I am a bit behind in my blog efforts over every and each Cumulative update, but better late than never, right?
This update does not require database conversion from previous version, and there is no known security vulnerabilities fixed in this Platform version.
Cumulative update 17 for BC 14 was not very big one, but it held one really interesting change. Codeunit 451 Report Distribution Management has learned new tricks that centralize document captions.
BC14 CU17 Changed objects
This codeunit can be called from anywhere to get document captions for printouts and document exchange files.
Function "GetFullDocumentTypeText@7(DocumentVariant@1000 : Variant) DocumentTypeText : Text" returns correct document type text for printouts for all relevant document types varying from Sales/Purchase/Service Quote, order, invoice, credit memo, blanket orders to return documents and shipments. Jobs are also covered with Quote type of printout.This codeunit also returns correct language code for queried Header record.
Overall, this is great functionality that will make it a lot easier to unify document layouts and translations.
