We are trying to call a Business Service via Workflow, to set the Primary Position on an Account.
We have tried the solutions suggested in SupportWeb, without success. We have tried an 'slimmed down' version of our script without success. For testing we are using an existing account where we have 2 positions on the sales team with SADMIN set as the primary.
The error we keep getting is:
This operation is not available for read only field 'SSA Primary Field'.(SBL-DAT-00402)
Here is the reduced code:
TheApplication().TraceOn("c:\\trace.txt", "Allocation", "All");
var boAcct = TheApplication().GetBusObject("Account");
var bcAcct = boAcct.GetBusComp("Account");
//Log parameters and prequery for required record.
TheApplication().Trace("ViewMode=" + bcAcct.GetViewMode());
bcAcct.SetSearchSpec("Id", "1-XZ9"); //Account id hardcoded for testing
TheApplication().Trace("Acct:" + bcAcct.GetFieldValue("Id"));
TheApplication().Trace("Current Position = " + TheApplication().PositionName());
//Get Sales Team
var bcMVG = bcAcct.GetMVGBusComp("Sales Rep");
bcMVG.ActivateField("SSA Primary Field", "Y");
var foundRecs = bcMVG.FirstRecord()
while (foundRecs )
if (bcMVG.GetFieldValue("Id")=="1-R2M") //Look for non-primary position (hardcoded for testing)
TheApplication().Trace("Found new primary - Setting Primary" );
bcMVG.SetFieldValue("SSA Primary Field", "Y");
TheApplication().Trace("Move on to next record");
foundRecs = bcMVG.NextRecord();
TheApplication().Trace("End of loop"...
