I believe that they come over OK if the views and such are based on Item Revision, but they are not migrated if you use Item. Infor wants us to quit using Item Master and use Item Revision for all the PowerLink work. Check out KB 1043095 for full detail, but here's a summary:
Views migrated to R9 that contained attributes from Item Master will be dropped if EPDM is installed
In R9, views over Item Warehouse cannot include attributes from the Item Master, even though they have a many-to-one relationship.
This is because of full EPDM enablment (R9). Even though item is considered part of the query scope in R9 (because of the many-to-1 relationship) the availability of the item master attributes is conditioned to be available only when PDM+ is installed. And in R9, when EPDM is installed, PDM+ is assumed to not be installed ... per the Application window. Views migrated from a previous release will not contain the item master attributes.
Users will need to update their views to contain the equivalent attributes from the Item Revision file. The views should then use the data from the current item revision.
If you are planning an R9.1 upgrade, I would strongly recommend going through all your custom stuff and change any use of Item to use Item Revision prior to doing the upgrade.

The PowerLink views for Item revision and Item Balance did not migrate.
I find the Item master file was dropped from any relationship BUT the
file is still listed in the
I can understand, maybe, the dropping of the relationship with the item
rev. BUT, the item balance, (warehouse), record's relationship with the
item rev is by item. We have multiple sites
with the same item numbers. The items are manufactured in one location
only. I see lots of problems if the warehouse records display item rev
Any comments? Also, has anyone else find missing views, subset or
sorts after migrating to Release 9?
I also know the price book offline loads will not work anymore, that's
a BIG OUCH for me.
