SME Custom Tabs and Fields allows a Button function. This will allow you to call ANY executable (exe) program to run providing tremendous customization power.

Here is how the button function works.

  • When the button is created, add the link to the exe file, for example c:\mypath\myexe in the 'Pick List'
  • User clicks the button within SME's custom tab
  • SME first checks to see if file exsits, then calls a system open.
  • SME appends the customrecord data UID and the moduleID, so it looks like c:\mypath\myexe uid moduleid
  • The UID is SME's unique identifier for the record from where the button was pushed.
  • The moduleID is the module that initiate the button call. So if the button is called from Customer module, the moduleID is 5. Below is the module ID table.
