SAP Business One database – The odd bits
For todays evening I had originally planned commenting the brand new TechDemo
Addon I published yesterday.
However I had to work with the SAP Business One database today and that changed
my mind in an instance.
I grant the fact that SAP Business One is a grown solution which originated
Sure, it has been adapted to fit the needs of an international market and there
are a lot of remains of the old base..
I also realize that there are some things a developer just has to live with when
using a product he has not created.
However, somtimes you have the feeling that things are just not going the right
way and your inner self refuses to live with the odd bit sticking out.
The odd bit
Today my colleague came to me with a simple question. “We have a time field in a
report which is unformated, could you please alter the format?”
The field showed “1430” instead of “14:30h”. Thinking “Not a big deal“, I
went to check.
