I am trying to write a query that will return APINVOICE, APDISTRIB, APVENMAST, and APPAYMENT information. Basically the user wants the Paid invoice detail information including vendor name and check number & date. I created the following query but it doesn't seem to completely work the way I would like it to do. It pulls the same invoice & distrib twice for each combination. In other words, if there is a single invoice with 2 distribution records, instead of the query returning 2 r...

Web service calls *FROM* Lawson    

Started By  MBond
How would one call a web service on another machine FROM lawson  The call would need to be made in the background without opening a new window.   The web service can accept either a POST or GET request.  For this request, the response is not processed but future request probably would need to process the response. I think the xmlhttp request is the answer but have no documentation on it's use. I've seen a lot of posts on calling into Lawson web services from external applications but nothing g...

Add columns to report csv beyond the print report width limit    

Started By  Woozy
Hi Everyone, I have a 4GL custom program that includes a work file with lots of fields.  I want to create a secondary report for the job based on the work file (so it shows in Print Manager), but there are more columns than will fit on the print report. I really would prefer to include only a couple of rows on the print report, but have all the columns show on the csv version of the report. I've tried adding additional fields to the report group $FIELDS section without including them in the $F...

Missing data in modified CSV error report after promotion    

Started By  Woozy
Hi Gurus - I'm stumped, and I need some ideas. We have a custom batch program that includes an error report.  I recently modified the program and the error report to add additional columns.  With the new columns, the report is too wide for the printed report but works fine in the CSV export in DEV. However, after promoting the changes to PROD, the report compiles and runs without errors in PROD, but some of the new columns are blank in the CSV including the error message column (from msgmnt). ...

Cannot replace my own custom form    

Started By  mikeP
Working on my first update form in PGMDEF and have run into a number of issues.  Currently, I can’t seem to get rid of the previous version of my form. Ideally it will have multiple PRDISTRIB records and allow just the account field to be updated.  At this point, it’s just and “online inquiry” that shows a few fields from the file. The problem is that I created a new version but Lawson won’t display it. Here’s the sequence: Create form in PGMDEF.  Run type is Prototyped and 4GL Quick painte...

Input date validation    

Started By  Chesca
We have a custom batch program that validates input date from a csv file. The date is never formatted properly and sometimes could be mddyy, mmddyy, or mmdyy. We want the date to be reformatted as mmddyyyy.  If the input date is 8 digits and mmddyyyy. then continue processing. Otherwise, check if the date length and fix it. Is there a Lawson API I can use to reformat the input date to be mmddyyyy

Extract File Issues

The logic writes the records to an intermediate sequential file and then at the end of the job it is reformatted by a cnvexp -f  filename  250  command to append the CR/LF characters a...

0 instead of blanks in CSV file    

Started By  pgallucci12
When a 4GL program creates a CSV file, and numeric fields defined in that CSV contain ZERO values, BLANKS are substituted. Is there a way to force a ZERO instead Is there a setting in a configuration file that can do that Example: CSV file contains 2 fields, NAME and COUNT. The value in NAME = 'J.Jones' The value in COUNT = 0 Currently the CSV record for the above looks like... 'J.Jones', I need it to look like... 'J.Jones',0

Best practice of copying a program    

Started By  Vijay S
Dear All, I have to copy a standard program having around 10 workfiles. We all know that Lawson doesn't change the name of workfile and WS-Field ID in work file definition while copying , It changes the same in PD (like wherever I am using WH130, it will change it to ZZ130 in PD/WS, The workfile name starting from WH130 doesn't change). It seems like I have to manually go into PD and change the name of all the Workfiles and other field. I had done it earlier also where there were like couple of...
