CUSTOM.pll and Descriptive Flexfield

CUSTOM.pll and Descriptive Flexfield

Hi. Not sure if this is the right forum but I would appreciate any help.

I am trying to display a DFF on the Journal Lines when an account is flagged as being of a specific type.

I have activated a descriptive flexfield on the flex value for the accounts which basically says if it is a related party account or not. When a journal line is being entered I need to display the Journal Line descriptive flexfield if the code combination being used on the line has an account which is flagged as a related party account. The only reference field available on the Journal line DFF is the accounting flexfield.

I thought that if I write a function to return a true/false(or Yes/No) result and to be run in the CUSTOM.pll and if true then display the descriptive flexfield segment required. Is this possible? Has anyone done anything similar?

Thanks in Anticipation

RE: CUSTOM.pll and Descriptive Flexfield


this sure should be possible with the new Forms Personalization (more stable and more easy to maintain than the Custom.pll).

Kind regards,
Roel Hogendoorn
