Item Remarks Field Text Synchronisation

I notice that the Remarks Text field , OITM.UserText in B1 is updated on synchronisation to the PartsNotes table.

Each time it is changed in B1 it creates a new record in PartsNotes. Is this a remnant of functionality which used to exist in NetPoint. Is there a reason for this behaviour and if not could it be corrected so that it correctly updates a single record in Webtools?

I am just thinking that it may ocassionally be useful to be able to use this field data in Webtools since the existing description ( at 254 characters ) may not always be sufficient and the Remarks field (ntext) is at least maintainable from within B1 unlike the extended use of PartsNotes for a product which can only be maintained in Webtools.

    Geoff, why not just write a Synch Plugin that synchs the UserNote field to another field of your choosing?

      I'd love to do this, my problem here is that it is difficult to do from scratch without an example to follow when you're just starting out!

      If someone was willing to share the necessary steps and suggested code to simply get a one-way synch of an additional B1 field synched into a WT field it would be more than welcome ( I'm sure it can't be too long-winded!)

      Other than that it's down to trial and error and I'm sure enough folks have been down that route but it would be nice to get some help just to get started - I know that this is a topic that has been discussed and requested before in this forum


      PS - I have just seen your useful post in relation to a query from Yusuf Abbas - the comment on doing your own work based upon the sample plugin provided was useful and it looks like I'll just have to roll my sleeves up and have a go
