SmartList Builder Will Be Disabled Until It Is Initialized By The System Administrator

Microsoft Dynamics GPI have been involved in several upgrade projects with clients recently where we have been upgrading them from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 through to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013. Since this version was launched, SmartList Builder has been pushed back out to eOne, the original ISV.

So, after doing the normal upgrade process, we have then installed the latest version of SmartList Builder from the eOne website. However, this has not been a smooth process.

One of the clients started receiving the following error message whenever a user tried to access SmartList:

Integration Manager Bank Transaction – Unimplemented Cast From Btype ‘BROWSETYPE_UNKNOWN’

I’ve been configuring an integration in Integration Manager for a client recently to assist with an Intercompany Bank Reconciliation process. When we started discussing the integration I had taken a quick look at the sample Bank Transaction integration which ships with Integration Manager and had no problem.

As the project progressed and I created the Bank Transaction integration on the client’s server I encountered the below error:

I fiddled around without being able to identify a cause of the problem and, while I was doing this, found that the 37 transactions in the file had actually integrated despite the error message (an error in IM usually means the transaction or line will not be successfully integrated).

I brought a copy of the Integration Manager back to my test system and ran it on there and all of the files integrated without error.

The difference between my test system and the client’s system is that I have Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Service Pack 2 while the client is still on Service Pack 1.

In the medium term we will be upgrading the clients system to service pack 2, but in the meantime we’ll need to make do with increasing the number of permitted errors and accepting that an error will be displayed even as the transaction is integrated.

File Not Found: VBA6.DLL

While VBA is falling out of favour with Microsoft Dynamics GP (by dint of not being supported in the web client) it is still useful for those clients who do not use, and have no intention of using, the web client.

One such client was recently installing some new XenAPp servers using Windows Server 2012; when they tried to open a window with a VBA customisation they received the following error:

File Not Found: VBA6.DLLFile Not Found: VBA6.DLL

Fortunately, Beth Gardner posted the answer to the Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

Cashbook Bank Management – Value Exists In The PM_Key_MSTR Table

A client had an odd error with the Cashbook Bank Management module the other day when trying to enter a deposit; the following was printed on the exception report when trying to post the transaction:

Value exists in the PM_Key_MSTR table

I did some digging around and found that the Next Voucher Number field in Payables Management Setup – Options (Microsoft Dynamics GP menu >> Tools >> Setup >> Purchasing >> Payables Setup) was blank.

I set a new value in the Next Voucher Number field and the deposit could be posted without problem.

After logging into the Web Management Console the following error was displayed:

Troubleshooting The Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Web Client: Target Principle Name Is Incorrect

As errors with a scale-out deployment of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client go, the one covered in this post is not one that you are likely to encounter.

When I tried logging into the web client I received an unexpected error and went to the Windows Event Viewer on the Session Central for more details:

Management Reporter Period 13 Is Not Valid For Company

This is an issue I came across a few months ago and misplaced my screenshots. Having just stumbled across them on my test Hyper-V server I decided it is still worth posting about.

I was doing some testing on a system with multiple companies created and was looking at a report consolidating figures from all of them into one report. When the report was generated it failed and gave the error message below for several of the companies in the Report Queue Status window:

Period 13 for fiscal year 2013 is not valid for company <company name>. No data will be returned for this company.
Period 13 for fiscal year 2013 is not valid for company <company name>. No data will be returned for this company.

I checked the Fiscal Period Setup in Microsoft Dynamics GP for all reported companies and all of them had the same period 13 defined. Management Reporter, as well as reporting errors in the Report Queue Status window, logs errors in the Windows Event Viewer.
