Here at JDEtips, we've worked with many clients over the years that really didn't understand the magic behind the curtains, otherwise known as Master Business Functions. One of the greatest attributes of JD Edwards is the fact that it is so highly configurable, but how can you configure it if you don't understand what goes on behind the scenes? Russ does an especially good job of not only explaining the power of MBFs, but he explains the flow of data between the applications and literally even as it is passed between multiple Master Business Functions. You will fully understand the results of each and every Processing Option setting, which makes this article a gold mine!

Master Business Functions (MBFs) are interactive programs with processing options that are "called" or referenced by other programs. MBFs are shared by many programs so that data management is consistent throughout the system. While JDE contains many MBFs, only a handful are user configurable. It is this category of MBFs which Russ will be focusing on in this article.

Looking for the "Z" in "EZ"? Paul Hanson continues his quest to simplify JD Edwards for your technical staff. This issue, he presents a case for the Z-file process that already exists in both EnterpriseOne or World. With his overview and real-life example, Paul shows how this interface can make transferring data between an external system and JD Edwards a lot "EZ-er" than you think! Better yet, it uses a process already available in the system!

That first year with JD Edwards can produce some level of discomfort as users and IT alike try to work out the "kinks". So, it's not a complete surprise when departments try to keep as much detail as possible with each transaction. The only problem is, after a while, files get bigger and bigger--F0911 becoming one of the largest. And with bigger files, of course, comes system slow downs. Lina Hadi understands that, and offers some tips on how to minimize F0911 record creations during that crucial first year, while still having access to the details when needed.

So, what you really need is your own "island" in which to access tables and experiment with data; without disrupting the rest of the network (and risk getting "voted" off the bigger corporate "island"). Think that's an impossible dream? Ted Aseltine shares his know-how on how to do just that by accessing JDE Standalone data through Microsoft Access. Before you know it, you, too, will be able to test away on your own little standalone "island" worry-free (palm trees and umbrella drinks optional).

We've got the scoop straight from source! Glenn Robinson fills us in on the latest release of i5/OS--after of course he's given it his own "test drive" and learned the ins and outs of what makes it tick, what makes it great (and what he thinks could use a bit of enhancement). So, without further ado, here's what you need to know about V5R4!

When the project manager asks for volunteers to head up the data conversion project, it's amazing how many people have urgent plans to be elsewhere during that time - even before they know the dates! But once you get your hands on this article, you'll be the first to step up to the plate, because you'll be fully armed with the tools to make and execute a solid conversion plan.

Well, it looks as if we are going to have to establish a new category for the JDEtips Document Library. We considered running this as our humor piece, but it has so much good technical information in it, we couldn't quite see that. Can't go in World Technical, because it's applicable to both World and EnterpriseOne. So, you will just have to decide for yourself whether to read this for a good laugh or to read it for the last word on the JDE Julian Date conundrum.

Third Party DLLs are very useful in writing programs for customization, integration and implementation of JDE applications. JDE customers as well as Independent Software Vendors can develop various utilities to be used with JDE's programs. These 3rd Party DLLs can play a major role in integrating the applications in a heterogeneous application environment.
