    Adding new OBJECT-CODE to pc_tab_exp_field.lng

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Aleph
    • Product Version: 20

    Desired Outcome Goal:
    Add new OBJECT-CODE's to ./xxx50/tab/pc_tab_exp_field.lng and start using them. Do the codes need to be entered anywhere else? Can the codes just be made up?

    The OBJECT-CODE's can just made up. (Usually they correspond to "expense classes" used by the accounting office.)

    As described in Additional Information (below), before entering a CODE into an invoice line item (z75) or budget transaction (z601) (via pc_tab_expand), the CODE must be included in the allowable OBJECT-CODE's for this Z76 (budget) record.

    Additional Information

    This issue is addressed in the Z601-OBJECT-CODE entry of the > Ex Libris Documentation Center > Aleph > Technical Documentation > Aleph Oracle Tables z601.pdf document:

    "This field is relevant only if Z601-TYPE = INV. Object codes can be used to classify expenditures. Each code defines a type of object. Object codes are defined in the pc_tab_exp_field.lng table under the OBJECT-CODE section. If the USE-OBJECT-CODE flag of the tab100 table of the library’s tab directory is set to ‘Y’, then when a budget is assigned to the invoice the object code is checked against the allowed object codes assigned to the budget. The Z75-I-OBJECT-CODE field should match one of the object codes (Z76-OBJECT-CODE) assigned to the selected budget."
