How to use RefRecId to get the reference value using X++.

Posted on by 171


I am working on customization where I have to pick the data from one form to another form on some certain condition using a batch job. The problem is that I have a customized table XYOvertimeRequest in which I have a RefRecId field with the name "HCMWorker" (i.e; XYOvertimeRequest.HCMWorker) and this field is returning the name of an employee using RefGroupField. How I can use this RefRecId field to get the name of an employee in my method ProcessData() of a batch job. Here is my code,

private void ProcessData()


    XYOvertimeRequest           overtimeRequest;

    XYOvertimeRequestLines      overtimeRequestLines;

    ABC_BulkPayment            bulkPayment; 


   select * from overtimeRequest

   where overtimeRequest.WorkflowState == TradeWorkflowState::Completed

   && overtimeRequest.ABC_PaymentStatus == ABC_PaymentStatus::NotPicked; 

   if(overtimeRequest.RequestID == overtimeRequestLines.RequestID)


       bulkPayment.OvertimeRequestID = overtimeRequest.RequestID;

       bulkPayment.RequestDate = overtimeRequest.RequestDate;

       bulkPayment.Employee =   (overtimeRequest.HcmWorker); //Here I am finding the operand type error too, also Employee has type string.

       bulkPayment.Department = overtimeRequest.Department;

       bulkPayment.Grade = overtimeRequest.Grade;

       bulkPayment.PlanOvertimeRequestID = overtimeRequest.PlanOvertimeRequestId;

       bulkPayment.TotalHours = overtimeRequest.OTHours();

       bulkPayment.TotalAmount          = overtimeRequest.OTAmounts();





So is there is any way to get the employee name using this RefRecId, Thanks.

    Hi bilal170795,

    RefRecId is a type that usually used for RecId-based relations. It means that field overtimeRequest.HcmWorker contains RecId value for record in HcmWorker table.

    To get name for worker using RecId field, you need to select record from HcmWorker (you can use find record) and use name method to get worker name
