Conversion of SiM Tasks for WFi Workflows

This enhancement simplifies access to LX programs that are available through System i Manager (SiM), as well as Workflow for System I (WFi). This provides an easy way to promote common WFi business processes from one LX environment (for example, test or environment) to another LX environment (for example, production). 

LX also provides a set of four-character task codes that can be used within SiM, System i Workspace (SiW), and WFi, for default programs in LX. These predefined LX task codes begin with 0,1,2,3, or 4. Users can specify task codes for their custom programs that are flagged as valid menu options in LX, but these task codes cannot begin with 0,1,2,3, or 4. Users can specify the task codes in Infor LX Object Master Maintenance, SYS625D. This enhancement provides simplified access to LX programs that are flagged as valid menu options in System i Manager and Workflow for System i environments. In SYS625D, The user can also specify task codes in SYS625D for customized programs that are flagged as valid menu options.

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.

BPCS/LX Tip: Backup and Save options

Users are no longer limited to backing up or saving files to a tape or diskette.They can now use a Save File (SAVF) to save data and objects. LX programs that perform saves and/or backups were modernized to add a new SAVF option.  

There were numerous places in LX where users are prompted to save a file or library. These screens have options for tape or diskette. Diskette refers to the old 8” diskettes used on System/38. These devices are outdated and virtually obsolete. The current means of saving objects on the IBM i, is through the use of a Save File (SAVF). This compresses the data into a single object that can be saved and is easily transferred between systems.

These objects were modified and/or created for this enhancement:

  • Backup Simulation (FOR630C, FOR630D, FOR630FM, FOR640HT, and FOR630HT)
  • Month End Close (INV903D, INV903FM, INV901C, and INV903HT)
  • Purge YTH/Restore Archived Lots (INV912C, INV912D, INV912DHT, and INV912FM)
  • Purge and Save ITH records (INV932C, INV932D, INV932FM, and INV932HT)
  • Labor Ticket Save (SFC905D, SFC905FM, SFC901C, and SFC905HT)
  • Backup Infor LX Files (SYS700C, SYS700D, SYS700FM, and SYS700HT)
  • Backup Infor LX Programs (SYS710C, SYS710D, SYS710FM, and SYS710HT)
  • Backup Infor LX Source (SYS740C, SYS740D, SYS740FM, and SYS740HT)
  • Save File Name Selection (SYS912D, SYS912FM, and SYS912HT)


Benefit

Use the Backup Simulation to copy a simulation file to a SAVF or tape. Users may want to do this to transfer simulation data from one system to another, from site to site, or to save the data before permanently deleting it from the system.

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.
