9.1 Master file Deletion Checking

February 17, 2012 in Release 9.1

Over the years one issue Online users have talked about is not knowing when they can remove a master file entry in one of the support definitions (e.g. Trading Terms, Reps, Buyers, Customer Categories). So we looked at what could be done to make this easier.

The main focus was preventing the deletion of an entry that was still in use. We were able to come up with changes to all the main master file setup functions that now prevent this situation. These changes mean that Online will check a given entry that a user is attempting to delete, and first check other files for references to this entry to ensure it is not in use.

For example, when attempting to delete an Asset Location, the system will check to see if any Assets are tagged with that location. When attempting to delete a Shipping Port in Purchasing, the system will check for Shipments that are tagged with that port etc.

Wow! Thank you! I continually needed to write on my site something like that. Can I include a portion of your post to my site?
