DimensionElementInsertByAlias

Post by Wim Gielis » Wed Sep 22, 2021 7:07 pm

Hi all,

I know this function is undocumented. Still a bit curious about the usage and parameters.

This code works and inserts an element called 'Hotel costs' into the dimension:

Code: Select all

DimensionElementInsertByAlias( 'PL_Account', '', 'test', 'Hotel costs', 'N' );
However, the 3rd argument should not be empty. The process does not throw an error but nothing happens in that case.

No idea where the alias part comes in.

I started dabbling around with this function, hoping it would have some link to this topic: viewtopic.php?f=3&t=15994

If anyone has found more about this function, please post :D
Best regards,
