Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 RTM: Installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word

Microsoft Dynamics GPNow that Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 RTM is available, I thought I could follow my usual pattern of posting a series of posts on how to install and configure both Dynamics GP, but also the additional products which ship with it. You can find the series index for these posts here.

One of the very useful additions in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 was the ability to create invoice, remittance and other types of documents in a Word Template rather than having to do it all in Report Writer (although Report Writer is still needed if you want to create a custom field or make other fields available to the Word Template). While much of the editing and changing of formatting can be done using Word as is, if you want to add any new fields then the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word is required on any machine which will be used for doing this.

To install the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word open the setup.exe from the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 installation media and, under Additional Products, select Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word:

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015

Accept the License Agreement and click Next:
