Joe,

One of the Infor developers did a great presentation about user exits a couple of years ago. Take a look at this http://www.xaeigroup.com/does-anyone-have-ali-s-presentation-from-the-last-user-group-t17.html. You will need to register in order to download the power point presentation.

It's been a long time since I've worked on release 6, so I'll let someone who is more current on that release may correct me on some details if they've changed from 6 to 7. I believe you are referring to an integrated file when you say user extension. In the scenario you described I don't believe you would need a user extension.

Instead, you probably want to define a custom logic edit on the edits tab of the business object. Make note of the edit ID assigned during this process.

Next generate the edit buffer user exit. That program name should end in N0R as described by Phil.

Find the generated source and search for the edit id. You should see a section for user code when performing this search. This is where you would add your logic.

Any data, file, subroutine or other modifications you may need to make have their own user protected sections you can modify in the source.

Hope this helps,

Josh

Subject: Re: [MAPICS-L] Browser User Exit

- Release 6

- Im trying to edit an item that is structure to a BOM. A warning or error message will be displayed.
Mapics Browser -> Engineering-> Bills of Material
Ex. If the user tries to create a Component Item to a Paraent Item I want to display a msg
based on the Component Item Revision that was entered.

- The user exits that I activated and will modify are UMDMBD0R and UMDMBD1R
Integrator-> Business Objects -> Bill of Material -> User Exits

My question is what exactly is the extension file? Is it a method in which to feed input into the user exit programs?

Another question that just came to mind is:
When I create the extension files what field names do I use???

In the above example i need to check the Component Item Revision.
I understand I need this field attribute and length defined in the extension file but what about the field name? does it have to match against anothe file???

thanks
JoeM

I would like to be able to help, but can't say I understand the question.
Can you describe at a high level what it is you are trying to achieve and
maybe I can help a little more.

Subject: [MAPICS-L] Browser User Exit


Im making my first attempt to work with User Exit on the browser. I need
someone to correct me if I am thinking wrong and maybe throw in some
pointer.



The part that is confusing is the extension file. Im not exactly sure what
this is.

Im suspecting its more like a parameter file. A method in which to get the

input data to the User Exit program so that it can be worked on i.e.
compared,

checked, edit. I understand I need to modify at least two programs. One
that actual populates the extension/parameter file and the other to read
it and do some processing and return a result.

.is this correct????



In the mean time I have identified the User Exit shell programs, located
the source on the i5 and Activated both User Exit programs from the
Business Object browser.



My next step is to create two files one with keys the other with out.

The fields in the files are the fields I want to look at and process.
Basically I am

creating somewhat of a generic parameter list.

.is that correct?????



Thanks!

JM
