We’re all looking for fields we can use for something else without bringing the system down. Inventory is a popular area where we never seem to have enough fields. How many times have you looked through that Item Maintenance window looking for a field you can ‘re-purpose’. I always use the Item Code field. It’s a 15 character string field, but it’s not visible on the window. It’s been in the table for eons, but the powers that be never exposed it on the window. Well, we all have Modifier now, so that’s a quick and easy way to reveal the field .
Here’s my window - I’ve got Item Code in a field above Item Class, but you can put it anywhere you like.
That’s my tip for today!
Until next time,
