Adding field to database -- Bad Idea?

Adding field to database -- Bad Idea?

Adding field to database -- Bad Idea?

We are using both of our USRDEF fields in the Customer Master table, however we need one more field (bit) to put "PO Required?" info into.  (Eg. for Customer # 123 if a PO is required then put a 1 in this field, otherwise put a 0.)  

I know how to add the field to the SQL Server database table using Enterprise Mgr and then add it to the form using VBA, but is this a good idea?  What will happen when we upgrade GP in the future -- will my custom field get nixed?  Are there some USERDEF fields in a GP table elsewhere that I can use instead?

RE: Adding field to database -- Bad Idea?

GP exposes an object called the DUOS or Dynamics User Object Store. There is some good documentation in the VBA Developers Guide which can be found in the Dynamics\Documentation\Manuals folder.

I have used this on several occasion to do similar things.
