How to do a pop-up message without use of SDK - Version 2004A


I need to do a simple pop-up message alert in Ar Invoice form without the use of SDK if I can help.

In fact this is what I need to do. When user types in the quantity of a line item and tabs out I want to check if there is enough stock in hand, and if not, want to pop up a list (such as stock on hand, available etc on all wherehouses).

My client does not want to hit crl+tab on the wharehose field in the matrix. They want it to be automatic like i mentioned above.

If you know of a solution or a workaround, please do share. appreciate a lot.

    In my opinion (based on normal business practice), item transaction on order to A/R Invoice (except delivery)doesn't need information about stock, because it only effect on "comitted stock" only (no need of quantity on hand, etc). If you block this transaction because onhand quantity below level, it will stop your sale employee to doing their job (making sales order as much as posible). On thing you have to consider is the "available" stock quantity (onhand-committed+ordered), if this value is negatif, it's mean that you have to buy or produce that item (increase ordered quantity).


    If your client still want to display that info:

    1. Create a query that compare item quantity in the document to onhand stock quantity, than display stock position (onhand, comitted, ordered, available) if below onhand stock quantity.

    2. In the column next to Quantity (active column after filling Quantity and press Tab key) define your Formatted Search (point to your query above) to display stock position.

    The question is:

    1. What this info are for? If there is no enough onhand stock, will you block the document creation?

    2. There is no need to do this (as i mension above)
