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):




Export allowed

This data set can be exported. There are datasets which are not meant to be exported, such as the AD dataset (which contains the set of tables which define the Application Dictionary), or the Client dataset. If the dataset needs to be exported via the Export Dataset functionality, this check should be marked. If it's going to be used for another purpose, and its data content doesn't need to be included inside the modules, then it should be unchecked.



Indicates the dataset the element forms part of.



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)

Validation Rule AD_Org Security validation: Organizations of the Client with user acces rights. With the following code:

(@AD_Client_ID@='0' AND AD_Org.AD_Org_ID='0') OR (@AD_Client_ID@!='0' AND ((AD_Org.AD_Client_ID IN (@#User_Client@) AND AD_Org.AD_Org_ID IN (@#User_Org@)) OR AD_Org.AD_Org_ID='0' AND AD_Org.IsSummary='N'))



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)

Reference Table AD_User



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


Updated By

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

Reference Table AD_User


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.



Foreign key column to AD_Module table, (column: AD_Module_ID)

Validation Rule Ad_Module_ID IsInDevelopment: AD_Module_ID IsInDevelopment. With the following code:

IsInDevelopment = 'Y' AND type != 'T'



Export Reference Data to a XML file


Data Access Level

Indicates what type of data (in terms of AD_CLIENT and AD_ORG data columns) can be entered or viewed. We can classify data in 4 major categories:
- System (AD_CLIENT_ID=0, AD_ORG_ID=0) - system data (such as metadata for window, tab and field definition)
- Organization (AD_CLIENT<>0, AD_ORG_ID<>0) - data particular to an organization (such as sales orders)
- Client/Organization (AD_CLIENT<>0, AD_ORG_ID=anything) - data particular to an organization or shared among all organizations within one client
- Client (AD_CLIENT<>0, AD_ORG_ID=0) - data that is specific to a client but can be used by all organizations within that client

or All (AD_CLIENT=anything, AD_ORG_ID=anything)

Validation Rule AD_DataSet access level: null. With the following code:


List values: AD_Table Access Levels

The allowed values for this list are:



The checksum information is used to verify whether the version of the dataset which was imported in the database is up to date, or needs to be updated.
