Many companies have expanded the functionality of their JD Edwards databases by using the extensive Used Defined Code (UDC) capability. Because UDCs are very flexible, companies have a wide variety of choices in configuring them to meet specific business requirements.
In this demo-rich webinar we will walk through some lessons learned in the set-up and managing of UDC fields. Topics will include:
- Set up consistency: How can you help insure that mandatory codes are set up accurately and uniformly?
- Options for UDC codes: Flags, Text, Numbers - what are the strengths and weaknesses of each type?
- Implications for building meaning into codes: Using multiple UDC fields to define data vs. a single UDC field.
- Implications for end user tools: Sort Order. What will happen when you make changes in the future. How does the reporting tool interpret and sort your data?
