Finance: Propagating Unused Sub-Accounts

You can use this procedure to find accounts that have a valid sub-accounts group but no corresponding general ledger chart account records. This action creates the general ledger chart account record for the account and sub-account combination. This action does not add the accounts to charts.

  2. Open the finance enterprise group and click the Sub Account tab.
  3. Select Actions > Propagate Unused Sub Accounts.

Operations: Best Practices for Purchase Order Archiving / Deleting

Here are some best practices to follow if you are considering archiving or deleting purchase order data:

  • If Financials is implemented, we recommend that you do not delete order data in a fiscal year that has not yet been fully closed. This is because the GRINYA process uses information that would be deleted by this action. For best results, check whether the logistical balance for non-invoiced receipts matches the balance of the GRINYA accounts for the periods up to which you want to delete purchase order data.
  • When a purchase order is canceled, you can only delete the purchase order and the related tables. If only a purchase order line is canceled, the line can be deleted and archived.
  • Purchase contracts must be archived before purchase orders can be archived.

You cannot delete a purchase order (line) if:

  • The linked warehouse order is closed but cannot be removed.
  • The purchase order is linked to a PCS pr

Infor LN & Baan Tip & Tricks for TECHNOLOGY: Using Table Boosters to Speed Up Sessions & Processes

Kathy Barthelt 0 1048 Article rating: 5.0

To increase the speed of sessions and processes slowed by large amounts of data, you can use table boosters. These speed up access to specific database tables by loading the table, or a specified part of it, into memory. Table boosters are defined in the Table Boosters (tcmcs0598m000) session.

Tables

Table boosters are implemented for tables. By default, table boosters are not active. When you access a table, LN builds a list of tables for which you can activate the boosters in the Table Boosters (tcmcs0598m000) session.

Note: You can only activate table boosters for tables that have been accessed at least once.

For more information, refer to the LN - Performance, Tracing, and Tuning Guide (U9357).

When the originating order or order line of an outbound order line is canceled or changed, this affects the outbound order line and may impact the related outbound advice, shipments, or shipment lines.

For most order origins, warehousing order-type parameters determine whether these actions are allowed:

  1. Update the outbound order line if the originating order is changed.
  2. Cancel the originating order line and the outbound order line.
  3. Delete the canceled outbound order line.

Infor LN & Baan Tip: The ABC’s & 123’s of Serialized Items

Kathy Barthelt 0 3138 Article rating: 5.0

A serialized item is a physical occurrence of a standard item that is given a unique lifetime serial number. This enables tracking of the individual item throughout its lifetime, for example, through the design, production, testing, installation, and maintenance phases. A serialized item can consist of other serialized components.

In Service, a serialized item can be a customer-specific or owner-specific installation. Installation groups are a group of installations/serialized items such as photocopiers, computers, air conditioners, forklifts, lathe machines, and even aircraft.

A serialized item is identified by both the item code and serial number. You can set up the mask used to generate the serial numbers so the serial number includes some fields of the item data, such as the item group and the manufacturer.

In a multi-company structure, the companies can share the serialized item data. All the service departments in the various companies can refer to the same serialized items.

The serialized item can originate from a sales order or a project. The details of a serialized item indicate their origin, for example, by using specific sets of serial numbers for items that originate from sales orders and from projects. Serialized items can also originate from an as-built structure or directly from the production bill of material in Manufacturing.

​Infor LN & Baan Tip: Determining What Data to Archive or Delete

Kathy Barthelt 0 4946 Article rating: 5.0

Ensuring access to historical logistical and financial transaction information for your employees is crucial. However, before proceeding with archiving or deletion, it's essential to evaluate the necessity of retaining this data. Baan and Infor LN (ERP LN) offer standard archiving sessions within major modules that typically handle a significant volume of historical transactions. These sessions are designed to transfer historical data to an archive company before deleting it from the operational company.

When it comes to archiving sessions, you have three primary options:

Finance: Cost Rollup by Effective Date
Allow the load standard cost from routing and cost rollup programs to process as of a specified effective date.  With the addition of an optional effective date parameter to prompt screens for cost rollup CST500 and load standards from routing CST600. If entered, only consider bill of material components and routing operations with effective and discontinue dates that make them effective as of the entered parameter effective date.


Operations: Outside Operation Purchase Order Include Vendor Item Number
Copy the vendor item number from the vendor quote to purchase orders created automatically from outside operations of shop orders. During the process of automatically creating purchase orders from outside operations of shop orders, copy the vendor item number from the vendor quote to the purchase order line. With this change, looking at a purchase order that was created automatically for an outside operation of a shop order, the vendor item number from the vendor quote will be visible on the purchase order line.


Technology: Group Security for ILM501 Inbound Delivery Maintenance
Add function key / action code security to control who is authorized to create/revise/delete functions in ILM501 Inbound Delivery Maintenance.  With added Group Security, managers can control which users are authorized to create, change and delete deliveries in ILM501 Inbound Delivery Maintenance.
