Sage X3 – Comment utiliser ATEXTRA

What is ATEXTRA ?

ATEXTRA table exist since Adonix (1997) to store a part of translated text of the application.

The weak point of this method is the size limitation, specificaly the maximum lenght of the boxes.

It is not possible to store more than 80 characters for a box within this method.

You can find usage example in [M:ITM0] and [M:ITM1] screen.

Standard provides you 4 types of variable according to the lenght you need

AX1 = max 12 Character

AX2 = max 20 Character

AX3 = max 30 Character

AXX = max 80 Character, this type allow you to define the limit directly in the screen It is useless to input a lenght biger than 80 because you have a limitation in the ATEXTRA.src 4GL source code also and your text will be truncated

How does the system store the translated data in ATEXTRA table ?

CODFIC : Table concerned by the translation

ZONE : Name of the screen box

LANGUE : Translation language (FRA, ENG …)

LANORI : Original language (optional)

IDENT1 : 1st index

IDENT2 : 2nd index

TEXTE : Trsnalated text

The most important part are the index (IDENT1 + IDENT2), they are different for each table and they are the index that allow the system to retrieve the correct translation from the database.

For standard table already using ATEXTRA this index cannot be changed.

Example of usage for this identifier

GACCOUNT : Account (GESGAC)

IDENT1 = GACCOUNT.COA

IDENT2 = GACCOUNT.ACC

VATBOX : VAT Cases (GESVTB)

IDENT1 = VATBOX.VATFNC

IDENT2 = VATBOX.LEG + «~» + VATBOX.LIN

GTYPACCENT : Document type (GESGTE)

IDENT1 = GTYPACCENT.TYP

IDENT2 = GTYPACCENT.LEG

TABVACBPR : BP tax rule (GESTVB)

IDENT1 = TABVACBPR.VACBPR

IDENT2 = TABVACBPR.LEG

TABVACITM : Tax level (GESTVI)

IDENT1 = TABVACITM.VACITM

IDENT2 = TABVACITM.LEG

TABVAC : Tax determination (GESTVC)

IDENT1 = TABVAC.COD

IDENT2 = TABVAC.LEG

TABVAT : Tax rate (GESTVT)

IDENT1 = TABVAT.VAT

IDENT2 = TABVAT.LEG
