E1: 42: User Reserved Fields Not Saved in the Same Session When Changing Multiple Times in P42101 (Sales Order Entry Powerform) (Doc ID 2882721.1)

Last updated on JULY 14, 2022

Applies to:

JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Sales Order Management - Version 9.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


Changes to the values in User Reserved Fields are not saved during initial order entry in P42101 sales order entry form.

There is a need to use the user reserved fields of F4211 (Sales Order Detail) to store additional information important for the business.
The user reserved fields URAT (User Reserved Amount) and URAB (User Reserved Number) can be added to the grid, entered and are also saved when done so.
This is also mentioned and specified in “E1: 42: Additional Columns Added in the Grid on Sales Order Entry (P42101) (Doc ID 2241700.1)”.

However, when changing the fields in the same session, the fields are getting the old values again.
Enter a new sales order line, where the fields have been made visible, enter a value in URAT of 10, exit the order line by going to next line (tab down), go back in the line and change UART to 30, after exiting the order line, the URAT field displays the old value of 10 again.


  1. Make fields available via FDA (Form Design Aid). For more details on FDA, please see Information Center: Form Design Aid (FDA) in the JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Tools and Technology Product (Doc ID 1394887.2).
  2. P42101 Enter an order line and enter value of URAT=10.
  3. Change the field URAT to 20.
  4. Leave the row by going to the next line and notice User amount is set back by the system to 10. This is incorrect.
  5. Now save the order, open order again and change the URAT to 30. Now when leaving the order line, the value is correct.
