      • WoozyHi Ginger - sure we can talk. I'm in a conference all day today and out tomorrow, so it will probably need to be next week. Can you give me an idea of what you are looking to find out?

        Are we talking Landmark ProcessFlow (IPA) or Classic LSF ProcessFlow (PFI)? What Infor/Lawson products are you using (S3, Talent Management, etc) and what environment version(s). Kelly

      • Arun MRuma Malhotra Hi Ruma - My name is Arun and I work for a healthcare firm. I just thought will check with you for something. I am currently working on a migration project where in we are moving away from Lawson and bringing in MS4. I am trying to put together a file for deduction data from lawson so that, it can be used as an input to MS4. And I have been having a tough time finding out which fields are from which tables in lawson. I have an excel spreadsheet with the list of fields. I could use some help and wanted to see if you could help me out with this. Thanks a lot!!

            • StephanieHi Arun, have you used the ctrl shift O function? This would tell you the field names in Lawson, you can then input this into MSAddin's Query if you were unsure of what tables the fields came from. I'd be happy to help when general feedback but there may be a lag time with my response.

              Hope this helps!

              • SherriLTM Implementations We are in the process of upgrading to LTM 10.2 and the links to S3 are very cumbersome. We find that from the Lawson Applet screen, when you click on an S3 link you have to log in again. Click on Employee>ToDo>Pay andBenefits>LeaveBalances, we have to login again to Lawson S3 portal. We didn't have to log in twice with the old version. Does anyone know a way to fix this or get around it?

                • stcyrkGreg Moeller With respect to the IC500, you have document number populated which is normally system assigned at the time of issue. How are you doing this?
                  a month ago
                  • Greg MoellerI believe we are just zero-filling the document number, and when it loads, the system assigns whatever it wants.

                  • Greg MoellerAfter further review... I think that is coming from our Cerner (Surginet) system. Not too familiar with what goes on over there. Sorry. I believe that we run a crystal report export it in a certain way to produce the file that is the example that I uploaded.

                Another Update on Alleged Patent Infringement

                Back in 2011, Lawson responded to an Alleged Patent Infringement by replacing Requisition Self-Service (RSS) with Requisition Center (RQC). In the meantime, Lawson has been acquired by Infor, but the patent case still lingers. Here’s an update. Some of you might have received this notice from Infor, and are unsure how this might impact your […]

                Time To Rename LawsonGuru ?

                With Lawson S3 and M3 customers adopting integrated Infor products, is it time to expand and rename the LawsonGuru Letter and LawsonGuru.com? I thought it would be fun to ask the community for advice. Here are some ideas:Filed under: Infor, Infor Acquisition

                I just returned from Orlando, having attended Inforum 2013. Last year’s Inforum, which quickly followed the acquisition of Lawson by Infor, was really just a combination of Lawson’s annual conference (CUE) with Infor’s name and logo slapped on for good measure. This year was quite a different story. Starting with the fact that I was actually […]
