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 1031 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).

Infor LN & Baan Tip: Financial Integration Mapping Scheme

Transactions to be mapped - In the mapping scheme, you must define the ledger mapping and the dimension mapping for these types of transactions:

  1. Financial integration transactions resulting from logistic events in Operations Management.
  2. General Ledger transactions.
  3. Procurement card transactions in Accounts Payable.


In addition, to support dimension accounting you must define the dimension mapping of financial transactions from Accounts Payable and from Invoicing to the various dimensions.

The setup procedure - creating, changing, or extending an integration mapping scheme, consists of these steps:

  1. Map scheme prerequisites.
  2. If no mapping scheme exists, create a mapping scheme.
  3. Create a mapping scheme version.
  4. Map by Reconciliation Group (tfgld4166m000)
  5. Set up the integration transaction document numbers for the integration transactions.
  6. Set up compression of the transactions.
  7. Check and activate a mapping scheme for your mapping scheme version.
