CRM 2013 - Extended Amount Field on opportunity product screen RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    We have upgraded our crm 4.0 to crm 2011 and then to crm 2013. We have javascript customizations available in which we are updating "extendedamount" field at opportunity product level. But now I observed in CRM 2013, extended amount gets calculated automatically and my javascript code is not making sense. Is there any workaround so my javascript will work and I can override inbuit functionality as a quick fix?

  • The main documentation is whether a field is ValidForUpdate or ValidForCreate, which you can find through the Metadata Browser . Any field where these are false are system calculated.

    I don't think I've ever seen documentation of exactly what goes into each calculation

  • It's definitely not supported to update the "extendedamount" field directly, and I don't think it is possible, since CRM 2011. Your better options would be to update the fields that go into the extendedamount calculation, or to use custom fields and write your own logic to calcualte them , and to sum values up to the opportunity

  • Ok. Thanks for your reply.

    Are there any other fields which are behaving same as extendedamount field in latest versions of crm?

    Where can I find the fields that go into the extendedamount calculation. I mean how can I know which fields are used by CRM inbuilt?
