UserTable Docentry

Hello All,

I do have a question to the UserTable as Object. (master data)

There ist Code (indexed as Primary), Name as standard and as well the Docentry.

The Docentry is managed by B1 it self ok thats clear so far. There are 2 Questions.

1. what is b1 doing with it? (not just numbering)

2. why there is no index on it and as I know there is no option to set an index from api to it?

3. why does the Masterdata Lines do not have the Docentry as a key?

This just to understand the things right.

Best Regards

    Hi Oliver,

    My thoughts on these questions, based on experience with Business One almost-pre-SAP:

    1. B1 uses DocEntry in general as a unique permanent identifier for system use. It is not really meant to play any functional role for the user. That said, my guess is, that it is part of a longer term development plan.

    2. Indexes take up space, and (as far as I know) DocEntry (in master data anyway) is not used in any active capacity that would warrant an index.

    3. Good question. Looking at some suggestions on the SAP Business One Idea Place, perhaps SAP will introduce such a key binding at some point in the future.

    My best guess is, that the DocEntry field is relatively new in the B1 master data tables. The original design structure appears to bind all header - row tables using ItemCode and CardCode.

    In other words, it developed this way, it was not designed this way from the start.
