Between 2009 and 2013 I had the opportunity to build a lot of videos designed to introduce the various functional capabilities of SAP Business One - I started when Version 8.8 was the current release and continued through until Version 9.x.

 

In that time, I built quite a lot of content covering the majority of  functions in SAP Business One and over time, I got a lot of feedback that the videos were helpful not only for learning about B1 when deciding if the solution was the right one but partners and SAP Business One users all around the world used the videos to help them learn SAP Business One and deploy the solution.

 

So that's why in a lot of these videos, I refer to myself as a member of the SAP Business One Global team...

So now that I am here helping out the ASUG team with the SAP Business One Community, we thought it would be a great idea to bring all these videos in and centralise them into a single access point - that's the purpose of this page - over time all of the various videos I have built will be indexed and catalogued here for you so that you can use them as a resource to find the answers you need and the guidance on using and deploying the solution.

 

 

A quick point to note, even though some of these videos go back as far as Version 8.8 they are all still relevant - in fact in many instances the functionality is exactly the same, only the look and feel of the Business One menus and cockpits have changed as well as some background plumbing that of course made the solution more robust and faster.

 

So there's a very strong chance that even though the "skin" of B1 may look different these videos will still apply - so we hope you enjoy having access to these and of course, give me your feedback if theres a topic that is missing - if its not on the drawing board to produce already i'll see what I can do to get it there for you!

Often times you need to track different activities in SAP Business One, manage KPI's or generate ad-hoc data sets for further analysis. The SAP Business One Query Tools are great to do this but sometimes it can take a while to master the process of building queries and understanding the different concepts of table joins asnd also the data structures in SAP Business One.

 

This is where the assistance of your peers can be invaluable to help you understand how something is achieved. If you are like me, when you are trying to understand how a technology works it's helpful to have examples to refer to and its even better when those examples can be leveraged in day to day operations of the solution.

 

 

Fortunately I found a recent scenario on the Facebook group I moderate ehre a member of the group wanted to find out  which suppliers were late with their deliveries and two other members stepped up and provided the necessary queries to assist and they agreed to share them with you here.

 

 

Heres the first that shows the deliveries that were late written by John Eduardo Alfaro Vivanco from Cartagena in Bolivia

 

 

SELECT A.DocEntry , A.DocNum , C.DocDueDate AS FechaEntrega , A.DocDate
FROM OPDN A INNER JOIN PDN1 B ON A.DocEntry = B.DocEntry
INNER JOIN OPOR C ON B.BaseEntry = C.DocEntry

WHERE A.DocDate > C.DocDueDate
GROUP BY A.DocEntry , A.DocNum , C.DocDueDate , A.DocDate

 

And another variation that shows deliveries not yet received that are running late written by Joerg Aldinger from SAP Business One partner Consultoria in the Dominican Republic

 

SELECT T0."DocNum", T0."CardCode", T0."CardName", T0."DocDate", T0."DocDueDate" FROM OPOR T0 WHERE T0."DocDueDate" < CURRENT_DATE AND T0."DocStatus" = 'O'


For MS SQL instead of HANA exchange the string CURRENT_DATE for GETDATE()..

 

Thanks to both John and Joerg for their willingness to share their work.
