How to automatically deduct a percentage from an invoice

Lawson allows you to use distribution codes that allow for percentages to be negative which would create a deduction. Book the invoice at normal 100% for the expense account and use the distribution code to book the discounts to the proper GL accounts. The amount of the invoice will need to be adjusted to reflect the deductions taken.

If there is a vendor who always gets the same deductions, you can add the distribution code to their AP10 Vendor Record and it will always default onto invoices for that vendor.

IPA v11 Link to Download IP Designer

IP Designer is no longer downloaded from InforXtreme, starting with IPA version 11.

The link to download can now be found in the validation URLs that are generated during the install. These web pages can be found on your Landmark server at LADIR/validationurls-<productline>.htm.

Landmark 11 Validation URLs & Rich Client Links

Landmark version 11 still has the validation URLs in the LADIR folder, but the Rich Client download link has moved.

To access the Rich Client download, use the URL https://<LANDMARK-SERVER>/canvas/native/.  You will find all the Rich Client links at this location.

NOTE: In v11, the validation URLs page contains the link to download IP Designer.

Error Running Lawson Command Line Utilities

UnsupportedClassVersionError occurs when running Lawson command line utilities. This could mean that Lawson is using an incompatible version of Java. Make sure you have a compatible version of java installed and activated. If that is the case, then check your enter.cmd file and make sure it isn’t manually setting the JAVA_HOME variables to the incorrect version of java. If it is, update to point to the correct location.

IFS Database Error

If you are unable to log into Infor Federation Services (IFS) with a very vague error message, check the event viewer on the AD FS server to see if there are any more descriptive messages there. A database login issue could indicate that the install user for IFS doesn’t have the proper permissions on the database. Make sure the Lawson and spinstall accounts both have full access on the two databases that are created by the IFS install.
