Modifier Quick Tip for Fixed Assets - Don’t check that box!


This came up recently on the forum. A user had modified the ‘Asset User Data’ window. The window previewed perfectly in Modifier, the Modified/Alternate Forms and Reports ID was correctly set, and there was even a period before the window title on the window. However, the window still looked the same as it did when before the modification. What’s going on here?

What’s going on has to do with your choices in the Company Setup window for Fixed Assets. One of the Option items is a checkbox for ‘User Data Auto Format’. If this box is checked, any Modifier changes you make are overridden by the system, and the window displays as it did before it was modified.

The moral of this story is - if you want to modify the Asset User Data window, be sure to uncheck the ‘User Data Auto Format’ checkbox.
