which Support should be able to send you. Here's a few pointers.

You can't depend on the Visible property, at least on fields. It works on
some and seems to work on others until you enter data. Development has
stated the best method is to drag the field off the form to make it
invisible.

There's four tabs for PO Lines: Inventory/Other/Job Material/Subcontracting.
Each tab has its own grid and field order. We want all fields in the same
order so we can cut/paste to/from an Excel template. We'll send the
spreadsheet with data to/from the Supplier. But the field order is a
Personalization issue. Well, we don't want everyone required to do
Personalization. So when you're choosing the Customization file, click the
Base Only check box. This effectively becomes the default personalization.
Now you can change column widths, headings and field order and then add
further customizations. Once you've told Menu Structure Maintenance to use
the file, it'll apply to everyone.

Currently i am exploring the customization features and encountered
some issues as below :

Original form in used : SO Entry form.

1. Cannot remove the tab (ie. Summary tab) from the original form.
Action made :
At customization tools dialog. I set the summaryPanel1 property,
visible = false.

Result :
It only hide the content but the tab header remain visible.

Can i remove the tab from the original form ?

2. System halt when i restore the summaryPanel1 property,
visible = true.

Anyone encountered the same problem ?

3. 'Del' function seems not working at the Customization Tool
Dialog.
I tried to use the delete function to remove the summaryPanel1
from the tree view but nothing happen.

Anyone encountered the same problem ?

Have anyone tried the customization features ? Is it working well ?
Any idea where can i get more information on how to do
customization ?

Thanks.
