Feature - Extra Item Data Last Access Update
Release date: 8/10/2021
Version: 8.5 & Up
The purpose of these changes is related to the update of the following two fields in the Item Master file: ITEM-DATE-LAST-ACCESS and ITEM-USER-LAST-ACCESS.
These two fields are updated when a user adds or changes an item in Item File maintenance or uses the CSV import utility to add or change an item. However, these fields are not updated when a user goes to Item-File-Maintenance and updates the Extra Item Data. These fields may be updated by selecting the Extra-Data option:
or by pressing ALT-X (or Special Function and choosing Extra Item Data).
Using either option will bring the following Extra Item Data window:
When a user makes changes in this window, the two LAST-ACCESS fields will currently not be updated. This may cause issues if these LAST-ACCESS fields are used to determine if an item record should be interfaced to other programs. To start updating the LAST-ACCESS fields when a change is made to any field on the Extra Item Data Window, go to Global Setup --> Dist --> I/m global control --> screen 4, and change field "11. Upd Item Last Access Info When Chg Extra Item Data?" to "Y."
