Management Reporter-Column Attribute

Posted on by 136

I need to write a report that contains all of the standard GL attributes of a transaction but I can't figure out which field is the Period to Post in the list of Attributes. I see PerEnt and Posting Layer but nothing that says perpost. Is this in the list of attributes? Please let me know if I'm missing it.

Thank you, Linda Smith

    Thank you for checking into this for me. I also couldn't find a list which is why I asked. I'll have to see how we can create a column layout the at least has the period to post at the top. That may help.

    Thank you, Linda Smith

    Hello Linda,

    I talked to an MR specialist and here is his explanation:

    The period to post does not appear to be an available attribute.   Those are hard coded, so there is nothing they can do to ‘add’ an attribute that is not there.  I’m not sure what the ‘posting layer’ attribute is.  It may have nothing to do with Dynamics SL.  The user guide says “Attribute support may differ between Microsoft Dynamics ERP systems”.  Posting Layer might be an attribute that means something in Dynamics AX or Dynamics GP.  It doesn’t mean anything in Dynamics SL, and it’s not the period to post.

    In other words, Management Report has a list of ‘attributes’ or ‘attribute categories’.  The user cannot edit those.  They cannot add attributes or remove attributes.  Some of those attributes might be specific to AX or SL or GP and might not return anything from the other ERP systems.  Posting Layer appears to not be applicable to SL.  Also, just in case they ask about a list of available attributes, I cannot find one.  There is no ‘attribute list’ in the MR user guide and I cannot find any documentation of the available attributes.

    Best Regards,

    Jana MacDonald
