which are int and string but the data is same

Hi @FarhanaM60 

I faced the same issue before and did a workaround to resolve the issue. Please review the below code sample


 foreach (CSAttributeGroup item in PXSelectReadonly<CSAttributeGroup, 
                        Where<CSAttributeGroup.attributeID, Equal<Required<CSAttributeGroup.attributeID>>, 
                        And<CSAttributeGroup.entityType, Equal<Required<CSAttributeGroup.entityType>>>>>.Select(this,”AttributeID”, "PX.Objects.IN.InventoryItem"))

 INItemClass itemClass = PXSelectReadonly<INItemClass, Where<INItemClass.itemClassID, Equal<Required<INItemClass.itemClassID>>>>.Select(this,Convert.ToInt32(item.EntityClassID));
                        if (itemClass != null)
                            // Write your logic

HI @FarhanaM60  I don’t think that is possible to convert the data type in the BQL Query of VIEW.


You can achieve this alternative way. Please find the details below.

  1. Create a SQL View for the above query.
  2. Create a DAC for this SQL View(this will be treated a table in Acumatica)
  3. Provide the Key fields in DAC
  4. By using this DAC, you can define a VIEW in your graph.


Hope this helps!!

Hi @FarhanaM60 ,

As @jinin  mentioned place that logic in View delegate.

Another approach is creating projection DAC.Please go through below link for sample with this approach.
