[GE users] Sequence Number + Load = whether to execute a job?

Hobbs,

The queue sorting has methods: seq no. and load formula.  However, when you pick 
one, the other actually is still active, and serves to provide a secondary means 
of sorting, ie, queue determination, when the primary means results in equal 
values for queues being compared.  EG, if you choose seq no. as the queue 
sorting method, and two queues have the same seq no., then the load formula 
determines which of these two gets chosen.

Regards,
