Really struggled with this one for numerous hours, had to call in the resident script god, (Not a Dev).
I'm not sure if we have missed a massive clanger here or if fundamentally there is a flaw, our "Navision" customer has an absolute requirement for the position field to be numbered:
Line 1, Line 2 etc.
So I assumed that the system generated line number would populate the "position" field, this is after all what it appears to represent to me, again I am stupid so this may be incorrect.
To cut a very long story short, "It Can't be Done" is all i've been told so far, yes it can lets make it do it is the answer we need.
This was the scripted solution:
Dim LineItemCount, LoopVar
LineItemCount = me.Field("LineItemsCount").Value
'Loop through every row in the LineItems group
For LoopVar = 0 To LineItemCount - 1 '- 1 because the rows start with zero
me.Field("Position").Items.Item(LoopVar).Value = (LoopVar + 1) '+ 1 to start numbering from 1
Does anyone know if this was in fact achievable out of the box? Is this the logical way, have we managed to fudge it completely somehow or was the perfect?
As always I cant take any responsibility for the script above, it's deployment or usage here after.
Thanks in advance,
