Infor LN / Baan Tip of the Week: Deleting Records

To improve performance and reduce database growth, deleting records is highly effective. The disadvantage of deleting records is that data is no longer available. Usually, however, not all records need to be saved. For example, line activities are stored by warehouse. Normally, you do not need to keep these records. Therefore, after closing a warehouse order, line activities can be removed. The User's Guide for ERP LN Archiving describes several sessions you can use to delete old data. Other data such as items and business partners can be reviewed once in a while, after which you can delete the data you no longer need. For every order and contract table a session is available to archive and delete old orders. In these sessions, you can specify several characteristics to select the orders to be removed, such as date or status. Run these sessions on a regular basis.

Baan / LN tip of the Week: approving a new tax code

Prior to approving a new tax code, the system displays a message, “An approved tax code cannot be changed anymore. Continue?” This is concerning to end users if they take the message literally. The user can answer “Yes” to the question as it refers to the tax details, not the rates or ledger accounts. A user can always change the tax rate and ledger accounts after it has been approved. All taxing authorities change rates periodically, so it is logical that these could be updated as needed.

Baan / LN Tip: Pro Forma

Pro Forma invoices can be issued based on order or delivery. If you choose delivery, the pro forma can be linked to the final sales invoice through the sub-session “Related Invoices.”  However, this requires the sales order step “Release to Sales Order/Schedules to Invoicing” to be a manual step. If it is automated, the order will be sent to Invoicing 360 directly and the link to the final invoice will not be made.

Baan/LN Tip: Saving Space in Your General Ledger

Compressing Integration Transactions

One way to save space in your general ledger is to compress integration transactions. The transactions are combined into one ledger account number. However, the detail is still available in the integration transactions sessions.

The compression is seen after the transactions are finalized. 

Compression is established in the mapping scheme by checking the box under the columns “Compression of Debit/Credit Transactions". This can only be done in a mapping scheme that is not activated.

Baan/LN Tip: Credit Control Parameters (ACR Parameters)

In the Credit Control Parameters, you can indicate if the same letter will be sent for reminding and action taken if amounts are zero or negative. The reminder letters work in conjunction with overdue sales invoices and the “Reminder Diary Margin.” When an invoice has passed its due date plus a certain margin of days, LN generates a reminder advice for the invoice.
