    Is there a way to locate the field length for any field on any Lawson form?

    I'm looking specifically for the Vendor name in PO25.6, however it would be helpful if there was a way to find the length of any field on any form.

    Hi Bev,

    Not sure if this is universal, but if I have my cursor selected in a field and hold CTRL Shift and the letter "O", I will get a box that shows the details of that particular field. One detail in the box is size which to my understanding is the max character length.

    We are on an older version of Lawson. We use the same CTRL Shift and the letter "O", but our information shows on the status bar at the bottom.

    Ctrl+Shift+O is the default for Lawson.  If your organization messed with the hotkeys - you'll need to go to Help -- Hotkeys and scroll down to find 'Display Field Information'


    In anything on Landmark - GHR/CloudSuite/IPA - it's Ctrl+Shift+LeftClick and then a popup for Field information appears.
