    Hello everyone! 

    I am completely new to Lawson/Infor and have been asked by my employer to create a state tax form. I am pretty well versed in HTML, JavaScript, jQuery. After opening the W4,html file and looking at the use of frames and the functions within, I am very lost.

    Does anyone have any design guide or any information on creation of new forms with a dictionary of functions? Any experience modifying the W4 into a state form? I could even entertain paid consulting work for this project.

    Thanks in advance for any help you can offer!

    Michael

    It is confusing! I have spent a ton of hours to understand what they are trying to do on that w4.htm page. I don't know of any good guides for modifying EMSS at all. I just completed creating an A4 form for Arizona state withholding. AZ has an additional formula number that needs to be passed to/from the form. Is there a specific state you need to do? What version of EMSS are you using?

    Jeff,

    I am unsure, I am just a web guy that builds physician orders for McKesson and they thought I could take this beast on. I am making a custom HTML file for it, and am having some success. It is a convoluted way of doing web pages, using the old frames within frames, within frames and lots of javascript.

    Well, welcome to the Lawson world! Building a custom HTML is a good way to start. Lawson likes to dynamically build the html through the javascript. Once you have a page done the way you like it, you can slide it right in to the w4.htm where the render state form function is. Since I had to have one form for one state, and use standard Lawson screens for other states, I tested for the deduction code to decide which form to render. You will want to end up with the w4.htm page because it already has the code to pull the employee data, and update that person's deduction when they are done. And that code is truly convoluted, and not something you would want to try on your own.
