Other Info

Check constraints

These are the check constraints for this table:



These are the indexes for this table (for each index there is a list of all the columns included within it):




Process Plan

Indicates a process plan.



Foreign key column to AD_Client table, (column: AD_Client_ID)



Foreign key column to AD_Org table, (column: AD_Org_ID)



There are two methods of making records unavailable in the system: One is to delete the record, the other is to de-activate the record. A de-activated record is not available for selection, but available for reporting. There are two reasons for de-activating and not deleting records:
(1) The system requires the record for auditing purposes.
(2) The record is referenced by other records. E.g., you cannot delete a Business Partner, if there are existing invoices for it. By de-activating the Business Partner you prevent it from being used in future transactions.


Creation Date

The Created field indicates the date that this record was created.


Created By

Foreign key column to AD_User table, (column: AD_User_ID)



The Updated field indicates the date that this record was updated.


Updated By

Foreign key column to AD_User table, (column: AD_User_ID)


Search Key

A search key allows for a fast method of finding a particular record. If you leave the search key empty, the system automatically creates a numeric number originating from a document sequence defined in the "Document Sequence" window. The sequence naming convention follows a rule "DocumentNo_TableName", where TableName is the actual name of the database table (e.g. C_Order).

Usually, company's internal identifiers for various records (products, customers, etc) are stored here.



A more descriptive identifier (that does need to be unique) of a record/document that is used as a default search option along with the search key (that is unique and mostly shorter). It is up to 60 characters in length.



A description is limited to 255 characters.


Include Phases when inserting

Indicates if the work requirement phases will be generated automatically.


Process Unit

The name of the main final product obtained by executing a process plan.


Conversion Rate

Defines how many final products each run of a process plan produces. See the following formula to understand the relation between the three elements:

Process Quantity = Quantity x Conversion Rate


Copy Version

A process that copies a selected reference version a new one and changing the corresponding time periods at the same time.
