Need MAS90 Programming Primer

Need MAS90 Programming Primer

Need MAS90 Programming Primer

I am extremely new to MAS90 although I am quite experienced with numerous programming languages.  I am trying to uncover exactly what is happening in this MAS90 system but have hit a brick wall due to the poor documentation of the previous programmer.

I have many files which appear to be programs with the SOA extension.  They seem to be compiled code but I can't access them with anything that I have been able to find.  The first program in this series of events is a VB6 program which I believe is successfully modified to load sales orders into a table called orders_import which is not in our MAS90 SQL database.  I have been unable to find anything which uses that table and brings the contents into MAS90.  I believe the secret lies in these SOA files and within some setup in MAS90.

Are there some MAS90 tutorials and primers out there which would help in uncovering the secrets of MAS90 customization?

RE: Need MAS90 Programming Primer

Couple of questions:

1. What version of MAS are you on?
2. Where is your reseller?
3. You should be on:

A few facts. MAS is written in a language called ProvideX. They have a web page where you can download a lot of information about the program and how it works. With the most recent release of MAS you can use VB to create programs that will write data to MAS data entry tables. You would need a couple of documents from Sage that deals with VB and the Business Object Interface. You would need to attend some classes to learn more and get the documents.

Sorry about waiting so long to reply.  It is version 4.0 and the reseller is here in Raleigh, NC.  I will do some research on it.  Thanks.
