Create a DAC Schema Browser

Every major ERP software product has a schema browser. Acumatica should have one too (for the Data Access Classes).

    Just saw Dominic's comment. Maybe Vladimir can comment, I think it was created during an internal Acumatica Hackathon.

    Want to say that I've added new feature in my DAC Schema browser is button GET TABLES. For now, if somebody want's to see which tables has some column by particular name, they can do it with button GET TABLES on the form AT102000

    I just noticed this new thing in Acumatica 2019 R2!

    It's still missing Primary Keys, but it's a start.

    You don't actually need a 2019 R2 environment because the help is available outside of Acumatica:

    Absolutely!!!!  Would make reports & GI so much easier.

    even nicer if you can select any data field in the form to see origin of information.

    The video you shared on 8 March looks really interesting - do you have any more info on this and when we could use it ?

    This looks to me like a great step in the direction of having a schema. Quite colorful too:

    Here is the video:

    This should not just be for partners. There are a lot of customers with IT departments as well that would benefit greatly from this. I would assume this would reduce Acumatica support tickets as well - I know I've opened a few requesting guidance on this.

    It would simplify things to have this.

    Yes – a list of forms would be great! Form #s and names.

    Also, if the field presents a selection list please identify the available selections (i.e. the Sales Order Type field)
