Message Descriptions (ttadv4150m000)

Use this session to translate messages. Messages are used to show situation-dependent information to the user. They can concern error messages, special instructions, but also situation-dependent field prompts. Message codes can be used in program scripts. They are linked to domains, tables, table fields, form fields, and so on.

To translate messages:

  • Select the language and package VRC code for the messages that you want to edit or translate.
  • Select the code of the message.
  • Edit the message or translate it into the right language.
Note: You can only maintain messages in your current package VRC.

Messages are used in Tools to show situation-dependent information to the user, for example, error messages or special instructions. If the messages are in your current package VRC, you can maintain them here.

The messages that are displayed in this session can contain codes such as %1$s, %1$d, and %1$e. If Tools is running, these codes are substituted by strings, digits, exponents, and so on.

For information about using the codes, refer to the Infor ES Programmers Guide (Infor Support Portal KB 22924522).
