Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2: Install Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2018 R2 was released on the 2nd October. In this series of posts, I’ll be going hands on and installing the majority of the components; some of them, such as Analysis Cubes for Excel, which are little used, I won’t be covering.

The series index will automatically update as posts go-live in this series.

The Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word was introduced with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 to allow the Word templates to be amended by adding additional fields (changes to relocate or remove fields do not require the add-in).

It is a nice simple install which is only needed on computers used by the people who maintain the Word templates. To install it, launch the setup utility and, under the Additional Products heading, select Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word:

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2: Install GP Add-in For Microsoft Word

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2 was released at the end of May. As I mentioned at the time, I was away from home for work and rather busy otherwise so this series of posts has been somewhat delayed.

However, I am now getting my hands on GP 2015 R2 and thought I would do my usual set of posts on the installation of the various components and also the usage of the new functionality. This is going to be quite a long series of posts, so keep checking back regularly.

When using the Word Templates to replace the standard reports for printing reports such as invoices, remittances or purchase orders you can do changes to the format or layout using the standard functionality of Microsoft Word.

However, if you want to add additional fields then you need to install the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word. Do this by launching the Microsoft Dynamics GP setup utility from the downloaded installation media and, under Additional Products, click on Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word:
