Sergey has a new post up about how to reuse a project lookup field. I don’t really understand all the code, but I do understand that he is adding a project lookup field to a screen that didn’t have a project lookup field. And, in order to do this, he is taking the code from an existing screen. Also, there is something about this being possible in the latest version of Acumatica (version 4.2). Again, I don’t completely understand what is going on here, but it’s encouraging to see that you can add a project lookup field to a screen that didn’t have one before. I would LOVE to be able to do this in Sage 500 ERP, but, alas, it’s not possible unless we were to pay tens of thousands of dollars to buy the source code. It’s definitely much simpler in Acumatica.

After graduating from UCLA with a degree in Applied Mathematics, I started my career in downtown Los Angeles at Deloitte and Touche as an auditor. Now I'm a "recovering" CPA (inactive) and have been working in ERP since 2005. In 2011, my wife and I made a crazy decision to move from our home town of Southern California to Cleveland, Ohio where I managed the ERP system for a global Manufacturing company. Now we live in Columbus, Ohio and I work with a white-labeled version of the Acumatica product full-time. All the views expressed on this blog are my own.
