How to retrieve the next document number for Inventory transactions when you use the Miscellaneous Routines Assembly in eConnect

INTRODUCTION

This article describes how to retrieve the next document number for Inventory transactions when you use the Miscellaneous Routines Assembly in eConnect in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

MORE INFORMATION

The Miscellaneous Routines Assembly in eConnect contains methods that you can use to retrieve the next document number for various document types in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

The following sample code illustrates how to retrieve the next document number for Inventory transactions by using Microsoft Visual C# code and by using Microsoft Visual Basic .NET 2003 code.

Before you use the sample code, you have to set the following references: • eConnect.MiscRoutines.dll
• System.Enterprise.Services



To set these references, follow these steps:

1.

In Microsoft Visual Studio, right-click References . In Solution Explorer , click Add Reference .

2.

Open the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Great Plains\eConnect9\Objects\DOT NET

3.

Click the eConnect.MiscRoutines.dll reference.

4.

Under .NET , click the System.Enterprise.Services reference.

Microsoft Visual C#

//C#
using System;
using System.Collections.Generic;
using System.Text;
using Microsoft.GreatPlains.eConnect.MiscRoutines;

namespace MiscRoutinesConsole
{
    class ClassMiscRoutines
    {
        static void Main(string[] args)
        {
            try
            {
                string cnString = @"Data Source=MYSERVER;initial catalog=TWO;integrated security=SSPI;
                persist security info=False;packet size=4096";

                GetNextDocNumbers oNextDoc = new GetNextDocNumbers();
                string nextIVNumber = "";
                GetNextDocNumbers.IVDocType docType;

                Console.WriteLine("Please select a document type: ");
                Console.WriteLine("1 = IV Adjustment");
                Console.WriteLine("2 = IV Transfer");
                Console.WriteLine("3 = IV Variance");
                string sDocType = Console.ReadLine().ToString();

                switch (sDocType)
                {
                    case "1":
                        docType = GetNextDocNumbers.IVDocType.IVAdjustment;
                        break;
                    case "2":
                        docType = GetNextDocNumbers.IVDocType.IVTransfer;
                        break;
                    case "3":
                        docType = GetNextDocNumbers.IVDocType.IVVariance;
                        break;
                    default:
                        throw new Exception("Invalid Document Type");
                }
                nextIVNumber = oNextDoc.GetNextIVNumber(GetNextDocNumbers.IncrementDecrement.Increment, docType, cnString);
                Console.WriteLine("The next " + docType + " Document Number is " + nextIVNumber);
                Console.WriteLine("Press <Enter> to close...");
                Console.Read();
            }
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString());
                Console.WriteLine("Press <Enter> to close...");
                Console.Read();
            }
        }
    }
}
