Other options

Memory Refresh Interval: The Memory Refresh interval option on the option Tab-page defines how often (in seconds) the B1 Usability Package should optimize its memory. Normally SAP Add-ons use 100-150 MB of memory, but with Boyum ITs special memory optimization, the memory usage can be reduced to as little as 1 MB! Using the configuration, you are able to set how often the refresh should occur. Setting a lower value will increase the reduction of memory, but might cause longer operations to be a bit slower. A higher value will make your long operations a bit faster, but the memory reduction will be higher. Default is 10 seconds. You can turn the system off completely by setting a value of 0.

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 15/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

Additional Authorization Tree


During startup of B1 Usability Package a user permission tree is created, in order to be able to set different user permissions throughout the system. If you already have such a tree, you will stil be able to use it, as the new tree doesnt overwrite existing trees. The tree created by B1 Usability Package will set the authorization level to full authorization for all users, for all forms in B1 Usability Package. This will not affect an already existing tree, where user authorization might be restricted for specific forms, as no authorization overrules full authorization for a user. It is recommended not to delete the permission tree created by B1 Usability Package, as it will be created every time it is missing.

Shared functionality
The following sections describe functionality that is shared among multiple add-ons. Users selection In several of the B1UP configurations you have the option to make configuration user-specific: Function Buttons Item Placement Tool Mandatory Fields B1 Validation System Add and Edit Menus

Below show the Function button configuration as example but they all work basically the same.

The Select Users can be accessed by either right-clicking the users-field or pressing the button. The window presented will display all users in the currently logged in database + any usergroups you might have created (see below). By choose users you can select which users to include/exclude for the configuration (Described in more detail in each configuration section) UserGroups Selecting user as above is easy but can be tideous if you have a lot of users (and add a new user). For that reason you have the option to group users in usergroups. In order to access the user-groups press the Usergroups button on the Select Users window:

Page 24/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

Here you can create user-groups and assign a set of user to it. You need to provide a code and a name for the groups and the select the users that should be in the group. The the sample above we have created a group called sales and added Donna, Doris and Fred to it (Later if a new person join sales you just need to include them in the group and they will get the same configs as the 3 mentioned users). TIP: A USER CAN BE PART OF MULTIPLE GROUPS IF NEEDED Now when you return to the Select Users window you will see the created usergroups as well as individual users and you can select them as where they users.

In our sample whe have in essence selected manager (as user) and Donna, Doris and Fred (as group). Should any of these 4 users log in they will see the respective configuration.

In the above example we are using the MRP menu as parent for our menu1.

Video: Click here to watch more information on how to find menu-uids. After Menu Uid, Title and Parent Menu Uid has been filled out, you have to give your menu/menu item a position. This is used to determine where to place the menu/menu item. Position 0 is the topmost position, but if you want a different one, the easiest way is to count it. It is possible to enable specific menus/menu items for specific users. This is done by typing in usernames in the User column separated by a ; for each user. You can choose either to include or exclude the users specified, whatever is easiest. If you want to enable this for all users, just leave the Users column blank, and forget about the User Settings. The last column is only filled out for menu items that you want to execute a universal function. This is done by standing in the field and pressing Tab, to use a choose from list to select the wanted universal function. You also have the option to add an image to the menu-item. Just enter a path to an image (Example: \\server\red.bmp) or double-click on the cell to choose an image. NB: ONLY JPG, JPEG AND BMP IMAGES ARE SUPPORTED. THE IMAGE SHOULD BE 16X16 PIXELS. ALSO ONLY TOP-LEVEL MAIN-MENU ENTRIES AND TOP-MENU ENTRIES WILL SHOW ITS IMAGE. TIP: THE TRANSPARENT IMAGE COLOR IN SAP IS RGB(192,220,192 = LIGHT GREEN) HEX: #C0DCC0.USE THIS COLOR ON THE PARTS OF YOUR IMAGE THAT SHOULD BE TRANSPARENT. In the above example we have created a menu called Menu Header that contains a menu item called Submenu with a Submenu 2 under it. This is reflected by the screenshot below that shows the main menu after this window is updated.

The Edit existing menus tab If we change to the Edit existing menus tab we now have the option to rename existing menus/menu items. This functionality works the same way. That is, you find the Uid of the menu/menu item you wish to rename by using mouse over with System Information activated, you type it in, and write a new title for the item. When you have typed in the Uid of the item you want to rename, simply press tab to place the cursor in the New Title column. If the Uid entered in the Menu Uid column is correct, the Original Title is shown in the Original Title column.

As shown in the above screenshot, the original title of this menu item is Document Printing, and I renamed it to Print Documents. The & sign in the original title decides what shortcut key to use for this menu item. In this case it is u, as the & is in front of it. The screenshot below shows the change:

Should the user wish to change his/hers default search behavior, simply switch to the advanced tab, check and uncheck the data you wish to search for and press Save as my default search. Doing so will cause you to search for checked data as default until you make a new change and save that as default. Search customizations created are also shown on the page if they are active for the user. Likewise are search criterias that have been disabled not shown. NB: AS YOU MIGHT HAVE NOTICED, THE DEFAULT SEARCH DOES NOT INCLUDE SEARCH ON DOCUMENT LINES AS DEFAULT.

Field Form type

Description Use this field to decide which form types (Window types in SAP Business One) the trigger should react to. TIP: IF YOU HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME CONFIGURATION ON TWO OF MORE FORMS (OFTEN SALES AND PURCHASE ORDERS) YOU CAN MAKE ONE CONFIG WORK ON MULTIPLE FORMS BY ENTERING MULTIPLE FORMTYPES SEPERATED BY ;. EXAMPLE: IF YOU ENTER 139;133 AS FORMTYPE THE TRIGGER WILL REACT ON BOTH FORMTYPE 139 (SALES ORDER) AND 133 (A/R INVOICE) TIP: USE THE .. BUTTON TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE MOST COMMON FORMTYPES. In this field, you enter which item the trigger should respond to. This could be a button (Being pressed), an Edit Text (Leaving the field) or a combo box (new value selected) or any of the items on a window. Some events like form-load and form-unload does not require an item TIP: IF YOU HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME CONFIGURATION ON TWO OF MORE ITEMS YOU CAN MAKE ONE CONFIG WORK ON MULTIPLE ITEMS BY ENTERING MULTIPLE ITEMUIDS SEPERATED BY ;. EXAMPLE: IF YOU ENTER 4;54 AS ITEMUID ON A SALES ORDER THE TRIGGER WILL REACT ON BOTH THE BP CODE ITEM (4) AND BP NAME ITEM (54) If the item above entered was a matrix or a grid, you will also need to tell the trigger which column it is that you want to react to. If the item is not a matrix, you should not provide a column. TIP: IF YOU HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME CONFIGURATION ON TWO OF MORE COLUMS YOU CAN MAKE ONE CONFIG WORK ON MULTIPLE COLUMS BY ENTERING MULTIPLE COLUMNUIDS SEPERATED BY ;. EXAMPLE: IF YOU ENTER 1;3 AS COLUID ON A SALES ORDER WITH ITEM 38 THE TRIGGER WILL REACT ON BOTH THE ITEM CODE (1) AND DESCRIPTION (3) Again, if the item chosen is a matrix, and you have defined a column, you can choose to decide which specific row the trigger should react on. If you wish to react on any row then leave the row-field empty Here you can enter the Menu Uid of the menuitem clicked (Only used in combination with the Menu Click Event (See below)) TIP: IF YOU HAVE EXACTLY THE SAME CONFIGURATION ON TWO OF MORE MENUITEMS YOU CAN MAKE ONE

CONFIG WORK ON MULTIPLE MENUITEMS BY ENTERING MULTIPLE MENUUIDS SEPERATED BY ;. EXAMPLE: IF YOU ENTER 1281;1282 AS MENUUID ON A SALES ORDER, THE TRIGGER WILL REACT ON BOTH THE SWITCH TO ADD (1282) AND SWITCH TO FIND (1281)

TIP: USE THE .. BUTTON TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE MOST COMMON MENUUIDS. Above, you have defined what specific form/item/column/row the system should react on. In addition to this you now need to tell the trigger the specific state the form/item is in and what event-conditions is required. Form The form-mode allows you to only get the trigger to react if the window is in a specific mode. As Mode an example you might only want to react to a button being clicked in add-mode. Event The event is the primary selection of the state in the trigger. Here you inform the trigger of what kind of event happened Event Description Click Any item was clicked but not pressed (See item pressed) Combo box A value was selected from a combo box select Double An item received a double click (two fast left clicks) click Form Load A window was opened (Please note that in some cases Form Load cannot access the window opened (since it is still opening)) Form A window is about to be closed. If you catch this event BeforeAction and block Closing the event you can prevent the user from closing the window. Form A window was closed (Please note that since the Form Unload closes the Closed window, in some situations you will not be able to access the data from that (Form window where the event happened.) Unload) Item An item was pressed (pressed = clicked and released button) [This is the most Pressed commonly used event in configurations] Key Down A key was pressed (Use the Char Pressed and Modifier option for more on what key was pressed (ALT, CTRL or SHIFT)) Validate A field is about to loose focus [Often used when you want to trigger something based on what was entered in a field] Got Focus This happens when a field have received focus NB: WHEN USING GOT FOCUS, BE AVARE THAT THIS DOES NOT HAPPEN BEFORE ACTION, SO
SETTING THIS PROPERTY TO TRUE WILL NEVER TRIGGER THE EVENT

Menu Click Data Load Data Add Data Update Data Delete Column Link

This happens when a menu click is pressed (the menu uid you written in the menu uid field) When a window load its data (Example When you navigate to a new Business Partner) When a window add some data (Example When you add a new Business Partner) When a window updates its data (Example When you update a Business Partner) When a window deletes its data (Example When you delete a Business Partner) When a user press an Orange Arrow on line level this event will happen.

Form Key Down When This event happen only once after B1UP are successfully started. You can use B1UP is this event to open some predefined window as an example. finished loading Below are the four event-options you can use to specify the event even further. This is needed because SAP almost always sends its events twice (One before SAP does what it was supposed to do on the event and one after it is done with the event). These all have 3 states (True, False and ignore (react on both True and False)). Before This determines if your trigger should react before SAP reacts on the event. Action NB: SOME EVENT DO NOT HAVE AN EVENT WHERE BEFORE ACTION IS TRUE. NB: ONLY EVENTS THAT IS SET BEFORE ACTION CAN BLOCK SAPS EVENTS USING ITS UNIVERSAL FUNCTION Action This determines if your trigger should react after SAP is done processing the event. Success Item This determines if you only want to react to the event it the item of the event was changed. Changed Inner User-events can in some rare cases cause other events to happen. These are called inner Event events. Sometimes, this can lead to an endless loop of events. It is in general best to set this to

false, but in some rare cases you might need to change it. If the event chosen was the Key Down event, you will need to tell the trigger what key you would like it to react on. This is done using the Char Pressed and the Modifier Char The ASCII Code of the key that was pressed (Decimal value). Pressed List of common ASCII Codes
ENTER = 13, TAB = 9, BACKSPACE = 8, SPACE = 32, PAGEUP = 33, PAGEDOWN = 34, END = 35, HOME = 36, DELETE = 46, UPARROW = 38, LEFTARROW = 37, DOWNARROW = 40, RIGHTARROW = 39, 0 = 48, 1 = 49, 2 = 50, 3 = 51, 4 = 52, 5 = 53, 6 = 54, 7 = 55, 8 = 56, 9 = 57, A = 97, B = 98, C = 99, D = 100, E = 101, F = 102, G = 103, H = 104, I = 105, J = 106, K = 107, L = 108, M = 109, N = 110, O = 111, P = 112, Q = 113, R = 114, S = 115, T = 116, U = 117, V = 118, W = 119, X = 120, Y = 121, Z = 122

Modifier

TIP: USE THE .. BUTTON TO CHOOSE BETWEEN THE MOST COMMON CHARPRESSED VALUES. The modifier-key that was used while pressing the key (CTRL, SHIFT, ALT, and so on)

The Condition System

When the trigger system is in place, you have the option to use the condition system. The condition system allows you to react to something, but only if that something upholds certain conditions. Sample: Business Partner React to the new activity button being pressed (trigger), but only if the chosen BP type is Customer (condition). The condition system allows you to use one of three conditions: Condition No Description This basically means that there is no condition, but the tied universal function should be

Thousands-separator = , Dates YYYY-MM-DD (2007-04-20 = 20th of April 2007) Here you need to tell the system how it should treat the value from the item when comparing it to the expected value. Value types are String Number (Integer) Currency (float) Date Select the Universal Functionyou would like to activate if condition is true.

In the SQL you can use the syntax $[$<ITEM>.<COLUMN>.<TYPE>] for dynamic values from items and $[<TABLE>.<FIELD>.<TYPE>] for data sources (Both work very similar to formatted searches). NB. IF YOU USE AN ITEM THAT DOES NOT HAVE A COLUMN THEN SET THE COLUMN PART TO 0.

Description Each configuration will need a unique code in order to function. When you switch to add-mode, the system will automatically suggest a code (FB-1, FB-2, and so on). The form type for the window you want to configure Function Buttons for. The form type is found by opening the form you need form type for. Activate the system information (View > System information), and the information is displayed in the bottom left corner of the client when you hold the mouse over an item .

Description Form Width & Height

This is a simple description of the form type. The information is not used elsewhere in the add-on. On the most common form types, this description appears automatically. These fields are only relevant for forms that are sizeable. They ensure function buttons to be shown properly. The most common forms automatically fill out these values. SPECIAL NOTE: IF YOU USE FUNCTION BUTTONS AND ITEM PLACEMENT TOOL ON THE SAME FORM TYPE, PLEASE CLEAR THE WIDTH AND HEIGHT OF THE ITEM PLACEMENT TOOL CONFIGURATION TO ALLOW THE SIZING FOR THE BUTTONS.

Button Width Users

Video: Get help here if you experience having problems with the form width and height This is an optional field that allows you to specify the button width. If nothing is specified the button will use its default 100 pixel width. Here you have the option via the edittext and the radiobuttons to make your configurations user-specific (making it possible to have one user who has one unique configuration, while another user has a different configuration)

The above screenshot result in that only the two users with usercodes user1 and user2 will see this configuration, while the screenshot below makes the configuration active to all other users except

NB: IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY THAT A USER DOESNOT OVERLAP OR IS INCLUDED IN TWO OR MORE CONFIGURATIONS. IF THAT IS THE CASE, THE SYSTEM WILL WORK WITH THE FIRST CONFIGURATION IT
FINDS AND IGNORE THE ADDITIONAL CONFIGURATIONS

Active The 10 Buttons

Here you have the option to temporarily deactivate a configuration instead of removing it entirely. You can specify up to 10 buttons. Field Description

Caption

You freely decide the caption of the button. TIP: IT IS POSSIBLE TO MAKE KEYBOARD SHORTCUTS WITH THE FUNCTION BUTTONS. THIS IS DONE BY PLACING A & IN THE CAPTION OF THE BUTTON. THE NEXT CHARACTER AFTER THE & WILL ACT AS THE SHORTCUT USING ALT + CHARACTER. (NB. THIS TIP WILL NOT WORK ON BUTTONS TIED TO A FORMATTED SEARCH, SINCE THE ALT-KEY IS SUCH ARE USED TO OPEN THE FORMATTED SEARCH CONFIGURATION)

Find/Add/OK Checkboxes

These checkboxes control in which modes the button should be enabled. Example: If you put a button on the Business Partner Window, but the function of the button only makes sense if a Business Partner is selected, then you should remove the check in the Find and Add checkboxes. This will result in the button only being enabled in OKmode (Where a Business Partner is selected). For each button you can bind one of the 30+ functions available. These are: Function Description Formatted Activate a formatted search like it would normally Search be done using SHIFT + F2. The first time you will need to define the formatted search. If you later need to edit the formatted search, hold down the ALT key while pressing the button. The result can be transferred to a specific field or column andidentifiers can also be used. See sections below for more information about these options. User defined Enables you to activate any menu item in the SAP menu Business One, including other add-ons menu items, for example the XL reporters menu items. The menu items can be found using the View > System Information and hovering over each item using the top menu. The MenuUID should be entered in the Arguments field for the button User Query Enables you to activate a userquery in the database. (Use this for the userqueries instead of the User defined menu because the menuid of a userqueryis not static) Since there is no place in the client where you can find the true id of a userquery you will need to use the following SQL sentence to find the key (Called Internal Key (Fieldname: IntrnalKey)).

Introduction to windows and pixels Windows in SAP Business One have a width and height in pixels. Pixel values always have its startingpoint form in the upper left corner just below the Title bar. (0,0) Sometimes windows are also referred to as Forms. Sizeable windows are a bit different because they can change their width and height. Items on a window have four pixelvalues: 1. Left (Number of pixels between left border and items left edge) 2. Top (Number of pixels between the bottom of the Title bar and the top edge of the item) 3. Width (The width of the item in pixels) 4. Height (The height of the item in pixels) Most items have a height of 14 pixels

Pixels can cause problems if user uses different fontsizes. See here how to deal with this issue: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCg6gDtRS-k

Letter Merge
The Letter Merge functionality makes you able to merge the Business Partner Master Data into a Microsoft Word 2003, 2007 or 2010 document. This can be done for a single Business Partner, but it can also be done for multiple Business Partners in one go. This module requires that Microsoft Word is installed and configured with .Net Programmability. Online E-Learning is also available for this module. Click here to watch it Create a Microsoft Word Template Before the functionality can be used, you need to create a template in Word were you specify which data which will be merged into the finished document. 1. 2. 3. 4. Open word In Business One go to Tools > User tables > BOY_20_BMFT Letter merge merge table In column Document value copy paste the wanted values into the word document. The following types are valid: a. .doc Standard Word 2003 document. b. .docx Standard Word 2007/2010 document. c. .docm Word 2007/2010 document with macros enabled. d. .dot Word 2003 template. e. .dotx Word 2007/2010 template. f. .dotm Word 2007/2010 template with macros enabled. 5. Save the document as a valid type. The Merge table In SAP Business One a user defined table: BOY_20_BMFT Letter merge Merge table contains all the keywords needed to create a template Field Document Value Pre BP Value Description Copy/paste the value you wish to use in your word template Characters which can be placed before the Document Value in the word document. This value is only visible after you merge the letter. The value could be a ( or or { or Name: and etc. BP Value is the field name Characters which can be placed after the Document Value in the word document. This value is only visible after you merge the letter. The value could be a ) or or } or end and etc. There are two ways to represent the BP Value 1 Always = BP Value will always be shown 2 Leave blank if BP value is empty = BP Value will only be shown if the Document Value contains data

Letter Merge: Daily use

There are two ways to use the merge function. The single merge, or the mass letter merge: 1. Single merge, where you merge the data from a single Business Partner. a. This is done from the BP Master data, by clicking on the Letter merge button, which will open the Letter merge window. i. TIP: IF THIS BUTTON IS IN THE WAY OR OBSCURED BY OTHER BUTTONS IT IS POSSIBLE TO MOVE ITS POSITION USING THE ITEM PLACEMENT TOOL b. Select the template or file you wish to use as your merge file. c. Check the Save as activity checkbox if you wish to generate an activity based on the letter merge. d. Click the Merge button to start merging.

2. Mass Letter Merge a. Open the Mass Letter Merge under the Business Partner menu. b. Select the relevant Business Partners from the BP selection combobox or from the BP selection window by clicking on the Advanced button in the upper right corner. c. Select a template you wish to use or choose a filepathtowhere you have a word template located. You can also write a path to a file. d. Check the Save as activity checkbox if you wish to generate activities based on the letter merge. Doing so will create one activity for each BP selected. e. Click the Merge button to start merging. The finished result is a word document with the selected Business Partner Data; one page per Business Partner. As you can see, both ways of mergeing has a way of creating activities. This function does not contain all the options available when manualy creating an activity, but merly the most important options. There is no wayto change an activity created with letter merge, except manually editing the activities your self. Use this function with care when doing mass letter merge, as it can generate a lot of activities depending on your selection. If you want the template used to be attached to the activity you can check the Attach merge file checkbox before merging. In order to use this function, you need to have an attachment path defined. This is done at Main Menu > Administration > System Initialisation> General Settings > Path > Attachments Folder. Using the BP selection Advanced window.

This window allows you to specify which Business Partners you want to target in your letter merge. This can be done by making a template that can be used for BP selection directly from the Mass Letter Merge window. It can also be done by making your selection in this window using its controls and then clicking Ok to return to the Mass Letter Merge window with your selection. Using the Template manager section will help you manage your templates. The Simple tab provides simple means to select Business Partners, while the Advanced tab enables you to select by writing SQL. It is possible to have a single template that uses both the Simple and Advanced tab, but not at the same time. If a template is making selections by the Simple, you must edit and Update it, having the Advanced tab open, to change the tab it uses. It is a good idea clicking the Preview button often when working with templates/selections, to ensure its working the right way. When a BP selection template is saved, the add-on generates a SQL select statement. This SQL statement is what the add-on uses to select business partners when you select a BP selection template. This is import to remember when creating such templates, as not only the selected business partners will be shown when using a template. Also the business partners not selected, and future business partners that meets the templates selection criteria, will show up upon selection of the template.

While preparing a complex mass letter merge it can be difficult to make a template, that selects specific Business Partners, if they have too different data. Therefore it is possible to specify your selection by selecting more than once. This can be done by selecting a BP selection template in the Mass Letter Merge window, and then a different selection from the BP selection Advanced window. In this case the system will ask you if you want to add to or overwrite, your current selection.

You can do this as many times as you like to complete your selection. Business Partners already in your selection is automatically removed, if present in your new selection, ensuring that no Business Partner is represented more than once in your final selection.

Example: The Sales Employee Combo box - No Sales employee has value -1 as empty value (value can also be seen on debug information as the value is shown before the form type) Example: The matrix on Sales Order contains a combobox column labeled VAT Code. If you want to assign the values S0, SE and SF as empty values, you enter the following string in the Empty value column in the Mandatory Fields: Configuration window: S0;SE;SF TIP: IF YOU WANT MAKE A UDF THAT HAVE A DECIMAL TYPE (EXAMPLE A PRICE) MANDATORY YOU NEED TO PROVIDE THE VALUE 0.0 AS EMPTY VALUE If the mandatory field is on line level you need to provide the Column UID for the column (can also be seen using debug information). Item UID must also be set. The ignore last row checkbox is created to enable the add-on to do checks on document columns. SAP Business One always leaves an extra line for new data on sales and purchase documents, and the last row needs to be ignored here. Remove only the check if you work with a matrix that does not leave such extra lines.

Here you can assign the invoice a specific document series. Here you choose the Business Partner the invoice template is linked to. Press Tab to choose from a list. After selection, you can choose a contact person for the invoice.

Here you can set a customer ref. number that will appear on the invoice. Here you choose which day of the month the invoice should be posted. Using invoice days, you can have multiple invoice groups in a month (10 invoices on the 1 st and 5 invoices at the 20th of the month). NB. Since not every month have 31 days, setting an invoice day to 31 might give unexpected results. 30 is a better choice. A special exception is February that have 28 or 29 days depending if it is a leap year. If 30 set for February it will create the invoice on the last day (28 or 29) By using the checkboxes, you can set which months of the year the invoice should be created. This way, you can make an invoice monthly, quarterly, yearly or custom months. You can use the All and None button to quickly check or uncheck all months. If the Business Partner selected in the template is multi-currency, then it is possible to choose the currency that the document should be in. Here you can set the header sales employee of the invoice (BPs default is selected when choosing Business Partner but can be overridden). Here you can set the project of the invoice (BPs default is selected when choosing Business Partner but can be overridden). Here you can set the payment terms of the invoice (BPs default is selected when choosing Business Partner but can be overridden). Here you can set the shipping type of the invoice. Here you can choose the indicator of the invoice BPs default is selected when choosing Business Partner but can be overridden). Here you can write your comments that are transferred to the invoice. Here you can set the invoice discount %. This checkbox allows you to make a template inactive instead of removing it completely. This is useful when you as an example do a service on a monthly basis, but for some reason do not need the service. Using the report described later you can quickly locate inactive templates. Here you have the option to set an overall period that the invoice template is active. You have the option to enter none, one or both fields. Default is no dates. These lines works like normal A/R invoice lines would work, where you choose an item, enter its quantity, price and so on. The most essential but not all (70+) columns are included. Special Column: Unit Price When an item is added to a template or the price of an item is updated automatically, the customers price after discount is inserted (using special prices etc.). The discount field is not changed when this happens. The columns can be edited as other columns and

NB: IF ANY ERROR OCCUR, THERE WILL ALWAYS BE PERFORMED A ROLLBACK (NONE OF THE INVOICES WERE CREATED) NB: THE RECURRING INVOICE SYSTEM HAS A HISTORY LOG THAT PREVENTS INVOICES FROM BEING PROCESSED BY THE WIZARD MORE THAN ONCE. IF YOU FOR SOME REASON NEED TO RERUN THE INVOICES, YOU WOULD NEED TO CHECK THE CHECKBOX INCLUDE ALREADY INVOICED TEMPLATES, BUT PLEASE NOTE THAT IT WILL INCLUDE ALL INVOICES AGAIN NB: IF YOUR INVOICES ARE IN A FOREIGN CURRENCY OR THE LOCAL CURRENCY VARIES FROM THE SYSTEM CURRENCY, THERE WILL BE CHECKED TO SEE IF ALL EXCHANGE RATES ARE SET. IF THEY ARE NOT, THE INVOICE WIZARD IS ABORTED AND THE EXCHANGE RATE WINDOW IS OPENED. ENTER THE CORRECT EXCHANGE RATES AND RUN THE WIZARD AGAIN.

Recurring Invoice required permissions In order to work with the recurring invoices the absolute minimum authorizations are the following Administration > System Initialization > Document Numbering need to be read-only or full access [since number series can be chosen on the recurring invoice] Business Partner > Business Partner Master Data need to be read only or full access [since you choose business partners for the recurring invoice]

With the above authorizations you should be able to add recurring invoices template Of cause it requires more authorizations to run the Recurring Invoice Wizard itself (Same right as you need to add an invoice)

Tab Control
The Tab control system allows you to define how a specific window reacts on the user clicking the TAB key to move between the fields. Online E-Learning is also available for this module. Click here to watch it

Tab control setup SAPs default tab-control (also called tab-order) follows on of two scenarios

While both of these methods are correct, they tend to give additional tabs needed before you reach the wanted field. The tab control system allows you to change the (As an example, on the BP master data if you dont use the foreign name field you can make a new tab control that skips this field and save you a tab click) Create a tab control template WARNING: IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO CHANGE WHAT THE INITIAL STARTUP FIELD IS WITH TAB-CONTROL AS THAT IS DEFINED BY SAP. IF YOU WISH TO SET A NEW STARTUP FIELD THEN YOU CAN USE THE B1 VALIDATION TO DO IT. Once you have activated the Tab Control system you might notice that it does not seem to get any additional configurations. That is because the configuration happens directly and interactively on the window that you want to configure. Here, we use the Sales order as sample, so we open this window.

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 124/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

In the sample we wish to do the following: We wish to start in the customer field Then go to the Name field Then go to the date fields And finally go to the Customer Reference Number

In order to do so we hold down the CTRL + SHIFT keys and double-click on our initial field (That being the Customer field). Doing so brings up the following dialog

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 125/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

Since we wish to create a new tab-control we choose start which brings us to the next option.

Here you can choose if the change you are about to make is something that should be used by all the B1UP users or if the setup you are about to record is only for the current loged in user. In this case we choose All users. The window is now in record mode and have included the first element in the new tab control. All you have to do now is click click the fields in the order that you want the new tab control to be.

As you click you way to the fields they turn green to indicate that they are now part of the tab control. When you reach the end of you configuration, hold down CTRL + SHIFT again and double click on the last field you wish to be part of the configuration. When doing so, you will be prompted to save your data.

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 126/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

If you press Yes your new configuration will be saved.

As indicated in the messagebox, you should now close the window that was used for the configuration, and now when you open it again it will use the new tab-control.

Modifiy a tab control Modifying a tab control is quite easy. All you need to do is go to a window a record a new tab control. If that window already has a recorded tab control it will simply be replaced. Remove a customized tab control If you for some reason wish to remove you own tab-control and revert back to SAPs original tab control, all you need to do is to go to the window that you wish to revert and click CTRL + SHIFT + double click on any field on the window.

B1 Usability Package Manual

Here you have the option to press Remove to remove the existing tab control. If you do so you will get the following options.

Again you need to choose if you wish to revert all users or only the current user NB: IF A USER HAVE A SPECIFIC CONFIGURATION WHILE ALL OTHER HAVE ANOTHER, REMOVING THE CONFIGURATION FOR THE CURRENT USER WILL CAUSE HIM/HER TO NOW USE THE CONFIGURATION FOR ALL USERS INSTEAD After your choice you get a confirmation on moving back to the original tab control

Template System
The Template System makes you able to create a template for selected data in almost every window in Business One. The saved template can be loaded at any time you require it. This can be very helpful in many cases, e.g. if you have a specific kind of Business Partners which you create regularly, you can load the template and get the selected data in the window in two clicks. The Template System will also come in handy, when you want to run a report with the same parameters several times. The Template System ensures that the selection window is filled out the same way every time, so you will avoid unintended selections. Online E-Learning is also available for this module. Click here to watch it Template System: Create templates The Template System can be used on most windows in Business One. Before creating the template, the system requires data in the fields wanted in the template. Then right click on the window and select Create Template.

When Create Template is selected, the following window is displayed for creating the template.

This will give the following window

Choose between all templates created for this window. If you press OK, the chosen template will be loaded into the window were you selected the template. The finished result is a window with the selected data inserted and ready for further adjustments. Template System: Limitations The Template System works on most windows where data is entered. Some Business One windows have a functionality called a Matrix. Due to system limitations the Template System is not able to control the matrix in those windows. Here is an example from delivery where the system cannot control the content in the red frame.

Toolbox
The Toolbox is a series of smaller functionalities, which in themselves is too small to be a module. Therefore, they have been collected in the Toolbox-module where each of these features can be turned on and off at will. The toolbox has the following configuration which is located in Administration > Add-Ons > B1 Usability Package > Module configuration Currently the toolbox consists of over 40 smaller functionalities. Online E-Learning is also available for this module. Click here to watch it Toolbox: Business Partners Tab

Automatic Numbers Auto numbers gives you the opportunity to assign auto numbers to added Business Partners. Business Partners are split in three BP-series; one for Customers one for Leads and one for Suppliers.

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 135/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

The functionality wihout any configruation simply determines the highest number and suggests this number +1. The numbers are only guidelines and can be overwritten if needed. This means that in order to start a series, you must override this number of the first Business Partner you add (in SAP Business One the Business Partner codes are alphanumeric Can contain both numbers and letters. The automatic number system will by default ignore all codes containing letters). TIP: IF YOU USE QUICK CREATE BUSINESS PARTNER THE AUTO-NUMBER WILL ALSO BE SUGGESTED ON THOSE. You can customize the numbers suggested and add ignore cases to correct mistakes using the configuration window opened by pressing the button.

The SQL is the default SQL uses by the auto number system to determine the next number for Lead, Customer and Supplier types. You can modify the SQL to fit your needs and should it be needed restore to default using the restore button. You can add ignore cases to make the auto number system ignore these numbers. TIP: YOU CAN ADD A PREFIX TO YOUR CUSTOMERS BY REPLACING THE CUSTOMER SQL WITH THIS: SELECT 'C'+CAST((MAX(CAST(SUBSTRING(CardCode,2,LEN(CardCode)-1) AS BigInt))+1) AS Varchar(15)) AS NextCode FROM OCRD T0 WHERE (T0.Cardtype='L' OR T0.Cardtype='C') AND Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S Page 136/253

Futhermore, the e-mail address of the contact persons can be activated by pressing CTRL + Double-click Use option to update Payment Terms on Sales Orders This option allows you to update payment terms on open Sales Orders if you change the payment term on the BP Master Data Window. If you change the Payment Term to a new and click update, the system will ask you if you want to update the payment terms on all open Sales Orders that belongs to the updated Business Partner. If you press yes, the system goes through all the orders and updates the payment term. The system only asks for update if 1: Payment Term was updated and 2: The Business Partner has any open sales orders. Validate Federal Tax Id (EU Only) NB: THIS IS AN ONLINE SERVICE THAT REQUIRE AN ACTIVE INTERNET CONNECTION. IF YOU USE PROXY YOU NEED TO SET UP THE PROXY DETAILS IN THE SAP BUSINESS ONE GENERAL SETTINGS Enables you to validate Federal Tax Ids of Business Partners in the European Union (From webservice http://ec.europa.eu/taxation_customs/vies/services/checkVatService.wsdl). If activated, the add-on will check the entered Federal Tax Id on the Business Partner and determine if is valid. If not valid, user will be prompted that Id is not valid and want to continue.

Use Hide from List System This option allows you to hide certain business partners from all lists that show business partners. This is very helpful if you have business partners who are inactive.

NB: NO ENTRIES WILL EVER BE FILTERED FROM THE MASTER DATA WINDOW; ONLY ALL OTHER WINDOWS. NB: EVEN IF THE ENTRIES CAN BE HIDDEN FROM LISTS, THEY WILL NOT BE HIDDEN FROM REPORTS THAT USE FROM/TO CODES,
GROUPS OR PROPERTIES

Use Show only Current User BPs System This option works a little bit like the Hide from List System, but is intended as a filter for Business Partners. When setup correctly, the current user logged into SAP will only see the Business Partners that he or she is the sales employee for. For the system to be able to work as intended, a mapping between the sales employees and the SAP Business One users must be provided.

As you can see in the screenshot above, this is done in the column B1 Username, found in the Sales Employees Setup window, which can be found here: Administration > Setup > General > Sales Employees. Here you insert all the usercodes needed. The correct value for each user is found in the USER_CODE field in the OUSR table. When this setup is completed this filter should ensure that only specific Business Partners are shown in choose from list windows throughout the system. This functionality can be affected by the Hide from List functionality. Be sure to set the Hide from List userdefined field to No if you wish to be able to see a specific Business Partner by using the Show only Current User BPs System. NB: THE FILTER ON SALES EMPLOYEES AFFTECT ALL WINDOWS IN SAP BUSINESS ONE EXCEPT THE BP MASTER DATA WINDOW (BECAUSE THIS IS WHERE THE FILTER IS MADE) Use Mandatory Contact Person This option makes it mandatory to have at least one Contact Person on a Business Partner.

Payment means config (In) Payment means used in incoming payments lacks the functionality to have a default tab of payment means (Check / Bank transfer / Credit Card / Cash). Also the Bank Transfer option lacks a default account (Most companies use one bank account). Finally, if allowed in the configuration, the CTRL+B transfer of the amount paid is almost always something that needs to be done. This functionality gives you the option to have a default tab, a default bank transfer account, and each time you open the window, the function automatically does the tedious CTRL+B for you Payment means config (Out) As with incoming payment, outgoing payments also does not normally support a default tab, and here it is the default account for Cash that is missing.

Question

Display the message as a question with a Yes and a No button. If the no button is pressed, the add-on will block event regardless of what the block event checkbox is set to (See below for more)

Block Event

Here you can decide if the message should block the event that caused it - resulting in SAP, canceling what it is doing (Only messages shown in a Before Action Events can be blocked). Sample: If you have created a B1 Validation Configuration for a field, then when you are about to leave the field, check for a specific value, and if this is not present, the system should display a message.

Must Have Specific Value Function If you choose the Must have specific value type, a matrix appears in the configuration allowing you to tell which items/columns that need to have a value and if needed what values are valid values.

Field Item UID Column Uid Description Ignore last

Description The items Uid that must have a value. If the above item is a matrix, you will need to include which column you wish to have values in. Your description of the chosen item.

Remove only the check if you work with a matrix that does not leave such extra lines. Here you can define how your empty and valid values should be treated, and how the tested value should be converted. Please note the following formatdefinition used in the valid values and empty values when comparing the data. Type Description String Strings are compared as is Number Always define here without thousands separator Date Always define in the following format yyyy-mm-dd Currency Always define here without thousands separator and with . as decimal separator (The global invariant separator) Here you define values you set as valid for the item. You have two options here (Cannot be combined): Option Description Specific Values are separated by ; so if a, b or c is the valid values you should Values enter a;b;c. NB: PLEASE NOTICE THAT THE SYSTEM IS CASESENSITIVE. Range values Here you define a range of values using - as separator. As an example, (Only used in if you want values to be between 1 and 10, you should set valid values to Number and 1-10. If nothing is entered in the valid values, any value is valid except the Currency) one defined in the empty value column. Here it is possible to enter what is considered an empty value (if no valid values are defined). For most fields there is nothing entered. But some combo boxes have different empty values. EXAMPLE: THE SALES EMPLOYEE COMBO BOX "- NO SALES EMPLOYEE - " HAS VALUE -1 AS EMPTY VALUE (VALUE CAN ALSO BE SEEN ON DEBUG INFORMATION AS THE VALUE IS SHOWN BEFORE THE FORM TYPE)

* Alternative to the Document keywords (ORDR = Order, OINV = Invoice etc.), Payments, Inventory transfers Journal Entries and Production Orders you can write ORDR_ENTRY or OINV_ENTRY to work on the internal key (DocEntry) if you show this in the column (Example: 1[OINV_ENTRY]). This is rare but people having identical document numbers (DocNum) in different series can use this. Here you write the SQL that creates the data for the report.

TIP: YOU WILL BE ABLE TO USE DYNAMIC VALUES USING THE $[$<ITEM>.<COLUMN>.<TYPE>] FOR DYNAMIC VALUES FROM ITEMS AND $[<TABLE>.<FIELD>.<TYPE>] FOR DATA SOURCES (AS DESCRIBED IN THE VALIDATION CONFIGURATION) SQL Here you have the option to define up to 20 SQL Variables ([%0], [%1], [%2], [%3] [%19]).

It can a custom value or a list of common values like Business partners etc. If can find the list of value you wish you also have the option to define a SQL sentence that should retrieve the values as a combobox. The caption of the variable (The text shown when prompting the user for the value) If you in the Source select SQL as source, you define the SQL here (else it is not used). The SQL sentence should be a SELECT statement with two selected columns. first value will be seen as the value of the selection and second will be seen as the description.

SELECT <VALUE>,<DESCRIPTION> FROM <TABLE> Sample: SELECT CardCode, CardName FROM OCRD would result in a list of all Business Partners. CardCode will be the value for the customer select and CardName will be the description that help them choose the value. Alternative you can define the SQL Variables syntax manually: This is done by using the following syntax for each of the 20 variables: %<id>[<type>|<description>]; If you wish to use the variables, then you can format each by changing the syntax. The following types are possible 0 (treat as string) STRING (as above) INTEGER (treat as a whole number) NUMBER (treat as a number with decimals) DATE (treat as a Date) YES_NO (combobox with a Yes and No value (Yes is default)) NO_YES (combobox with a No and a Yes value (No is default)) Tableid from one of the following to create Choose From Lists: o Business Partner (OCRD), Items (OITM), Warehouse (OWHS), Sales Opportunity (OOPR), GL Account (OACT), Activity (OCLG), Employee (OHEM), Picklist (OPKL), Customer Equipment Card (OINS), ServiceCall (OSCL), Service Contract (OCTR), Solution Knowledge Base (OSLT), Journal Entry (OJDT), Sales/Purchase Documents (OQUT, ORDR, ODLN, ORDN, OINV, ORIN, ODPI, OPOR, OPDL, ORPD, OPCH, ORPC, ODPO), Incoming Payment (ORCT), Outgoing Payments (OVPM), Goods receipt (OIGN), Goods Issue (OIGE), Production Order (OWOR), Project Codes (OPRJ).

As shown in this example:

As you can see in the above configuration we use [%0] and [%1] to get a from and a to date. Running the SQL Report will before the result give us the following window where we can enter the from and to date defined (%3, %4 and %5 is not shown since they are not used):

Refresh Option Auto Refresh

Here you have the option to add a refresh-button to the Report. If you choose this option you can press the refresh-button on the report to re-run your SQL. With this option you have the ability to make the SQL you show autorefresh it data in a regualr interval. This is handy if you have a display that "statically" show a report and need to update automatically.

Select Data Target

This gives you the option to turn your SQL report into an advanced selection-window and send data back to the window that opened it.If your target is a matrix and you select multiple lines, they will all be send to the matrix. The values sent back are based on the order of the columns. If you as example have an itemcode in column 1 and a target of $[$38.1.0] the itemcode will be transferred to the item column

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 177/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

It is also possible to select multiple columns by specifying multiple targets separated by a ;. If you as an example have a SQL result with a itemcode in column 1 and a price in column 2 you could specify the following Select-target: $[$38.1.0];$[$38.14.CURRENCY]. This will result in the itemcode going to column 1 (itemcode) and the price going to column 14 (unitprice). If you have a column that you do not wish to transfer then simply add a ; In the above example if you had an Itemname between the itemcode and the price you Select-target should be $[$38.1.0];;$[$38.14.CURRENCY]

NB: SELECTING MULTIPLE BACK TO BOM-ITEMS IS NOT SUPPORTED! NB: SELECTING MULTIPLE BACK IS ONLY SUPPORTED ON SALES AND PURCHAE DOCUMENTS! As you can see the normal Close-button is replaced by a select and a cancel button that allow you to select data. Content Creator Using the content creator function type, you are able to add additional content (items) to windows (buttons, labels text-fields, folders and so on). You might know the Item Placement Tool which does some of the same features, but this can do much more advanced editing.

The configuration consists on a matrix, where each row is a new item and each column is a property for the item. There are many properties (25+), but not all are used for each item type. Property Active ItemUid (Mandatory) Description Controls if this row is active for use. Uncheck this if you temporarily wants to disable an item. In order to place an item on a window, it must have a unique id for the form. In order to avoid conflict with other add-ons, this should have prefix (e.g.UF_xxx). If aUid is not unique, an error will occur. NB: A UID SHOULD CONSIST OF LETTERS (ABC), NUMBERS (123) OR/AND UNDERSCORES (_). CHARACTERS LIKE SPACE, DASHES OR SPECIAL CHARACTERS ARE TECHNICALLY POSSIBLE BUT NOT RECOMMENDED AS THESE ARE NOT SUPPORTED BY THE $[$<ITEM>.<COL>.<TYPE>] SYNTAX. WARNING: IF YOU USE THE CONTENT CREATOR TO PLACE DATA ONTO OTHER B1UP WINDOWS IT IS HIGHLY RECOMMENDED THAT YOU USE THE PREFIX "BOYX_" FOR UID AS THIS IS A SPECIAL PREFIX B1UP UNDERSTAND SO IT CAN CONFLICTS DURING UPGRADES. EXMAPLE IF YOU WISH TO ADD A BUTTON ONTO THE RECURRING INVOICE WINDOW CALL IT "BOYX_01 " AS THEUID.

Doing this will cause B1UP to on the fly tell the report that it should the currently logged in database instead of the on embedded into the report. If you have problem with Set this database as Datasource for report you can try the This database Compatible Connection. This will force the Crystal Report to use predefined value that should work on every system. Connection Press this button in order to set the DB Information connection

Action: Save Report

You also have the option to directly save the report. For that you need to provide a filename and a file type. TIP: YOU HAVE THE OPTION TO MAKE THE FILENAME UNIQUE BY USING THE FOLLOWING KEYWORDS IN THE FILENAME: - $[DATE] FOR CURRENT DATE - $[TIME] FOR CURRENT TIME (HH:MM) - $[LONGTIME] FOR EXTENDED CURRENT TIME (HH:MM:SS) - THE NORMAL $[$ITEM.COLUMN.TYPE] DYNAMIC SYNTAX What type the file is If the file saved should be opened after generation. Finally you have the option to print a report directly. For that you will need to provide the printer name. You can either enter it or choose it by pressing the "" and chose from the list

File Type Open Action: Print Report

Action: Block Event

You also have the option to choose the number of copies. The block event is a special action that you can do after you have launched a report. It lets you block the action that SAP was normally about to do when your launched your report. An example where this is handy is if you replace the normal print functionality of SAP Business One (You want to press the print toolbar button and launch your report but do not want the print from SAP as well (you want to block it))

Macro With the macro function, you are able to simulate and script events in SAP Business One. This work much like many of the preset functions in Function Buttons, but here you have much more freedom and advanced options.

The configuration consists of one big text-area, where you enter the macro-commands that form you user defined functionality. The Macro-syntax is as follows: <Command>(<arguments>); Each command can be on one line or on multiple lines as long as they are separated by a ; Arguments are entered inside the commands () Some commands do not need any arguments (but still the ()) while others need more than one argument. Multiple arguments are separated by a | char. Online Guide: Understanding Macro Commands Online Guide: Understanding Dynamic Syntax Commands Activate(<menuUid>); or Activate(<@userTable>); or Activate(<@defaultForm>); or Activate(); Description Activate a menuUid to open a new window or do a specific task on the current window (Switch mode, Go to last Line and so on.) Alternative you can pass along a usertable (Indicate this by the @ as prefix) or a default form. If done so the activation will activate the indicated usertables/default form default window normally located under Tools > User-defined windows / Tools > Default Forms You also have the option not to pass along a menuUid/userTable (This is useful when you want to use a command (transfer, set, ect.) on the active window, but that window was not opened by a menuitem (Example: if you open the Activity window using the New activity

Sample: Activate(@ABC_MYUDT); will open the default window for usertable ABC_MYUDT. Video: Click here to watch more information on how to find menu-uids. Call this command to prepare the system to auto-press the next Popup message that appear in the system.

AutoPressNextPopup(); AutoPressNextPopup($[$item.0. 0]); AutoPressNextPopup($[$item.0. 0]|timeout);

In order to work you need to call this command BEFORE you execute the command that cause the popup. The command can be called with either zero, one or 2 commands. Argument Item Description On a popup box there can be multiple options (OK/Cancel, Yes/No, Yes/No/Cancel, etc.). If you want the default button you dont need to provide this command and B1UP will choose for you but you you want a certain result you need to provide the Item Uid of the button you wish to press. In order to prevent that misconfigurations and unforseen scenarios cause unintended autopresses if the intended fails, the Command have a built in timerfunction that dismiss an auto-press if the popup does not appear within 5 sec of calling the command. 5 sec is commenly more than enough, but if you have a very long operation you might need to reaise the timeout to a higher value than the default 5 sec.

Timeout

Samples: AutoPressNextPopup(); press next popup's default button if it happen within 5 sec. AutoPressNextPopup($[$2.0.0]); press next popup's button with uid = 2 if it happen within 5 sec. AutoPressNextPopup($[$2.0.0]|10); press next popup's button with uid

but need to shift the parent/child relationship one back. Example: In a macro you are on a Sales order and open a Purchase order. From the purchase order you also open a new window and do some macro logic. Now after this logic you wish the sales order as parent and purchase order as child (at the moment the 3rd window is child and purchase order is parent). If you at this point in your macro call the PopFormStack command you can shift the forms back getting the correct parent /child relationship as before the 3rd window opened. Simulate keystrokes on the keyboard. Warning: You should only use SendKeys if everything else fails as almost actions can be done without SendKeys (More info here). The reason SendKeys are not optimal is it depends on the machine speed and what works on a fast machine might not work on a slow. The plus sign (+), caret (^), percentage sign (%), tilde (~), and parentheses ( ) have special meanings in SendKeys. To send one of these characters, enclose it within braces ( {}). For example, to send the plus sign, use {+}. Brackets ([ ]) have no special meaning in SendKeys, but you must enclose them in braces. In other applications, brackets do have a special meaning that may be significant when dynamic data exchange (DDE) occurs. To specify brace characters, use {{} and {}}. To send characters that arenot displayed when you press a key, such as ENTER or TAB, and keys that represent actions rather than characters, use the codes shown below: Key Backspace Break Caps Lock Delete Down Arrow End Enter Esc Help Home Insert Left Arrow Num Lock Page Down Page Up Right Arrow Scroll Lock Tab Up Arrow Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S Code {BACKSPACE}, {BS}, or {BKSP} {BREAK} {CAPSLOCK} {DELETE} or {DEL} {DOWN} {END} {ENTER} {ESC} {HELP} {HOME} {INSERT} or {INS} {LEFT} {NUMLOCk} {PGDN} {PGUP} {RIGHT} {SCROLLLOCK} {TAB} {UP} Page 200/253

SendKeys(<dataToSend>);

B1 Usability Package Manual

F1, F2, F3...

{F1}, {F2}, {F3}...

To specify key combinations with any of the SHIFT, CTRL, and ALT keys, precede the key code with one or more of the following codes: Key Shift Ctrl Alt Code {+} {^} {%}

To specify that any combination of SHIFT, CTRL, and ALT should be held down while several other keys are pressed, enclose the code for those keys in parentheses. For example, to specify holding down SHIFT while E and C are pressed, use " +(EC)". To specify holding down SHIFT, while E is pressed, followed by C without SHIFT, use " +EC". Sample: SendKeys(abc); will enter abc in current field, SendKeys(^P); will initiate the print-dialog while SendKeys(+{F2}) will activate current item's formatted search. TIP: YOU CAN USE DYNAMIC DATA FROM THE CURRENT WINDOW IN THE VALUE TO SET USING $[$ITEM.COLUMN.TYPE]. TIP: YOU CAN MAKE THE VALUE TO SET COME FROM AN SQL-SENTENCE IF YOU START IT WITH SQL:<SQL-STATEMENT>. Can be used to only execute macro commands if a specific expression (Condition) is fulfilled.
IF (expression) BEGIN (statement) END ELSEIF (expression) BEGIN (statement) END ELSE BEGIN (do if nothing before is valid) END

IF, ELSEIF, ELSE (Conditional commands)

When the macro meets an If, it expects a boolean condition - for example: $[$8.0.NUMBER] > 0, which means "the item 8 on current form contains a number that is greater than zero" - and evaluates that condition. If the condition is true, the statements following the BEGIN are executed. Otherwise, the execution check the ElseIf block to see if the expression is true(optional).

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 201/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

If neither If or ElseIf is true the Else block will get executed (optional). FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO USE IF/ELSEIF/ELSE PLEASE SEE THE GUIDE UNDERSTANDING MACRO CONDITIONAL COMMANDS Can be used to execute macro commands repeatedly if a specific expression (Condition) is fulfilled.
WHILE (expression) BEGIN (statement) END

WHILE (Conditional command)

When the macro meets an while, it expects a boolean condition - for example: $[$8.0.NUMBER] > 0, which means "the item 8 on current form contains a number that is greater than zero" - and evaluates that condition to either true of false. The meaning of a while statement is simple. It tells Macro to execute the statement repeatedly, as long as the while expression evaluates to true. The value of the expression is checked each time at the beginning of the loop, so even if this value changes during the execution of the statement, execution will not stop until the end of the iteration. Sometimes, if the while expression evaluates to false from the very beginning, the statement won't even be run once. FOR MORE INFORMATION ON HOW TO USE WHILE PLEASE SEE THE GUIDE UNDERSTANDING MACRO CONDITIONAL COMMANDS You can use this command together with the if/while commands to evaluate on results from the database by storing the result in a store. Example:
@STORE1 = SQL('SELECT CardType FROM OCRD WHERE CardCode = $[$5.0.0]'); IF (@STORE1 = 'S') BEGIN (statement) END NOTE: CANNOT BE USED AS INPUT TO A MACRO COMMAND ONLY DESIGNED FOR USE WITH THE CONDITIONAL COMMANDS

SQL('SELECT * FROM TABLE'); (Conditional helper command)

LEN('String to count'); (Conditional helper command)

You can use this command to get the length of a string; you can use a STORE or the dynamic syntax as input. NOTE: CANNOT BE USED AS INPUT TO A MACRO COMMAND ONLY DESIGNED FOR
USE WITH THE CONDITIONAL COMMANDS

GETDATE(); (Conditional helper command)

You can use this command to get the current data in yyyy-MM-dd format. Example:

Editor

The Open editor button opens a more advanced editor that has syntax highlighting , undo/redo and extended information about each macro command when clicking on the command. The editor has auto completion that can be activated using Ctrl + SPACE

Debugger Enabling debug mode will attach a debugger when the macro is about to be executed - this can be a valuable tool when trying to figure out why a macro behaves as it does.

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 206/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

The debugger enables you to step through the macro lines and check if they behave as expected. Debug mode should only be enabled when trying to locate bugs or check that the macro behaves as expected.

The debugger shows the macro, a log window and a view of the stores and what they contain at the current time. When the debug window opens it loads the macro and prepare for running it. When the parsing is done you can run the entire macro by pressing the button again or you can step through the macro line by line using the . When stepping trough the macro you can validate that the if/while commands behaves as expected and you can see what each command does in SAP. The button can be used to stop execution of the macro. Line Loop NB: THIS UNIVERSAL FUNCTION IS QUITE COMPLEX AND REQUIRED EXPERT KNOWLEDGE IN USING THE B1 VALIDATION SYSTEM AND UNIVERSAL FUNCTION With the Line Loop Universal Function you are able to work more advanced on line level, by adding line by line validation and executing other Universal Functions with data from each line (Allowing you to manipulate and transfer multiple lines)

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 207/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

You should see Line Loop as a secondary step to a header level event (from a Function button or B1 Validation configuration) that for each line in a matrix is allowed to execute a Universal Function as if the event happened on that line. Furthermore for each line pass you can apply a condition (optional) if you actually wish to react to this line and also for each line collect data that should be reacted to after all lines have been looped. The following high-level Flowchart describes the functionality for better understanding

No Assign new line as the current and apply validation Collect Final result data (If any) Execute line-level Universal Functions (If any)

Samples: - The matrix on a Sales order have an item-uid = 38 so we write that as the item UID

TIP: ALL ITEM-BASED SALES AND PURCHASE DOCUMENTS HAVE 38 IS ITEM-UID AND 39 FOR THE SERVICE-BASED DOCUMENTS The Payment methods matrix on Business Partner Master data have UID = 217 as we can see here in this screenshot

Ignore textlines and

o The ignore last row checkbox is created because SAP Business One always leaves an extra line for new data on sales and purchase documents, and the last row needs to be ignored here (because it does not contain any user-data). Remove only the check if you work with a matrix that does not leave such extra lines (An example is Payment Method Matrix on the BP Master Data shown above). This checkbox determine if you on sales and purchase documents should ignore text-lines and sub-totals (these are by default not supported). On other window types this option is

ignored. This checkbox determine if the main window (and others that might be opened by macros) should be frozen to avoid flickering when executing the line loop. This option allows you to direction of the line loop. Example if you have 5 lines and choose First to last it will go 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 while if you choose Last to First it will go 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. The most common scenario is First to Last, but Last to first especially become handy when you wish to remove lines (If you run First to Last and on the fly removed in the list you loop some items would be skipped). The Line Loop functionality gives you the option to work with all lines in the defined matrix or only the ones that meet certain criteria. If you wish to work with all lines you should choose the No condition option and fill you functionality into the fields below. Data Description First pass UF The First pass Universal Function can define with a Universal Function that should be executed only when the very first line is found (after that it is ignored). The reason for this option is (Optional) created in order to have the following scenario and others:

No condition

You wish to make a transfer of line data from one to another screen. For that you will need two things. First you need to open the new window and send some header data perhaps and secondary you need to send the line-data (for all lines).

Line UF (Optional)

Final result value (Optional)

As you can see we need to open a window, but it only makes sense to open the window once, and that is what the First pass UF is used for. If you read the explanation about the First Pass UF, The line UF gives itself that it now need place all the line-transferring in the Line UF However you can also use Line UF by itself without a First Pass UF (When you just want to manipulate line data on current window) Working on each line is not all about only executing Universal Functions on the line. Line Loop have a built in Final Result system in which you can collect data about the line The collected data can then be used for a final result after all lines have been looped. An example of this could be that you wish to find the total sum of total-price field and if it exceed a certain amount something special should happen. In this field you can use static text or the normal dynamic syntax $[$item.col.type] and the SQL:<sql to select> Furthermore this field can work with a special keyword $[LINNUM] that allows you to refer to the current line-num.

KEYWORD TO DO IT.

Final result type

(see the Final result section for more). Here you can control how the final result value should be applied to the perhaps already existing result. The options are as follows:

Type Append

Description Append simply append text to the previous result Samples: - If you meet the values A, B and C on 3 lines append will result in the result [A] [B] [C] - If you have 2 lines and use the value Error on line $[LINNUM] you will get the result [Error on line 1] [Error on line 2]. With this option the value from this line is only set if the previous result is empty, else it is ignored Samples: - If value A is met and previous value is empty, the new value is set to A - If value A is met but the previous value is already B, the value remains B With this option you always overwrite the previous result. Samples: - If value A is met and the previous value is B, it is overwritten and end with the result A Count simply ignores the final result value (although you need to have a dummy value) and increment the result by one each time it is hit Samples: - If a result is hit 3 times, you get a result of 3

Ignore if previous value exist

Overwrite

Count

Page 211/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

Min

With this option you can among all lines find the minimum value. Samples: - Setting type as Min and the value to $[$38.11.NUMBER] that is the Qty on a document, you will end with a result that is the value of the line with the lowest quantity Max works the same as Min but will instead give you the highest value. With this option you can summarize all columns.

Max Sum

SQL condition

Samples: - Setting type as Sum and the value to $[$38.11.NUMBER] that is the Qty on a document, you will end with a result that is the total value the lines. The Line Loop functionality gives you the option to work with all lines in the defined matrix or only the ones that meet certain criteria. If you wish to work with only certain lines you should use the text-area here to define an SQL that should be executed for the line. Most cases will have an IF/ELSE or a CASE/WHEN Structure that in the end provide no or one result back. This result will then be validated against what line in the below matrix react on this result. TIP: IN ESSENSE, THIS WORK EXACTLY THE SAME AS SQL-CONDITION ON B1 VALIDATION CONFIGURATION,
SO IF YOU A FIMILIAR WITH THAT YOU SHOULD EASILY UNDERSTAND THIS

Sample 1: Here we loop all sales order lines but we only wish to react if the lines has an item-code = Freight

Sample 2: Here we test if a line is an item line ($[$38.1.0] is not empty) and the if the price is zero.

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 212/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

Sample 3: Here we test if the payment methods matrix have its row checked.

The samples here all only have one result but you are allowed to have multiple result-lines if needed. Once the result is found the functionality of that line is executed as described below.

Column Result

Description Here you enter the result value you wish to react to. As an example in sample 1 the result value is the word PRESENT, and this line will only get executed if the SQL result in this value.

NB: SHOULD YOU HAVE TWO LINES THAT HAVE THE SAME RESULT VALUE IT
IS ONLY THE FIRST THAT WILL BE EXECUTED

First pass UF (Optional)

The First pass Universal Function can defined with a Universal Function that should be executed only when the very first line is found (after that it is ignored). The reason for this option is created in order to have the following scenario and others:

Break Loop

that is the Qty on a document, you will end with a result that is the total value the lines. The break loop option allows you to end the check of lines before all lines have been checked. This is handy as an example if you wish to use the Line Loop to test if a specific item or value is present, and as soon as you have validated that it is pointless to test the additional lines. Sample: If you have 20 lines in a sales order and you need to test if a item with item-code = Freight is present to validate if it is OK to add the document. Imagine that the freight item is on line 3 if would be pointless to check the remaining 17 lines (because our requirement is already met). Here it would makes sense to set the Break Loop and gain performance in not needing to check the rest of the lines. NB: EVEN IF YOU BREAK THE LOOP THE FINAL RESULT OPTION WILL STILL BE
EXECUTED

Final Result (Optional)

NB: IF A SQL RESULT IS ONE NOT IN THE RESULT-OPTION THE LINE IS SIMPLY IGNORED AND MOVES TO THE NEXT LINE. Once all lines have been looped or a break loop is met, the Line Loop goes into is final phase of the Final result validation. One or more final result conditions can be executed using the data below.

Column Condition

Description First thing in a final result is if we actually want a final result at all. It can also happen that we only want a final result if our final result value has a specific value, and here you set that condition. You have the following options:

Value Type

Description No Final Result should be executed No matter what the value of the result is, execute the function Execute if Only execute the final result if the result condition is met fits the condition set by the following 3 fields (see below) Execute if not Only execute the final result if the final empty result value have a value. NB: ONLY USE IF CONDITION IS SET TO EXECUTE IF CONDITION IS MET Here you choose if the result should be treated as a string or a number.

Option Do not execute Always execute

Compare type

NB: ONLY USE IF CONDITION IS SET TO EXECUTE IF CONDITION IS MET Here you chose how the result should be compared (Equal is default) NB: ONLY USE IF CONDITION IS SET TO EXECUTE IF CONDITION IS MET Here you set the value to compare against. In this field you can use static text or the normal dynamic syntax $[$item.col.type] and the SQL:<sql to select> If the lines Condition has evaluated that the final result should be executed, it now execute the entered Universal Function. This universal Function can be any of the other types (though some of them do not make that much sense). IMPORTANT: To make the tie complete the other Universal Functions can if they are executed as part of the Final Result use a special keyword containing the result of the lineloop You can use: $[LLRESULT.STRING] o To get the line loop result as string $[LLRESULT.NUMBER] o To get the line loop result as a number

Compare value

Universal Function

Sample: Type the following in a Universal Function of type message to show a message containing the line loop result. If the line loop result was [Line 3] [Line 4] [Line5] you can write The following lines had errors: $[LLRESULT.STRING]. Please correct this and try again. Will result in the message: The following lines had errors: [Line 3] [Line 4] [Line5]. Please correct this and try again. Online samples: Click here to access

Master Data Manager


With the master data manager you are able to perform administration and maintenance tasks on common master data in the current database as a batch. This is done without the need for external tools like Data Transfer Workbench. By default, only super-users have access to the tools but you can grant access to other users by going to the normal SAP Business One Authorizations. Online E-Learning is also available for this module. Click here to watch it Business Partner Master Data Manager / Item Master data Manager NB: THE FOLLOWING ARE EXPLAINED WITH TERMS AND SCREENSHOTS FROM THE BUSINESS PARTNER MASTER DATA MANAGER, BUT THE TWO TOOLS WORKS EXACTLY THE SAME. The Business Partner Master Data Manager is a tool that allows you to modify common data on existing Business Partners in the currently logged in database. The tool is divided into 4 main sections/steps of usage:

1. 2. 3. 4.

Apply conditions and find data Select Business Partners that need to be modified Select values that need to change Apply transactions if needed and execute

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 220/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

Step 1 - Apply conditions and find data The first you need to do is find the Business Partners you want to modify (In step 2 you can get more specific if needed).

If you simply hit the Find-button all business partners will be shown, but if you know some common properties of the business partner you can apply conditions on what business partners are shown when you hit the find button. By default we provide a few basic conditions but if you wish additional conditions you can create them either as a onetime run or save them for future use. The condition system is based on SQL (SELECT OCRD.CardCode, OCRD.CardName FROM OCRD <your condition>) and is best shown with an example: Example 1: Make a condition that only show BPs from USA On the table OCRD there is a country field (Default Bill To country) and in order apply this as a condition we write the following SQL-condition.

If I now hit Find it will only show business partners from the US. To save this condition, simply provide a name for it and press the Save condition button, and it will show up in the saved conditions for future usage.

If you at some point need to update a saved condition, you simply make your changes and press save (if the name is the same the condition will be updated while if you change the name it will save a new version). TIP: IT IS ALSO POSSIBLE TO DO ADVANCED CONDITIONS USING JOINS AND/OR SUB-SELECTS. Step 2 - Select Business Partners that need to be modified Once you have the appropriate condition and hit find, all business partners who meet the condition is shown.

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 221/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

At the top of the list you can see the number of total business partners in your search. However, you do not need to modify every single BP that fit your condition. Simply use the checkbox next to the codes to determine if you wish to include them or not in the modification. Step 3 - Select values that need to change You have now selected the Business Partners you wish to modify and the next step is to decide what data you wish to modify. You have a lot of options here, but they can be divided into 5 types of modifications that will now be explained with a few samples: NB: PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS STEP ONLY SELECTS THE MODIFICATIONS WHILE STEP 4 IS THE ONE EXECUTING THEM. TIP: YOU CAN CHOOSE MORE THAN ONE MODIFICATION TO HAPPEN ON THE SAME TIME IF NEEDED. Modification via a combo box-selection

This is the most common modification. As default all fields that are changed in this way start on the value -- Do not change this field --- which is the indication that no changes will be made. Should you as an example wish to change the customer group on the selected business partners you simply choose the new group that should be applied to all of the partners. (As you might have guessed if some of the business

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 222/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

partners in the current selection are suppliers they will of cause not need a customer group (they need a supplier group and will therefore ignore the selection)). Modification via a checkbox + entered value selection

Some common values cannot simply be chosen from a dropdown list like a customer group. An example here is that if you wish to give all selected Business Partners a certain total discount, it will need you to put in the value. Such modification happens in a field where you enter the value and tick on what you wish to modify to the entered value. (The tick of the checkbox is needed due to the fact that you might in the example wanted to set all Total discounts to 0 and in such a case, only the checkbox could indicated if you wished to set the value to zero or make no change (0 also being the ignore value)). Modification of properties

Modification of the 64 properties works in the same manner as Modifications via combox but with a slightly different interface that provides buttons for quickly marking each property as yes, no or ignore. Modifications of user-defined fields

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 223/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

You also have the option to modify the User-defined fields (UDF). This works in the same way as Modification via checkbox + value. Simply tick on the UDFs you wish to modify and provide a value for them. Special tasks

Last tab in the modification options provides special tasks, like deleting selected business partners. These tasks are executed when the button is pressed and does not involve step 4s execute button (but it does apply the transaction option from step 4). Reset all settings

You have the option to reset all the current selection of settings using this button (You will also be asked if you wish to do it if you press the Find button multiple times). If you selected yes to reset all settings all current selections for modification will revert back to their default state (same as when opened the window). Step 4 - Apply transactions if needed and execute

You have now selected which business partners you wish to modify and what to modify so the final step is to execute the modifications. You do this by pressing the execute button and confirm the batch-run

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 224/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

In this sample we have selected 3 Business partners to change the total discount to 10%. When we press Yes to confirm, the batch-run will begin.

NB: THE EXECUTION SPEED OF THE BATCH-RUN DEPENDS ON HOW MANY BUSINESS PARTNERS THAT NEEDS TO BE MODIFIED, THE NUMBER OF MODIFICATIONS AND THE PERFORMANCE OF YOUR SYSTEM. LARGE BATCHES CAN TAKE MINUTES/HOURS ALL DEPENDING ON THE ABOVE. ALSO PLEASE NOTE THAT IF YOU USE TRANSACTIONS OTHER USERS MIGHT NOT BE ABLE TO USE THE SYSTEM WHILE THE BATCH IS RUNNING. Once complete the update result is shown

Copyright 2012 Boyum IT A/S

Page 225/253

B1 Usability Package Manual

In this case everything went well and the changes was made, but the tool is still bound to the same rules as business one so if you try something that is not legal in the client you will get a negative result. In the following example we try to change the same 3 business partner into becoming suppliers (something that is not possible since all 3 have been used as customers). In such a case we get the following result.

The -10 - Journal entries linked to card error indicating that the update is not possible. As one or more changes can potentially fail (either if they are invalid or a crash happen, you have the option to make all modifications in a transaction ensuring that either all or no modifications are applied. It is not activated as default, but if you wish to use it then simply mark the Use Transactions (Rollback if one or more fails) option). TIP: THE USE TRANSACTIONS (ROLLBACK IF ONE OR MORE FAILS) OPTION ALSO APPLIES TO THE SPECIALS TASKS

Form-Settings Manager NB: THE FOLLOWING TOOL ONLY WORKS FOR SBO2007A SP00 PL49 / SBO2007B SP00 PL12 OR HIGHER DUE TO A BUG IN THE SAP SDK; SEE SAP NOTE 956850 FOR MORE. One of the great features of SAP Business One is that each user can have his/her own style of windows when it comes to columns in line-level structures (Example: what columns to show in an A/R Invoice). This is however difficult to maintain and is the reason for this tool. Please note that as of SBO2007A SP01, SAP is also providing similar functionality (new button in the User-management window; see SAP note 1369613 for more) but we extend their functionality in the following places: Option to apply form-settings to only specific windows instead of all. Option to Import/Export form-settings from one database to another. Use XML as templates for form-settings.

When opening the form-settings manager you will be presented with following window.

Using the tool consists of 3. 1. Select where to copy from 2. Select where to copy to 3. Execute selection Step 1 - Select where to copy from First you need to choose the source of where you wish to get the form-settings. You can either select an xml folder (Exported files from another database) or choose one of the existing users in the currently logged in database. If you choose an existing user you get the option to decide which windows (Form Types) to include and if the the formtypes UDF sidebar should be included as well. Step 2 - Select where to copy to Once the source is selected you need to provide your target, which are either other users in the database (Check the user you wish to have the settings) or to an XML-folder for import into another database (click the button and define a folder for where to save the form-settings). Step 3 Execute selection NB: DUE TO THE NATURE OF HOW SAP SAVES FORM-SETTINGS UPON EXIT OF THE SAP BUSINESS ONE APPLICATION, IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE USERS SELECTED AS TARGET IS LOGGED OUT OF SAP BUSINESS ONE WHILE THE COPY HAPPENS (IF NOT THE CHANGES MIGHT BE DISCARDED) Once the above selections are done you can press Execute and after confirmation of your selection begin to copy the form-settings.

Authorization Manager The Authorization manager is a tool that extends the normal drag and drop authorization assignment in SAP Business One. The extension-points are: Option to apply authorizations to a number of users instead of needing to do multiple drag and drops. Option to Import/Export authorizations from one database to another. Use XML as templates for authorizations.

When opening the authorization manager you will be presented with following window.

Using the tool consists of 3 steps: 1. Select where to copy from 2. Select where to copy to 3. Execute the selection Step 1 - Select where to copy from First you need to choose the source of where you wish to get the authorizations. You can either select an xml file (Exported from another database) or choose one of the existing users in the currently logged in database. If you choose an existing user you get the option to include System Authorizations (standard

authorizations defined by SAP) or/and User Authorizations (custom authorizations provided by users/addons via the Additional Authorization Creator). Step 2 - Select where to copy to Once the source is selected you need to provide your target which is either other users in the database (Check the user you wish to have the authorizations) or to an XML-file for import into another database (click the button and define a filename for where to save the authorization) Step 3 Execute selection Once the above selections are done you can press Execute and after confirmation of your selection begin to copy the authorizations.

In this example we export all authorizations from Doris Labour and copy them to Fred Buyer.

The system will first find all Doris authorizations.

And then apply them to Fred as needed. Once complete you get the confirmation of the copy is complete

NB: DUE TO THE NATURE ON HOW THE SAP SDK READ AND APPLY THE AUTHORIZATIONS THE PROCESS CAN BE RATHER LENGTHLY THE MORE USERS YOU APPLY IT TO.

Localized Modules
This section covers the localized modules of the B1 Usability Package. Localized modules are modules that will only be available in certain SAP Localizations.

Bank-In
NB: THIS IS A LOCALIZED MODULE THAT WILL ONLY RUN ON DANISH LOCALIZATIONS. THE FOLLOWING MANUAL SECTION IS IN DANISH. Bankmodulet gr det muligt at indlse FIK indbetalinger fra de strste banker i Danmark via en fil. Bank-In: Konfiguration Opstning af Bankmodul gres gennem konfigurationsvinduet som startes ved at navigere til Administration >Add-ons> B1 Usability Package > Modul konfiguration > Bankmodul: Konfiguration

Felt Navn (Obligatorisk) Fil

Beskrivelse Her angives konfigurationsnavnet (op til 8 tegn) Her angives stien til det sted hvor bank-filen normalt er placeret. I enkeltbruger-systemer er denne en lokal sti (C:\...), men hvis der er flere brugere af indlsningmodulet anbefales det er at filen placeres i en delt mappe (\\Server\...) Her angives der hvor p en fik-linie i filen at kundens nummer starter. Alt afhngig af filtypen varierer dette. Se nedenstende eksempel. Alternativ kan du indstte -1 for at indikerer at kundenummer ikke er en del af FIK-koden (Hvis der bruges alfanumeriske tegn i kundekoder) [Se venligst advarsel om brug af alfanumeriske koder nederst] Her angives lngden p kundenumre. De fleste har en fast lngde p kundenumre (typisk 8 = telefonnummer), men modulet kan ogs tage variable lngde kundenumre. F.eks. hvis man har flgende kundenumre

Forretningspart ner: Position

Alternativ kan du indstte -1 for at indikerer at kundenummer ikke er en del af FIKkoden (Hvis der bruges alfanumeriske tegn i kundekoder) ADVARSEL OMKRING ALFANUMERISKE KUNDENUMRE: UNDERSTTTELSE AF KUNDER MED ALFANUMERISKE KUNDENUMRE KRVER VERSION 2.410 ELLER HJERE. DENNE LSNING GIVER EN HVIS
USIKKERHED IDET DER KUN KAN VALIDERES P FAKTURANUMMER OG IKKE SOM NORMALT P BDE FAKTURA OG KUNDENUMMER. DERFOR VIL DER POTENTIELT KUNNE LAVES EN FORKERT INDBETALING HVIS FLGENDE (SJLDNE) SCENARIO OPSTR: EN KUNDE KOMMER TIL AT INDTASTE ET FORKERT FAKTURANUMMER UNDER BETALING I DERES BANK OG DET FORKERT INDTASTEDE FAKTURANUMMER HAR NJAGTIG SAMME BELB SOM DET FAKTURANUMMER DER SKULLE VRE INDTASTET

Faktura: Position Faktura: Lngde Konto Filtype

Her angives der hvor p en fik-linie i filen at fakturaens nummer starter. Alt afhngig af filtypen varierer dette. Se nedenstende eksempel. Her angives hvor langt et fakturanummer er. Se nedenstende eksempel. Her angives hvilken konto der bruges til indbetalingerne Her vlges hvilken filtype der bruges. Pt. understttes flgende: Format Banker EDI 4 - Nordea (Unitel) (PBS) - Jydske Bank - Sparekassen Himmerland - Sydbank - Med flere (Det mest gngse format) Danske Danske Bank Bank CSV Danske Danske Bank Bank XML Plus Plus Girot (Svensk bank-format) Girot NB: DETTE FORMAT ARBEJDER NORMALT IKKE MED FORRETNINGSPARTNER I REFERENCEN, S "FORRETNINGSPARTNER, POSITION" SKAL ST TIL -1 DA DET INDIKERER AT FP-KODE
IKKE ER I BETALINGSREFERENCEN

Eksempel p filer Flgende viser eksempler p identifikation af data i filer. Hver konfiguration er dog forskellig da der findes forskellige lngde kundenumre og fakturanumre. Hvis kundenummer ikke inkluderes i FIK-koden pga. at de er alfanumeriske, vil der vre

Journal Dette felt udfyldes automatisk p linjer der er oprettet som automatisk ved tilfjelse. Her er det muligt at angive en kommentar knyttet til indlsningen. Nr der trykkes p denne knap hentes der data fra valgte konfigurations fil. Under indlsning sker der ogs frste validering af data og linjer der vil kunne hndteres automatisk bliver markeret som auto. Linjer hvor data mangler eller er forkerte vil ikke markeres som auto. Disse kan s rettes til p skrmen og genvalideres eller hndteres manuelt (Dobbeltklik p linje-header og st hak i manuelt checkboxen for linjen) Hvis der allerede er en indlsning sprges der om denne skal overskrives NB: Hvis du oplever at en kunde kommer til at indbetale en faktura to gange vil du opleve at begge linjer markeres som Automatisk. Der vil s under tilfjelse ske en fejl da en faktura ikke kan betales to gange. Mden man lser dette er ved at fjerne fakturanummeret p en ene af de to linjer og tryk p valider (Dette vil resultere i at linjen hvor du fjernede fakturanummeret vil skifte fra automatisk til manuelt) Denne knap genvaliderer indlste data og kommer med guidelines for hvad der kan vre galt. Ved tilfjelse bliver der spurgt om man er sikker p om man vil tilfje indlsningen (Hndterer de linjer der er markeret som auto). Der laves en sidste validering og tjekkes om alle linjer er hndteret (Alle linjer skal enten have et hak i auto eller manuelt, ellers fr man ikke lov til at gennemfrer indbetalingen). Hvis alt er OK gennemfres automatiske betalinger og linjer opdateres med referencer til Bank og Journal opdateres. Skulle der mod forventning ske en fejl under den automatiske indbetaling krer det hele i en transaktion og alt vil f lavet en rollback.

Efter betalingsforslaget er dannet har man mulighed for at ndre i bogfringsdato, forfaldsdato, bilagsdato, betalingsreference og betalingsbelbet for den endelige udbetaling.

Kan rettes Ja Nej Nej Nej Ja Ja Ja Ja Ja Ja Nej Ja Nej Nej

Disse betalingsforslag vil have valgt at lave bogfringsdato p den indgende fakturas forfaldsdato. Desuden vil betalingsbelbet vise det benstende belb. Dvs. at hvis der i forvejen er blevet lavet en udbetaling for en given faktura p mindre end det fulde fakturabelb, s vil den kun forsl at betale det benstende belb. Selekter i kolonnen lav betaling hvilke betalinger som skal gennemfres og klik p valider knappen for at fjerne og lave validering p de valgte betalinger. Klik p tilfj knappen for at tilfje de valgte betalinger til SAP B1 og at udskrive en fil som indeholder betalingerne til den placering som er angivet i konfigurationen. Efter udlsningen er blevet tilfjet til systemet kan man browse tilbage til den (se nedenstende billede) og se at der nu er kommet reference numre p (Ref. betaling og ref. journal). Dette er referencer til henholdsvis den udgende betaling og journalposteringen som ligger bag den udgende betaling.

Man vil ogs have mulighed for at lave en genudlsning af de tilfjet betalinger ved at klikke p genudls til fil. Samlet belb ved overfrsel til udlandet: Med denne feature kan flere betalinger til samme kunde p samme forfaldsdato samles i en betaling-linje i banken. NB: Dette virker kun for overfrsler til udlandet og kan kun bruges sammen med flgende banker: - Danske Bank - Handelsbanken - Sydbank - Portalbank Hvis muligheden aktiveres for banker der ikke er nvnt ovenfor eller hvis indlanske banker udlses ignoreres dette. Betalingssprring: P alle indgende faktura under fanebladet Finansregnskab har man mulighed for at vlge at sprre fakturaen. Dette vil sige at den ikke vil blive vist i betalingsforslaget og der vil ikke kunne dannes en betaling af den.
