2. The Answer is..Supplemental Data - Part 1, New Uses for Older Functionality
by Kris Olson (Category: Cross Functional)
" While it's true that Supplemental Data has been around forever, we've never seen it laid out and explained quite as well as in this article. Kris does a fabulous job of utilizing the newer functionality of UDOs to be very creative and even make up for Supplemental Data's 'lack of elegance'. The use of CafeOne to access Supplemental Data from virtually anywhere within E1 is indeed clever as the inconsistency in what programs can actually access this data has always been a major shortcoming. Kris also offers some excellent tips in setting up the database codes and data types allowing for ease of applying row security on the Supplemental Data.
