Main SAP Note 2019275 (click for link)
NOTE: This article has been adapted from the main SAP note and expanded upon based on several installations.
- You need to have B1i installed
- You need the current .keystore password located at: C:\Program Files (x86)\SAP\SAP Business One Integration\IntegrationServer\Tomcat\conf\server.xml
- Search the XML document for the keystorePass attribute. Default that I have observed has been sapB1iP
- You need a domain name associated with your raw IP address. IE, mobile.lhimports.com as an example. This must resolve to their static IP address with an A record in the subdomains DNS.
When working with my support clients I often request screenshots. I see many different variations in terms of what I receive. Some use clipper programs and some literally print the screen, highlight and then scan it back into the system.
PRO Tip: Add crop to your Quick Access toolbar in Outlook to make cropping easier.
I’m guessing most people do not know that your computer actually has a screenshot button called “Print Screen.” If you go ahead and look at your keyboard, in the upper right side of your keyboard you will see it. Could be “PrntScrn” or “Print Screen” but it does the same function. It simply captures what is on screen into your computer clip board.
Since SAP Business One 9.0 I had been hearing about new EFT capabilities built right into the system and I had a client request this feature so I decided to really dig into the subject. So after a LOT of investigation and testing I will summarize in plain English what I found.
(NOTE: my focus here is on EFT files, NOT bank reconciliation files but SBO can do this as well. I will attempt to note this whenever possible.)
SAP Business One Has a Really Well Thought Out EFT System
It’s hard to find and understand but it is well thought out once you get the hang of it. It can do EFT files for payment, import files for bank reconciliation and generate CSV files in specific format for any other file type you would want to work with. I was using it specifically for an EFT outgoing payment file to a bank for payments.
When you make a dropdown list in SAP the data is stored as a code in the system. When trying to do an SQL query or Crystal Report you will find that only the code is output so the user reading the query / report doesn’t see the description.
I had recently needed to make a Pareto analysis chart in Crystal Reports and couldn’t figure out how to do it through the chart expert.
The trick is to Record Sort the data into the order you want and it will sort the bar chart the same way. I did an SQL view to which listed my unique descriptions and then a COUNT() operation.
Positive self-talk sounds pretty hippy-dippy but it can make a huge difference in your every day life. If you walk around all day telling yourself you suck and that you are ugly and that you can’t do it (whatever IT is) then it will become true.
“Your mind will be like its habitual thoughts;
for the soul becomes dyed with the color of its thoughts.”
~ Marcus Aurelius
If you don’t take things too personally and you keep your thoughts in the positive you will always have a better day. If you focus on the negatives all day then you will not only run yourself down but likely your day will be bleak. “No thought lives in your head rent free” and each thought you think literally uses some of your body’s electrical energy. You would be surprised at how run down you can get just running through random thoughts in the day.
