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):




Organization Type

Each organization belongs to an organization type defined in the system



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
