JD Edwards Developer Tip – How to Join Work Orders and Sales Orders http://alanvannice.com/2008/05/jd-edwards-developer-tip-how-to-joinwork-orders-sales-orders/ Fri, 16 May 2008 16:45:35 +0000 http://alanvannice.com/?p=96 Have you ever tried to join Work Orders & Sales Orders?  Well the problem is that the key to the F4211 – Sales Order Table is “DOCO” and it is Numeric.  But, the “RORN” Related Work Order Number on the on the F4801 – Work Order Table, which is actually the Sales Order, is Alpha.

This should be as simple as joining the F4211 DOCO to the F4801 RORN – Right?  Wrong! The RORN is Alpha and the DOCO is numeric, so here is a work around that will work in some instances.

You cannot join the two files, but in a report you can use System Function Data Selection to make them display correctly. In other words if you have a Processing Option with Work Order available for Prompting; you can write a report that will show the Work Order selected by the user and all the corresponding Sales Orders.

You would do it by using two canned Business Functions and a System Function for Data Selection as follows:

1. Create two Groups Sections on your Report; one using a Business View over the F4801 and one using a Business View built over the F4211. When you finished it should look something like this:

Now you need go to the Event Rules for the F4801 Group Section and complete a few steps:

1. Create a Variable that is a numeric representation of the F4801_RORN. I called mine F4801_RORN_mn.

2. Then call a Business Function that Strips the extra Hex’s and Blanks in the Alpha field of RORN, like so.

3. Then call another Business Function that Converts the RORN to a Numeric and adds the numeric value to your newly created RORN_Numeric, like so:

The next step is to save your Event Rules and then go to the Event Rules of the F4211 Groups Section. In the Initialize edit point you need to set the Data Selection by calling the Set User Selection System function. It should look like this:

Basically, your F4211_BC_DOCO should equal your VA_F4801_RORN_Mn. That should do it. Save the report and run it.

A quick note: If you don’t strip the Hex’s and Blanks the Data Selection will not work.

The Perfect Cup of Starbucks Coffee http://alanvannice.com/2008/05/the-perfect-cup-of-starbucks-coffee/ Fri, 02 May 2008 15:27:36 +0000 http://alanvannice.com/?p=93     Okay, everyday for as long as I can remember I begin my morning with a Venti (I think that’s how you spell it – it means large) coffee at starbucks. Once upon a time I actually brewed my own coffee in the mornings, but I could never get the same taste that Starbucks gets. Even when I bought Starbucks coffee at the grocery store, I could never quite get that Starbucks flavor.

About a month ago I purchased a small five cup coffee pot, and I remember when I bought it thinking that my cheapo coffee pot would never give me the same taste as one of those expensive coffee pots that are sold by Starbucks, but me being the cheapskate that I am, I could not see spending eighty dollars on a coffee pot. So I bought a cheapo coffee maker for eighteen dollars.

I have been brewing my own coffee again for about a month, and I have been buying Starbucks coffee in the grocery store. And, again it has not tasted quite like it does when I buy it at a Starbuks. Well, this morning, I got it!

So the trick is this… I bought the Sumatra Blend at the Grocery store, and for my five cup coffee pot I added 7 table spoons of ground coffee. Then I added Coffee Mate Creamer (The Liquid Kind). And presto – it is just like Starbucks. I think it is all about getting the correct number of tablespoons.

So if you try this and you don’t think it tastes right, play with the number of tablespoons you add to your brew.
