Diference between organizations with names and *

Postby daniel_kepler » Thu Apr 06, 2006 6:40 am

Hi, is a short question.
Why is the diference between the orgs. that have names like HQ or Store (like the client for test in Compiere) and the org. *?
I understand that * means some like "all", that has effect in all the client's orgs., but waht means "all" after all.
Thank for you help.
how to use Compiere?

This is subject matter stuff depending on your business practice. There is not much technical meaning.

The 'all' i think, is when u dont want a record to be under any particular organisation. U thus save that as a '*' or 0, i think again.

The '*' may also mean to show all orgs. Try it, cos i m not so sure, not seeing into the DB or source now. Cos i think (again) that during record creaton, it shuldnt save as '*' but default to HQ. This i believe (no more thinking) is more of the practice now in Compiere. Thus '*' is more for display purpose.
