Using the Visual Assist Button

Concept

The Visual Assist button, which is the magnifying glass icon, is a visual assist tool that helps you narrow your search for records by allowing you to enter values (user defined codes, or UDCs) in various fields in EnterpriseOne. This tool helps you eliminate errors because it allows you to select only values that are valid for a particular field.

Procedure

In this task, you will review the Visual Assist button.

Step Action
Navigate to the Address Book Revisions program (P01012).

Click the Fast Path button.

Use the Work With Addresses form to review the visual assist feature in this task.

Step Action
Click in the Search Type field.

Note that the system now displays the Visual Assist button (magnifying glass) next to the Search Type field.

When you click a field that has a list of values associated with it, you see the Visual Assist button. Click it to see a list from which you can select a value for that field.

If you know the appropriate value for the field, you can also type it directly into the field.

Click the Visual Assist button.

The system displays the Select User Define Codes form. The form displays a list of codes that are valid for this field.

A list of codes (referred to as user defined codes or UDCs) for that field appears. For a required field, you must select or enter a value from the list.

Click the V option.

Click the Select button.

Click the Find button.

Note that all the records in the grid have the same search type: V. Each row is a supplier record.
Next, you will select another search type code to find a set of records for all the customers in the system.

Click in the Search Type field.

Click the Visual Assist button.

Click the C option.

Click the Select button.

Click the Find button.

Note that the Search Type field is now populated with the search type for customers: C.
Click the Close button.

You have reviewed the Visual Assist button.
