  • 1.  UDBR code for all accounts

    Posted Mon July 06, 2020 09:49 AM

    Hi all, just want to know if someone knows how to filter all zero level accounts in a UDBR script.

    Unfortunatelly using the "getAccountsInSummation" is not an option, as I do not pretend to put summation accounts on the script.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Paul,

    Many thanks for your help, coding is not my speciallity but will ask my colleagues and try some scripts.

    The reason why I am trying UDBR is because there are some accounts here that sum up to a main and a statistical summation accounts.

    If I put both summation accounts on a Control Table, Controller eliminates twice, I am not sure if UDBR works this way too.

    Thank you.
