I upgraded a customer to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 a couple of weeks ago and they have started to explore some of the new features. After fixing their payment run problem they enabled the new functionality for emailing remittances. Continue reading → Not Privileged To Run this Report Error in Payables Select Checks
Again this is not a new feature but, in my experience, is one that is not commonly used. One of the options available on the Account Maintenance window (Cards ¯ Financial ¯ Account) is Allow Account Entry. Unchecked, account codes can only be defaulted in by the system but when checked this option allows users to select the account anywhere in the system.

David Musgrave has released an update to build 15 of his Support Debugging Tool. Full details of the changes are available on the Developing for Microsoft Dynamics GP blog.
There are two updates available;
Slightly off topic posting today, but I work with several camera aficionado’s so this news story came to my attention this morning. Microsoft have released a Microsoft Camera Codec Pack for Windows 7 and Windows Vista which allows direct handling of raw files within Windows. Previously this required third part programs from the camera makers as each of them has a slightly different, largely undocumented, raw format.
For those not in the know, raw is an image format of uncompressed, minimally processed, data from the image sensor of a digital camera (raw is popular with DSLR cameras). The file is of a higher quality with more image information and allows for finer control than other image formats such as JPEG.
Microsoft Dynamics GP does not support Windows Authentication but in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 a new option has been added to allow the user’s username and password to be remembered for when they login. This isn’t as good as Windows Auth as the password does not have rules enforced by Active Directory but can make logging in easier for users.

In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, several enhancements have been made to the Select Cheques window in Payables Management to add flexibility and allow more control over the building of the payment batch; a feature which has proven popular with the clients who have seen it.

Good news to end the week on. I’ve just returned home from the Prometric test centre with a brand new Microsoft Dynamics GP certification to add to my existing two.
When you install Microsoft Dynamics GP it automatically creates a recurring reminder for the Microsoft Customer Experience Improvement Program. In most cases this reminder is not wanted but removing it through the system for every user can be a bit time consuming;
For each user, log into Microsoft Dynamics GP and open the Reminders window (Microsoft Dynamics GP menu ¯ Reminders) and open the CEIP task. In the window click Name and select an option. Flag the task as Completed and move onto the next user and repeat.
However, help is at hand in with two short SQL scripts. Continue reading → How To Remove The CEIP Reminder
Les Wright on the Microsoft Dynamics Corporate Performance Management, Management Reporter & BI Blogger site has posted a list of the Management Reporter versions and their release dates.
Of most interest is the release of the latest service pack (which we posted details of here) and the upcoming Feature Pack 2 for Management Reporter 2 which, as Les says, is expected during December 2011.
I believe among other new features is the ability to both schedule and email reports and also a drill-down facility to the GP General Ledger.
A customer recently logged a problem about an error message they were receiving when logging into Microsoft Dynamics GP. The error message was being produced to every user every time they logged in;
