I received a strange support request today from one of my users that PO number is not shown fully on Purchase Invoice Inquiry Zoom window. Just tried to inquire some purchase invoices myself and I got what she mentioned:
If you see above highlighted PO number, it’s not shown fully. This will be the case only if you use GP’s standard PO number sequence or used entire PO length of 17 characters.
When I checked it on Modifier, I found a nice little icon sitting right next to PO number field, but overlapping it by some millimeters.
This icon denotes whether the PO line item is Drop-Ship or not.
And boy, isn’t that icon looks cute? But unintentionally, it is overlapping on PO number field. Not sure how folks at GP dev team skipped this.
Solution to this issue? Modifier. Use modifier to resize the field, till we get this fixed by GP dev team.
There is an interesting point which Mariano mentions there, which is not about the topic itself, but about how clients have started demanding things from us, consultants, which shows how much clients are aware nowadays.
Modifier with VBA would have been the BEST and easy option for any developer or consultant for this functionality. But looks like the client was strictly against it because *it’s not supported on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client*.
But that demand indeed had led to another superb piece of customization using SDT.
