Changing a Warning to and Error on a Form

This may seem to be an easy change, but I cannot seem to find information on it.

On the Work Order Entry (P48013 form W48013A) in 8.12, if an Item is "obsolete", it only gives a "warning message". An End User wants it to be a "error message" so the entry people do not enter work orders with "obsolete" items.

From looking at the code, I am relatively sure it is a configuration issue. However, I cannot seem to remember where the Information/Warning/Error messages are kept (it is in a place you would not expect). Last time I did anything with this was about 5 years ago.

Can anyone direct me to those messages are?

Patrick,

That is changed using the Data Dictionary Error Messages application P92002/W92002F. On the Item Specifications tab at the bottom, the Error Level parameter.

Either change the error in the data dictionary to an error rather than a warning, or create a new error message on the data dictionary, and change the app to use that instead.

I just did that recently. The company I am at changed 3259 from an error to a warning, but wanted it to be an error in P4112. I created 553259 (copied from 3259) and made it a hard error. Then modified P4112 to use this error instead.

I tto need to change the warning message to hard error. I want to know which DD Item is giving this warning message. I have checked the code but I am notable to find any Warning Message DD Items related to Obsolete Item warning message. Can any one give your inputs.

You should be able to expand the error message you get at the top of the screen to see Error ID for the data item to look at.
