a check against value 0. EQ 0 for locked and NE 0 for released. So this should not be the reason if someone is not found in the talent pool search.
