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):




List Reference

The Reference List field indicates a list of reference values from a database tables. Reference lists populate drop down list boxes in data entry screens



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

Validation Rule AD_Client Security validation: Clients with user access rights. With the following code:

AD_Client.AD_Client_ID IN (@#User_Client@)



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

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.

IsInDevelopment = 'Y' AND type != 'T'

-If some of the elements have it and some not, the ones having it will appear at the beginning of the list sorted by Sequence Number, the rest of them will be shown at the end ordered alphabetically.
