How to fill in the footer of SO with freetext of customer automatically

Dear all,

There is a function under the GOTO menu, named Opening and Closing Remarks. there are 2 frames in this window. By checking the System Information, I find the bottom frame call footer. It can store up to 64000 characters. It fixed me. I want to fill much text in it, Using the free_text of customer just right on this SO.

I try to create an Use-Defined Value on this footer for catching the free_text of customer. But it seems doesn't work.Following are my test SQL sentences and its running result:

1) SQL:SELECT T0.Free_Text FROM OCRD T0 WHERE T0.CardCode=$【$ 4.0.0】

After using shift+F2 on foot, it show's nothing. I check the running SQL :SELECT T0.Free_Text FROM OCRD T0 WHERE T0.CardCode=N''

2)SQL:SELECT T0.Free_Text FROM OCRD T0 WHERE T0.CardCode=$【ORDR.CardCode】

After using shift+F2 on foot, a system warning shows: Internal error(-1004) occurred (message 131-183)

how can I do to get it? Otherwise B1 doesn't support using variable between two separate interface ?

Thanks in advance

The problem is that you cannot reference fields in the main window from within the Opening and Closing Remarks window. I think that you have 4 options.

1. Select from a list of all Free_Text.

If you use the SQL above, it will show you Free_Text for all BP's so you have to find and select the one that you want.

2. Enter the BP Code and find the Free_Text from that.

To do this, right-click and Copy the BP Code in the SO header, then open the 'Opening and Closing Remarks' window, and paste the BP Code into the footer (Closing Remarks). This UDV will allow you to replace the BP Code with the Free_Text.

SELECT CASE WHEN EXISTS (SELECT CardCode FROM OCRD WHERE CardCode = $[$10.1]) THEN (SELECT Free_Text FROM OCRD WHERE CardCode = $[$10.1]) ELSE $[$10.1] END

3. Add a UDF to the document header and use that for the footer.

4. Print OCRD.Free_Text on orders but do not copy it to the orders.

I hope that this helps.
