BPM Condition contains wildcard?
I've written a BPM that send up an exception when certain part numbers are entered on Sales Orders, based on our part number nomenclature. Unfortunately, over the years this nomenclature hasn't been strictly adhered to, so I'm having to get "extra" to exclude the correct parts and cannot get a wildcard to work correctly in a condition.For example, a standard part number may be something like A1454C-3-CI, where the "-3-" refers to the part category. Those are easy to exclude. However, there's also ones like A1454C-3PBA-CI, so I'm trying to get it to trigger on part numbers that contain "-3%-", but that string doesn't work. It doesn't like my percent sign between the 3 and the dash. Works great in a BAQ, but can't get it to work in the BPM, even though it doesn't throw any syntax errors.Is there a different wildcard that I should be using than % (already tried both * and ^ to no different results).
UD field error after importing via solution
Hi,I imported a solution file that contained a number of UD fields. When I load any module with these UD fields, I get the following error(s) for each field. The only thing I thought to try was a data regen and IIS recycle, which had no effect.Has anyone ever had success importing UD fields from one DB to another?Thanks.
Physical Inventory on Serialized Parts
I’m scheduling our annual physical count next month and looking for advice on quick count entry for serialized parts.We have about 6 part numbers with higher than normal stock levels at this time, ranging from a few hundred to 18,000. I really don’t want to enter 20K count tags!Has anyone found a faster way of entering this info? Even using the export to excel and paste insert into count tag entry, it will take me 15 hours to enter one part number.We are on the latest version, but not using many of the kinetic screens yet.TIA

Controlling the Inventory Adjustment account used for cycle count variances, physical inventory variances, cost variances created during the mfg-stk transaction
We want cost adjustments (adj-cst) created when an mfg-stk transaction to point to a different g/l account than quantity adjustments.

Requisition Entry - Purchase order Link

Shipping Report with Order Number and Job Number
I am trying to find a link and create a report that lists the shipping pack list, order number, and the job number. The order number and pack list are pretty straight forward; however I am struggling on finding a link to the job that was used to produce the ship list. Does anyone have a BAQ that does this? or can provide me the correct linkage path.
As a result of a change in the organisation I have a director who is now the senior approver, and cannot approve POs sent through to him. The buyer who raised the PO has this person listed as an authorised user but when the approver attempts to click the approver checkbox he gets a message saying he has exceeded his limit and it should be approved by - and his own name.Can someone help because I’m tearing my hair out with this.

Cannot update the shipping line 10.0.700.4
We are experiencing an issue with a specific customer, where we are unable to pack any of their orders. We get the error below. Does anyone have any experience or recommendations for this error. Its not report related as the order has been recreated multiple times.
Starting Order Number More Than 6 digits
10.2.700 being DMT-loaded in a re-implementation from Vantage 5.The starting order number, XaSyst.StartOrderNum has only six digits, although order numbers are allowed with up to nine digits. I need new orders in the target E10 system to start 1870001 which is a seven digit number.Help says the new order numbers generated will be the greater of StartOrderNum or 1 + the last order’s number on file. However this doesn’t actually seem to be happening. When I DMT-load orders such as 1639663, they now exist in the new system, but when I create a new order in Order Entry, the numbers created are in sequence of my earlier test orders which I’ve deleted. In other words, I earlier entered and deleted five orders and Order Entry creates order 6, even with seven-digit order numbers already loaded into the system.Does anyone know where this sequence is being maintained, and how I can force an order into the system with a specific order number? Thanks much!
SSRS date field problem
Seem to be having a weird issue with material tag report and this only seems to happen for one user and with one part type only labels and nothing else. quite a hard one to try to fix because i cant replicate it.the top one should look like the bottom image, im hoping that the date reverting back to the begining would help some figure out the issue. cheers
Can I use Dashboard filters to set a dashboard to show only dates greater than 24 months ago? If so, how?

Loading Jobs via DMT (Old system to new system)
Can someone explain the process to migrate Jobs from your old system to your new system using the DMT? We have queries for Job Head - Part - Prod - Assmbl - Oper - Mtl which i have extracted from E9 and i am loading them into Kinetic but i feel i am missing something. What should you ensure about the jobs in the old system before transferring. Its been many years since i have done this and i am sure i am missing something. I guess i am after a Best Practice method of some sorts. Thanks.
Upgrade To Which Version?
Next month, Epicor 10.2.700 goes out of premium support. Which versions of Kinetic have you implemented live, that have given you functional issues? We’re staying with WinForms for now, so it’s not about the new interface for us, only about retaining functionality and introducing minimal software errors. Please share your recommendations on the K21 and K22 versions and what you’ve seen. Thanks much,..Monty.
Beginning Inventory Balances Day 1 of Prior Month
Does anyone know of a good way to determine the beginning inventory balances at the start of the prior month? I have not found where this would be stored in the tables, if at all.I have a request for data showing what the inventory balances were on day 1 of the prior month. (i.e. from today, it would be August 1st), to be run on any given day. We are using Epicor 10.2.500.13.
Heads UP! 2022.1.8 and a recurring MRP Issue
It seems that 2022.1.8 has (re)introduced an issue with MRP running and saying that the App server does not match in Kinetic and what is on the Server. We just upgraded to 2022.1.9 because of a fix with Lot selection on Inventory transactions and have done a provisional MRP test before we release the system for UAT and we are getting the following error - 15:01:23 Beginning of Update of PartPlant.PartRunMRP15:01:25 End of Update of PartPlant.PartRunMRP15:01:25 Starting sub-processes15:01:25 Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.15:01:25 -> Verify that the Appserver URL in the System Agent is the same as the URL in the Epicor Administration Console - Connection Properties15:01:25 Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.15:01:25 -> Verify that the Appserver URL in the System Agent is the same as the URL in the Epicor Administration Console - Connection Properties15:01:28 Scheduling Jobs...15:01:28 Erp.Internal.MR.MRPCancelledException: Cancelling
