Infor VISUAL ERP Tip | Edit custom user-defined forms

Did you know that you can edit custom user-defined forms in VISUAL?

Do you use custom user-defined forms in VISUAL 7.0+, such as in Purchasing or Customer Order Entry?

Don't you wish the radio button that reads "User-Defined 1" would say what it means to "Legal Advice" or "Hazardous?"

Well, it can!

  • Go to the Admin --> Preference Maintenance "Purchasing" section. 
  • Then, you will see the Entry column"RenameAckUD1." 
  • Enter the radio button title of your choice into the Value column next to the "RenamAckUD#" 

Then, create the forms VMPURUD1.QRP and VMPURUD2.QRP like you normally would.

And presto!

This works in Order Entry, Shipping Entry, and other windows. You will find an entry similar to "RenameAckUd1" the sections that support this custom editing.
