Wow, taking advantage of a small featured yielded me great benefits!
OK, we all use the sort option in lookups for GL Accounts, going back in forth between account numbers and account descriptions. What if we could sort by another important option? You can…
AND IT’S EASY TO SET, how great is that?
Go To Tools – Setup – Company – Advanced Lookups
Select the list you want to add a custom lookup feature to. Choose from the drop-down list into the soft field (change the description name if you want) save and you’re done.
The next time you are in the that look up window, click additional sorts and now you can sort by your new custom window.
