The Importance of Documentation
I’m getting very frustrated with SAP’s lack of proper and up to date documentation for B1. I’m sure others have felt this way as well, so I’m working myself on documenting everything that I can find for my own purposes, as I need to find the information. I hope that by the time I’ve collected enough information, that I’ll be able to share it with others and help them out where the official documentation is lacking. Here is a case in point – having a cross-reference or link between DI API objects, their equivalent UI API objects, their enumerations and values, and their ultimate link back to the SAP tables. So I’ve started my own spreadsheet to keep track of this. Here’s a screenshot, because apparently SCN doesn’t allow Excel document uploads:
It’s sparse right now, but I’m only filling in information as I come across it and as I find that I need it.
But hey, at least it’s a start, right?
