How to look up field name from field number.    

Started By  Janice
I'm looking for the table (if one exists) that I can use to look up the field name by the field number of the Personnel Action.  I know table DBHRPAD (PADICT) contains the field number and item name which is the description of the field, but it doesn't have the actual name of the field.  For example, if I look up field number 2 in DBHRPAD, the item name is 'Name - Last'.  But I need the actual name of the field 'DEMPLSTNM', not the description of the field. Is there a table that exists where...

SharePoint integration 9.0.x    

Started By  skhenry
I am trying to determine the feasibility for building an self-service portal on Lawson v 9.0.x atop SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint Online. I am not familiar with what web services are available, but need to know whether data can be written by Web Service or directly to DB in Lawson. Our high-level solution design is to allow end-users to modify certain fields via the user profile within SharePoint and those edits would be written back to Lawson.  So, has anyone done this and is it possible for L...

HR11 AGS call    

Started By  JimK
Hi, We have a framework written in .NET (C) that we've used in the past for adding and updating Lawson billing info.  The framework has allowed us to execute Transaction (AGS) and Data (DME) calls, and has worked very well. We now look to take a new hire feed from our Talent Management system, and automatically create HR11 records within Lawson. The HR11 AGS call is posing difficulties, though.  It appears that after we make the HR11 call, to form is expecting us to add tax deductions via th...

Changing a custom index to Key Change=Yes?    

Started By  Woozy
Hi All, We are on LSF  Sometime in the past, we created a custom index on HRHISTORY (HRHSET99) that has 'Key Change = No'.  We recently identified an error with a delivered program that was attempting update HRHISTORY and found that the error was because it is trying to change a field that is included in our custom index. Since the index is only used by one program, and is only used for query (not update), can I just change the index to 'Key Change = Yes' and then recompile the progr...

Pop-up Text Message in AP20.1    

Started By  maalimsimo
We have custom javascript code in the AP20.1, AP20.2 and AP20.6 forms that alerts the user to ensure that the HOLD_CODE and REMIT_CODE are keyed in for certain AP Companies. This part works well, but somehow the code introduced yet another pop-up window that is not desired and it is unnecessarily increasing key-strokes for the users. It simply says has the text 'EXP', and the 'OK' button. It is not an error message and does not stop the process, but pops up whenever the ADD or CHANGE function is...

4GL Versus HTML/JAVA    

Started By  Eric Haugen
Standard Lawson 4GL/COBOL Portal transactions programs can be Add-Ins driven. This is a very powerful tool to be used for mass data update. If someone develops an HTML/JAVA Portal transaction, is there any tool that can be used to mimic Add-Ins for that transaction Such that it could be used for mass updating I would think that fully conversational program interaction would be an issue, but beyond that Are there any other considerations when there is a choice of using Lawson 4GL/COBOL or HTML...

How to determine if string is numeric?    

Started By  Woozy
Hi All, It seems like I've done this before, but I can't remember how to do it.  I have a string field that may or may not be numeric.  How do I determine if it is numeric so I can redefine it and output the numeric value  When I try just redefining the string as numeric in the WS, it returns the numeric as empty and throws the 'Illegal character in numeric field' error when I try to reference it. Thanks!  Kelly
