UDF for customers only

0 Kudos

Hi All,

When we create UDF under Business Partner Master Data, we get the UDFs in all BP types (i.e. customers, suppliers). Is there are a way to display customer relevant UDFs for customers and supplier UDFs for suppliers, when we browse, open master files.  Say I'm looking at a customer file I only see customer specific UDFs, preferably in the front windows (add through EDIT Form UI tool)

I had the same issue, and I tried to solve through FMS.

I explain my method:

1. I created all categories for UDF.

2. I created a list of categories for customers and another for suppliers.

3. I added a FMS that selects the list by cardtype.

if (select cardtype from ocrd where cardcode = $[OCRD.cardcode] )  = 'C' select 'Customer' else select 'Supplier'

It's fine, but the FMS does not trigger. The user has to trigger the FMS. Perhaps with a little UI addon this can be solved.

Kind regards

B1UP can do it but it is tricky. You need to moved the UDFs onto the screen and on the fly show and hide (using B1 Validation) the relevant fields.

Hi Dick,

Currently that is not possible in B1. An addon like B1UP might be able to achieve something like this. You can ask about it.
