Easily work with dimensions

Goal

Dimensions in the respective sales, purchasing and financial data sets are to be displayed. Just as it happens with global dimension codes 1 + 2. Currently, the assigned dimensions can only be displayed via Navigate> Dimensions.

Idea

FlowFields are added that represent the dimensions configured in Financial Accounting as dimensions 3-8. FlowFilters are also created, which previously defined FlowFields with the right dimension filter on table 480.

Implementation

Table 348, Funktion CheckIfDimUsed

All entries in table 349 (DimensionValue) must have a valid value in the field „Global Dimenson No.“ according to the selection in table 98 (General Ledger Setup). Therefore, the following code was added at the end of the CheckIfDimUsed function:

IF (BudgetNameChecked='') AND (AnalysisViewChecked='') AND (AnalysisAreaChecked=0) THEN BEGIN
  DimVal.RESET;
  DimVal.SETRANGE("Global Dimension No.",DimTypeChecked);
  IF DimVal.FINDSET THEN REPEAT
    DimVal."Global Dimension No." := 0;
    DimVal.MODIFY;
  UNTIL DimVal.NEXT=0;
  IF DimChecked<>'' THEN BEGIN
    DimVal.RESET;
    DimVal.SETRANGE("Dimension Code",DimChecked);
    IF DimVal.FINDSET THEN REPEAT
      DimVal."Global Dimension No." := DimTypeChecked;
      DimVal.MODIFY;
    UNTIL DimVal.NEXT=0;
  END;
END;

Example on Table 36 (Sales Header)

Add new FlowFilter Dimension x Filter (x: 3..10) Code20.

Add FlowField Dimension x Code (x: 3..10) Code20.

  • CalcFormula (x: 3..10):
    Lookup(„Dimension Set Entry“.“Dimension Value Code“ WHERE (Dimension Set ID=FIELD(Dimension Set ID),Dimension Code=FIELD(Dimension x Filter)))
  • CaptionClass (x: 3..10):
    ‚1,2,x‘
  • Editable :
    No
  • TableRelation :
    „Dimension Value“.Code WHERE (Global Dimension No.=CONST(x))

Create Global Function GetDimensionFilter, called once from each form:

//GenLedgerSetup : Table 98

GenLedgerSetup.GET();
SETFILTER("Dimension 3 Filter",GenLedgerSetup."Shortcut Dimension 3 Code");
SETFILTER("Dimension 4 Filter",GenLedgerSetup."Shortcut Dimension 4 Code");
SETFILTER("Dimension 5 Filter",GenLedgerSetup."Shortcut Dimension 5 Code");
SETFILTER("Dimension 6 Filter",GenLedgerSetup."Shortcut Dimension 6 Code");

Example on Page 42 (Sales Order, PageType Document)

Add new variable Dimx (x: 3..10) as Code20.

Create new Field

  • SourceExpr : Dimx (x: 3..10)
  • TableRelation : (x: 3..10)
    „Dimension Value“.Code WHERE (Global Dimension No.=CONST(x))
  • Caption Class (x: 3..10)
    ‚1,2,x‘
  • OnValidate()-Trigger (x: 3..10):
    ValidateShortcutDimensionCode(x,Dimx);

Call the new Function GetDimensionFilter inside OnAfterGetCurrentRecord.

Example on Page 9305 (Sales Order List, PageType List)

Create new Field Dimension x Code (x: 3..10).

Call the new Function GetDimensionFilter inside OnAfterGetCurrentRecord.
