The Dynamics GP Blogster’s best articles of 2009

December 29, 2009

Another years is gone by and as it’s customary around the last days of the year the media always seems to have some list with “The best this” or “The best that” of the outgoing year. I figured I won’t stay behind and, while by no stretch of the imagination I am some media conglomerate, I would join in with the best articles or series of articles published on this site during the 2009 year. Hope you enjoy the selection and chime in with the ones you believe were the best. So let’s get the ball rolling!

1. Sending emails with Collaboration Data Objects (CDO) and Dexterity (Jan 19). This article became a hit with the Dynamics GP development community and formed the base for the SMTP email capabilities built into the Support Debugging Tool.

2. Displaying Hijri dates in Microsoft Dynamics GP (Feb 19). What was once thought impossible — displaying Hijri dates — was accomplished with a couple lines of code. Now the Dynamics GP community in the Middle East is able to accomodate this simple script and use it on some of their reports.

3. Fargo Flooding (March series). Not every article was Dynamics GP technical or functional in nature. Many of us were very concerned about the well being of our friends in the plains and I believe I was able to communicate a bit of this during those tough times with the invaluable help of my friend Tom Irsfeld.

4. Modifier with VBA Workshop (March series). I believe this was the first time anyone has ever used a blog to deliver training content like this. Nonetheless, many of you had rave reviews about this workshop and expressed wanting to see more content like this delivered.

5. Are you a “Musgravion” follower? (Apr 17). Simple, if your not then we have a problem 🙂

6. Is there a maximum number of lines that can be inserted in any given scrolling window? (May 11). What started as a brain teaser was quickly embraced by many of you as a good article that clearly explained the role of line sequence numbers in scrolling window.

7. How does Check Links work? (Jun 18). This article was created based on numerous newsgroup questions asking about Microsoft Dynamics GP maintenance procedures and why check links removed records in the process.

8. Microsoft Dynamics GP in Russian – Microsoft Dynamics Г.П. на русском языке (Jul 28). Controversy? Excitement? You choose, but this article caught the attention of my Eastern European friends and everyone who was interested in knowing if it was even possible to see a Cyrilic version of GP. Being this a pet project, it has been placed on hold indefinitely.

9. Microsoft Dynamics GP v10 and supported virtualization platforms (Sep 21). The topic of virtualization eluded the Community for a while and I tried to provide some info and source where you could go for platform compatibility with Microsoft Dynamics GP. A start nonetheless!

10. Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference 2009 (Nov series). I really enjoyed my time at the Conference and well, most of you are still talking about it so here it is again.

I hope you enjoyed the selection and if you think I missed something just chime in with some of your best articles.

Until next post!

Happy Holidays!

December 24, 2009

Merry Christmas! Happy Hanukkah! Happy Kwanzaa! Happy Al-Hijira!

Best wishes throughout the Holiday season in company of your friends and family from The Dynamics GP Blogster. Once again, thanks for all your support and comments throughout the year and for confirming what I always knew: the more information you have, the better you can perform your job. That’s the objective of this blog and the reason I strive to deliver a variety of information and topics always revolving around Dynamics GP.

2010 will sure bring exciting stuff! We have the long awaited GP “11” release coming out, the new Microsoft Office 2010, incredible features being delivered in Microsoft SharePoint 2010, the new and spectacular, feature-rich Microsoft Visual Studio 2010, the promising Power Pivot, and last but not lease, the new Microsoft SQL Server 2010.

To accompany this array of applications and tools, we have spectacular events like Convergence, right in my backyard here in Atlanta. In addition, and as most of you already know, my first book will also be available around the August 2010 timeframe.

As you can see, all this should keep this humble author busy just as much as it will keep you coming back for more. Don’t forget to take advantage of other colleagues sites: MVP Mark Polino’s DynamicAccounting, MVP Frank Hamelly’s gp2TheMax, MVP Victoria Yudin’s Ramblings and Musings, MVP Leslie Vail’s Dynamics Confessor, David Musgrave’s Developing for Dynamics GP, and the list goes on and on (see the left pane of this site).

Folks, this time I take a hard swing at four common myths around the *beloved* Integration Manager. I know there are a lot of mixed feelings out there when it comes to poor IM, but this tool has saved my *ss in more than one occasion and in this article I make a case for its use in serious mission critical application integrations.

So head over to MSDynamicsWorld and read up! After reading the article, I would like to get your comments and experiences with IM.

MSDynamicsWorld releases Top 10 Microsoft Dynamics Stories of 2009

December 20, 2009

Fresh out of the oven is MSDynamicsWorld’s Top 10 Microsoft Dynamics Stories of 2009. I am honored to have one of the most read stories of this year with my article Four Microsoft Dynamics GP Project Team Blunders and How I Become a Hero. I have received numerous inquiries on the subject since the article was published and it’s safe to say the Microsoft Dynamics ecosystem is always looking to maximize its implementation dollars, while making sure projects will be delivered on time.

Once again, thank you for your support and readership, and please drop me a comment letting me know what stories you would like me to cover in 2010.

Until next post!

Hybrid – SOP Batch Splitting

December 20, 2009

Two weeks ago, I began working on a Microsoft CRM to Microsoft Dynamics GP integration project. Sales orders initiated in CRM and are transferred to GP once they are submitted in CRM. Once the orders got to GP they must be placed on automatic hold for document verification. However, once the hold was removed, the client wanted to be able to transfer all verified orders in bulk… so far good! The problem though was, when orders were transferred to invoices, the invoices remained mixed with the orders that did not get transferred in the same batch. This presented a control issue for the client as the staff performing the documentation is not the same staff transferring the orders.

Last year I posted the article Moving SOP Transactions from One Batch to Another. This article demonstrated a SQL script that would allow a database administrator to move SOP documents from one batch to another. The script in that article forms the basis for this customization. However, to make it more user friendly, I decided to provide the client with a way of running it from the Microsoft Dynamics GP interface by adding a Split button with Modifier to the SOP Batch Entry window. The following is a modified version of the SOP Batch Entry window with the Split button.


The Split button in turn, prompts the user for a new batch that will host the invoices. Upon entering the new batch number, the VBA script instantiates the UserInfo object to create an ADO connection. The connection executes a stored procedure to move the invoices into the batch entered by the user.


While the customization has been designed specifically to move invoices into a new batch, it can be adapted to move same SOP document types out of a batch containing other SOP document types.
