Hello all
I would like to ask the professionals here in this group how to open up an accpac 5.1 form (e.g. PO Entry) and scroll it to a specific record (PO #) Using VB
Thanks in advance

RE: Open UI + scroll

Add a reference to the ACCPAC xAPI 1.1 library.

Create and open a session object. See Thread631-583563 and Thread631-538503 for examples.

Code will be basically as follows.

   Dim myPOnumber as string
   Dim POPOR As ACCPACXAPILib.xapiView
   Set POPOR = Session.OpenView("PO0620", "PO")
   With POPOR
      .Browse "PONUMBER = " & myPOnumber & "", True
      If .Fetch Then
         Debug.Print .Fields("PORHSEQ").value
         Debug.Print .Fields("PONUMBER").value
         Debug.Print .Fields("DATE").value
      End If
   End With
   Set POPOR = Nothing

Thanks and Good Luck!

Thanks zemp for the info
But what i need is to display the accpac UI and then scroll to the PO i want.
The code you wrote just opens the underlying dataset not the form

RE: Open UI + scroll

I don't know of any way that you can get access to a specific ACCPAC form from VB.

Through the VB xAPI you would need to create your own form to display the information.

Thanks and Good Luck!


RE: Open UI + scroll

I have added a new FAQ FAQ631-4231 to demonstrate what you want to do in VBA macro.
In this thread Thread631-660336, sixtyone provided sample codes for opening ACCPACCOMAPI sessions in VB.
Combining the two piece of information you should be able to do what you want in just a few lines of code.
