    Hello everybody,

    Can you please let me know where can I get PDF or any document with short details of all forms of Lawson, I can see them in Lawson Guru repository, but they are separate pages, need all of them in one so that it will be easy to print and use, thanks in advance.

    Sushil..

    Just go to the Knowledge Base and search for "Technical Text." Then click the "File Layouts" tab. You can either include the form you are looking for in the search of browse through the list.

    Here is the syntax for the dmptitle utility:
    Usage: To Dump Titles To a Flat file
    Syntax: dmptitle [-l Language [-t]] ProductLine SystemCode dumpfile
    -l Dump Titles in this Language.
    -t Dump non-translated Titles for this Language
    OR
    Syntax: dmptitle -m [-l Language [-t]] ProductLine dumpfile
    -l Dump Titles in this Language.
    -t Dump non-translated Titles for this Language
    -m Dump menu and menu options

    (Example: dmptitle prod802 if if.dmp)

    2. You can also create a csv file of program names and descriptions. To create this file, enter the following command at a command prompt:

    rngdbdump -c gen PROGRAM -f programcode programname > <filename>.csv

    To obtain a csv listing of all tokens, use the following command:
    rngdbdump -c gen TITLE -f Token Title > <filename>.csv


    The following syntax will give you a list of the programs and program name by productline. Use
    the syntax exactly as shown with no substitutions except YOUR-PRODUCTLINE-NAME.

    rngdbdump gen program -f productline programcode programname -v productline='YOUR-PRODUCTLINE-NAME' | lashow

    You can send the lashow output to a file OR instead of '| lashow', use '> file.out' to send the
    output directly to a file.

    If you want the output in a csv format to pull into a spreadsheet, use the rngdbdump -c option.

    Is there a separate different command prompt to generate a spreadsheet listing the complete Form Help Details? I have used this command in LID,
    rngdbdump –c gen doctxt -v productline=”PROD” > doctxt.csv

    unfortunately, when opening the csv file, the Form Detail Description is not what I was looking form. I was hoping to see the various tokens with the description of what the token or form does so that I can mash it with the report I have of the Program Names and Description when I ran
    rngdbdump –c gen program -f systemcode programcode programname -v productline=”productline name” > program.csv

    I'm just looking for a simple report / spreadsheet that would have 3 columns: Form ID (Token), Form Name and Form/Report Description.
    Ex.
    AM200 - System Set up Listings - Lists set up information
    AM205 - Company Set up Listings - Set up information for a company or company group
    etc.

    Thank you.

    @wilcoxmad post did help but the output is really hard to read when I opened the csv file.  the form description is split between multiple cell rows and i have to concatenate them.  i have to manipulate the data because what I really am looking is the Form ID and Form Description not the Form Table..  I found another command from a different forum "dumphelp" but I got a security violation error.  Thank you.

    rngdbdump –c gen doctxt -v productline=”PROD” > doctxt.cs


    PROD is our productline name

    Lately (with the past version or 2), the only place I've been able to find that help is within the apps_help.jar file that they want you to install now or similar help files that go with every app/module.

    OR... are you looking for something similar to what userdoc productline program_code produces?

    Hi,  it's the form help files that goes with every token/form for each module that I'm looking for.  I'll try to see if my admin can access the 'apps_help.jar file'.  Thank you.
