Hi Guys.

This is not aimed at the guru's out there but the new Developer, who might be struggling, with C/AL Code like we all were once.

I have been working all weekend on getting my new website up and runing, while looking for something to put on it, I decided to do a free tutorial as a test.

It is a G/L Account tutorial with 13 Accounting Periods and Fiscal Year Dynamic fields, this is something that is asked for a lot, and quite easy to do, there is a Scenario, Analysis and a working solution.

Its a 23 pages pdf file, with lots of screen shots and easy to follow pages, and you can download a source text fob as well.

It will give you an insight as to how to read code you may have seen.

You do not have to register to download it, as it is on my personal space.

All I would ask is you make a comment after you have read, or tried the tutorial, as to if it was a help or not, how I can improve the tutorial.

Good Luck

If Admin wants a full zipped copy to upload here as well let me know.

    Hi Guys

    It seems my Tutorial may be only for the GB version.

    Feedback from Norway
    Codeunit 395 - PeriodFormManagement does not include :
    a: SetCalendarSource
    b: BuildDateFilter

    this wil enable you to still create the report on the base calendar
    // a: SetCalendarSource
    // PeriodFormMgt.SetCalendarSource(CalendarSource);

    b: BuildDateFilter
    // DateFilter[14] := PeriodFormMgt.BuildDateFilter(Calendar);
    DateFilter[14] := STRSUBSTNO('%1..%2',Calendar."Period Start",NORMALDATE(Calendar."Period End"));

    I do not have the W1 objects so I cannot find out, if these functions are in the WW1 Database.

    If anyone can give me a link to download a Version 4, WW1 backup, email me please!.
    I will then develop any Tutorials in WW1, and GB if required.
    And create a WW1 version of tutorial_1

    The woldwide version of Tutorial 1 (W1) is now released, and can be read from the tutorial page, and the tutorial (W1) pdf and worldwide fobs can also be downloaded from the downloads page.

    This is to accommodate the differences in date functions and the localized GB database, where there are additional functions and tables, alse there was an issue with a font i used this has also been fixed in both W1 and UK versions, I even changed it to use the US date format MM/DD/YY :lol:

    Try Winrar. Whenever windows archiving tool fails, Winrar usually manages to deal with it.

    WinRAR doesn't work. It gives me an error. I can see, what files there are but cannot open or extract it.
    Thanks

    Try downloading it again, it would have been standard Windows Zip to allow all users to unzip it, it has been downloaded many times over the last two years so it might just be a problem with your download.

    Any problems email me david.cox@adeptris.com and I will email it to you.

    So where is that download? I can't find any tutorials except the postcode one, is that what you're talking about?

    There are only the two, Dynamic Date report which is 13 columns, and the postcode ones, GB and Worldwide.

    I done these when I was off work about 2 years ago, the idea was to expose some of the built in code that can be used for returning Accounting Period filter strings etc: these were just a spare time project aimed at new developers rather than the Guru's.

    The GB database has a different Accounting Period table and different code, to allow for 4-4-5 retail accounting.

    Aha now that you added all that information to your original post it makes more sense, I thought you wrote a more general, elaborate tutorial. Nice work, and keep the free stuff coming :)
