Additional Description Field on RM Transaction

Problem Definition:

ACME needs a second Description field added to the Receivables Transaction Entry. This field also needs to be accessible via SmartConnect.

Design Features:

WilloWare will use Virtual Fields to add an additional string field to Receivables Transaction Entry for the user to enter a second Description field. The field will be located in the following location and labeled Description 2. Due to limitations of Virtual Fields, this field cannot be included in the tab sequencing with the other fields.

Graphical user interface, text, application

Description automatically generated

A matching field will also be added to Receivables Transaction Inquiry Zoom.

When a value is entered into this field and the transaction saved, the additional Description value will be saved to a custom table. This table can be joined to the RM Transaction table and will have the following fields:

Document Type – Integer. Key Field

Document Number – String. Key Field

Description 2 – 60 Character String Field

The name of the table will be provided by WilloWare so ACME can use it for importing and reporting.
