Help in Epicor 9

I can get it to stay docked while in a particular screen but once I exit
and go back in the help is hidden again. Even if I save the
personalization it still goes away. Once the field help is open, you
can see what the field name is and what table it's from, that is under
technical details. The push pin in the upper right corner of the screen
toggles the autohide.

Subject: [Vantage] Help in Epicor 9








For all of those of you on version 9 do you know how I can doc my help
along the left hand side of the screen. According to the Business
without Barriers seminar I can doc the help and then see help for each
field as well as the table and field name of where the data is stored.

Have anyone been able to make this work?

Thanks!

I'm staring down the neck of having to tackle an install of AQM. Of course
Epicor wants to charge us consulting fees to do this for us has anyone done
it them self with out Epicors help?

Charlie,
They were none too subtle with me that "of course" they would install it. Either (a) the documentation on how to install it is worse than the Vantage upgrades and/or (b) there is money to be made by having them install it.
Â
P.S. And every time you patch Vantage, they want to come back out and verify you are still properly connected to AQM. They'll get to be a member of the family!

I installed it myself. Although I should quality the myself with... a bunch of phone calls to tech support due to bad documentation (missing in some places) and other issues/clarifications (mostly how to test whether the damned thing was working).

Here are the steps in brief:

install sql 2005 server (easy)
install service connect (could be a pain due to ambiguous documentation, or at last was for me a few times, could be really simple, luck of the draw type of thing IMHO)
install/configure Vantage web services (this is what the other poster is talking about with new patch, these have to be "re-installed" and server has to be re-booted, this takes about 10 minutes, fairly simple process once you know it)
install aqm (this itself is very easy)
run scripts to prepare AQM to talk to Vantage (easy) (get these from epicor's website)
configure service connect (lots of steps, can make a typo, etc) - get files from epicor's website (plus more documentation)
install tool kit that does the transfer from sc output to AQM
configure tool kit (documetnation missing in places, had to figure it out on my own, not sure if documentation is up to date now, but its been months since I brougth it up that it is)
modify tool kit .ini files because AQM doesn't support descriptiosn above 100 characters vantage supports 1023984210948120934 charactesr ;)


do some tests, nothign works? maybe I'm doign the wrong tests or doing the tests wrong? yep, still doesn't seem to work 100%, why? because its not finished yet (as advertised)

Anyway its doable, but you need lots of time, lots of patience, and hopefuly a test environment to make a lot of mistakes, also you need a good amount of IT knowledge spanning multiple disciplines and possibly some luck.


If you have more specific questions or if you run into problems feel free to ask.
In your experience how much of Service connects resources are then tied
up in the AQM process? Do you find other workflows waiting or hanging
up due to contention of resources? Assuming you have other Service
connect applications of course. Just monkey curiousity..

I don't have any other SC apps, but... after the initial data population (which varies depending on how much parts/customers etc you have, this may take a day or more) its just when a new part (for example) gets created or a part gets updated. Depending on how much you do that... either way it shouodnt' be too much, because the amount of data that gets kicked out of Vantage and into AQM is very small (and vice versa: AQm into Vantage).

Usually its kind of like this:
part number, description, revisiion, company, drawing number,

here is an example of the intermediate file before it hits AQM

42-0016-04|KETASPIRE 820 NT NATURAL PLATE 1.000 X 6.000 X 12.000|C||0|0|AQM|||20

(pipes seperate columns)

I wouldn't worry about AQM's impact on SC

funny thing is...

that for some reason SC will sometimes generate empty outputs like so...

|||||||||

no idea why this is, tech support blames it on the fact that I installed SC/AQM/SQL/Progress/Vantage all on the same server. That's obviously a pretty crazy explanation (why would it work 99% of the time?), but I suppose its the best they have.
Well of course its your fault..what were you thinking?

Nothing!!
We bought it and it was far from "plug it in and stand back". So, we are waiting to see if future business conditions mandate that we HAVE to take that road and then we'll come back for a decision to invest in it .... OR look to another solution.

I don't remmeber getting this error when I did the install (I did it several times btw on VM servers until everything worked well then on the live server, then on a backup/test server.

My suggestion is to double check your other steps, make sure that you didn't skip something.

Good luck

The instructions are worse than vague, they are incomplete. It is impossible to set up AQM using those instructions alone.

Here is the basic gist of what you have to do, some of this stuff you probably know, but to attempt to be as clear as possible I'll spell them out so that we are on the same page:

Vantage communication with AQM:

Part changed in Vantage, BPM picks this change, BPM creates output file, SC picks this file up, modifies the output file, API Toolkit runs against the finished SC output files and updates AQM

The step you are having problem with (it sounds to me) is to get the API tool kit to work, there are clues in the instructions hence the reason I was able to figure it out, but it took a bit of frustration.

Here is how the process works:

The API Toolkit works off of .ini files, these files map the "ERP Database" with the "Staging Database", and provide other info on how the communication is supposed to happen. This is confusing because the "ERP database" isn't Vantage progress db (as I originally thought), but the output files (text files) from SC with the part number, description, rev etc.

The "Staging Database" is tables created in the AQM database (MS SQL) that then are transfered into the main AQM tables.

You need to configure the .ini files for this communication to take effect. This is what isn't documented in the instructions.

So at first I struggled to configure "ERP Database" as a progress database. But then I realized I have to configure that as a Microsoft Text Driver type ODBC setup. (This is done in Control Panel - ODBC - System DSN). It would be easier for me to simply send you screen shots than type it all out. So let me know your email address if you want the screen shots.

Once you configure the ERP database source, and the Staging Database, then the cruicial missing info is filled in and the rest of the provided documentation kind of lets you struggle along to completion.

ODBC setup. (This is done in Control Panel - ODBC - System DSN). It would be
easier for me to simply send you screen shots than type it all out. So let
me know your email address if you want the screen shots.

Once you configure the ERP database source, and the Staging Database, then
the cruicial missing info is filled in and the rest of the provided
documentation kind of lets you struggle along to completion.

This is major help I just me be able to do this now. I still would
appreciate the screen shot as well.

Subject: [Vantage] Re: AQM Install








The instructions are worse than vague, they are incomplete. It is impossible
to set up AQM using those instructions alone.

Here is the basic gist of what you have to do, some of this stuff you
probably know, but to attempt to be as clear as possible I'll spell them out
so that we are on the same page:

Vantage communication with AQM:

Part changed in Vantage, BPM picks this change, BPM creates output file, SC
picks this file up, modifies the output file, API Toolkit runs against the
finished SC output files and updates AQM

The step you are having problem with (it sounds to me) is to get the API
tool kit to work, there are clues in the instructions hence the reason I was
able to figure it out, but it took a bit of frustration.

Here is how the process works:

The API Toolkit works off of .ini files, these files map the "ERP Database"
with the "Staging Database", and provide other info on how the communication
is supposed to happen. This is confusing because the "ERP database" isn't
Vantage progress db (as I originally thought), but the output files (text
files) from SC with the part number, description, rev etc.

The "Staging Database" is tables created in the AQM database (MS SQL) that
then are transfered into the main AQM tables.

You need to configure the .ini files for this communication to take effect.
This is what isn't documented in the instructions.

So at first I struggled to configure "ERP Database" as a progress database.
But then I realized I have to configure that as a Microsoft Text Driver type
ODBC setup. (This is done in Control Panel - ODBC - System DSN). It would be
easier for me to simply send you screen shots than type it all out. So let
me know your email address if you want the screen shots.

Once you configure the ERP database source, and the Staging Database, then
the cruicial missing info is filled in and the rest of the provided
documentation kind of lets you struggle along to completion.
