Catalog: VismaNet

Schema: Account

Label: General Ledger Account by Code

The data in this table is partitioned per value of the COMPANY_CODE column.

This is a read-only table function. The Financials API may not support changing the data or the Invantive SQL driver for Financials does not cover it. In the latter case, please use the table NativePlatformScalarRequests to upload data to the Financials API.

Parameters of Table Function

The following parameters can be used to control the behaviour of the table function AccountByCode. A value must be provided at all times for required parameters, but optional parameters in general do not need to have a value and the execution will default to a pre-defined behaviour. Values can be specified by position and by name. In both cases, all parameters not specified will be evaluated using their default values.

Value specification by position is done by listing all values from the first to the last needed value. For example: a `select * from table(value1, value2, value3)` on a table with four parameters will use the default value for the fourth parameter and the specified values for the first three.

Value specification by name is done by listing all values that require a value. For example with `select * from table(name1 => value1, name3 => value3)` on the same table will use the default values for the second and fourth parameters and the specified values for the first and third.
