Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post relates to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Beta; if you’re installing the RTM of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 please read this post instead.

Well, with the beta of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 being released, I couldn’t resist. I got a friend to download it for me so I didn’t have to wait for tomorrow morning when I got to work.

Yes, I’m a geek. Yes, I’ sad. Yes, I need a life. I’ve heard it all tonight. I don’t care; a fresh bottle of Glenkinchie is accompanied by GP 2013 🙂

How To Install Connector for Microsoft Dynamics GP – Preparing Data for Integration

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis is the fifth post in the series on how to install the Connector for Microsoft Dynamics GP; the first four posts covered the prerequisites, installation, adapter configuration and creating a new integration.

In this post, I’m going to highlight an issue which bit me when I was creating this series of posts using the Fabrikam, Inc. demo company.
