My first attempts at adding an extended property to the Part table Partnum field, having discovered extended properties:
I have a BAQ producing the Partnum and also a URL which defines the part as an internet link pointing to the QRCode for the part. I want to display this link as an active image (web page) and not a text URL which the current extended property displays…
For this to work your BAQ results can only include the BAQZone Key (Part Num) and your URL field.
If you include other fields it will show a column view and if more than one record returns it will show a Row view.
I have even tried to hardcode the image to point to ‘Epicor.com’ but the same error occurs after the initial screen comes up for about 30 seconds, so I think it may well be a restriction on the Cloud version.
Thank you for that information. I had assumed that was going to be the problem which could be a major gotcha for us as we need to generate dynamic QRCodes on the fly to interface with our legacy systems which process more than simple Partnum information and the extended property solution seemed to be an ideal solution as detailed by Rick.
Oh well, back to the drawing board I guess. I have raised a case about it on the Epicare portal and sorry not to have noticed the thread you mentioned despite doing a search for anything that I thought would throw light on the problem.
