More Information


Microsoft Dynamics GP uses the Language ID global variable to specify the language and the country of the current application instance. When tables contain text that can be displayed to a user, the tables frequently have the Language ID field in the primary key. Therefore, the text can appear in the appropriate language or with the appropriate terminology.

For example, the "SY_Error_Messages_MSTR (DYNAMICS.dbo.SY01700)" table has the Language ID field as its first field. This field handles warning dialog boxes in multiple languages.

The Language ID global variable is set by core Dynamics GP code. This code is based on the value of the message 9999 in the LanguageID() global function.

The following table lists the values of the Language ID global variable and the corresponding values of the getmsg(9999) function.
