Upgrading to Jet 2019: Series Index

Jet Global Data TechnologiesBack in April I did a series of posts on implementing the various products from Jet Globaal Data technologies (or Jet Reports as they then were before their re-branding).

Jet Global have recently launched new versions of their products and I thought a short series on upgrading might be useful. This post is the series index, and will automatically update as the posts go live (if you’re reading this on a syndicated post, make sure you check back to the original as only that will update).

In this series I will be upgrading both Jet Analytics (formerly Jet Enterprise) and Jet Reports (formerly Jet Professional).

Implementing Jet Professional: Deploying Jet Views

Jet ReportsThis post is part of a series of posts on implementing Jet Reports and is part of the Jet Professional sub-series. I’m a little late in posting this one, as I forgot to include it with the original series when I posted it.

Jet Professional provides a number of database views which can be used to simplify reporting, rather than using the Microsoft Dynamics GP tables (the structure of which can be confusing to many users of Dynamics GP.

However, the views are not deployed automatically, but need to be deployed after the first client has been installed. To deploy the views, log into Microsoft Dynamics GP and then start the Jet GP Updater which is in the Jet Reports installation folder:

Windows Explorer

Implementing Jet Enterprise: Series Index

Jet ReportsThis post is part of a series of posts on Jet Reports. As I said in the series index for the overall series on Implementing jet Reports, I am doing sub-series for each of the versions of Jet Reports.

This is the series index for implementing Jet Professional which is the top tier of the software and suitable for businesses with more complex financial and non-financial reporting requirements. It also allows the creation of dashboards and plugging in of other software into the cubes for reporting; this includes PowerBI and other BI software.

Management Reporter 2012 CU15 Is Now Available

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP has announced the availability of CU15 for Management Reporter 2012. This cumulative up-date contains a few bug fixes as well as some enhancements.

Here’s a summary of the new Management Reporter CU15 features:

  • Improved responsiveness in the Web Viewer.
  • A search bar has been added to search through the current level of the report as in-browser search functions may not always return all results because of the performance changes to improve responsiveness.
  • Printing in the Web Viewer through XPS download.
  • PowerShell module to enable reset of data mart.
  • Added a Turkish (tr-tr) localization.
  • Additional fixes for product defects.

The Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP team will be blogging about the new features in detail soon.

There are a few new prerequisites which are required for this cumulative update:

  • SQL Server 2012 or higher.
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 is also required (when installed this may require a reboot).

Management Reporter CU15 Release is version 2.12.15000.56; make sure your ERP version is supported by checking the compatibility list.

The EN-US download for Management Reporter CU15 is here and localised versions will be coming soon.

General Ledger Summary Trial Balance Returning Incorrect Data

Microsoft Dynamics GPWe are currently in the process of upgrading a large 20 site client from Microsoft Dynamics GP 9 to a later version (unfortunately not 2015 due to third party add-ons which are not supported on this version). The client previously had standalone implementations at each site, but we are aggregating them into one implementation for ease of maintenance and also to reduce licensing costs.

The first few we centralised went fine, but we then ran into problems when we did the head office companies. When they ran the GL Summary TB on the old and new systems there was a mismatch between them.

After investigating, the support team established that the problem was down to some corruption in the Account Index Master table (GL00105) where some of the accounts had segments separated with dots instead of dashes as defined in Account Format Setup (Administration area page » Setup » Company » Account Format).

The solution they followed was fairly simple, and in three steps:

  1. Run a script to clear the Account Index Master table:
    DELETE FROM GL00105
  2. Run Check Links (Microsoft Dynamics GP menu » Maintenance » Check Links) on Account Master.
  3. Run the General Ledger Reconcile utility (Financials area page » Utilities » Reconcile) on all years starting with the oldest and working forward.

After this was done, the report produced from the upgraded system matched the old one.

MDGP 2015 Feature of the Day: Management Reporter Data Integration

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series of posts on the new features of, the soon to be released, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015. As I have done for the last two releases, I intend to shadow these posts and add my own opinions on these new feature; the series index is here.

The thirty third Feature of the Day is Management Reporter Data Integration. In Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, the user can determine the data that is available to the Microsoft Dynamics Management Reporter DataMart, improving the performance and giving the user control over the data selected.

The user can choose per company (including sample company) if they want the General Ledger data available for reporting.

The user also has the ability to include or exclude Analytical Accounting data for each company:

Company Setup Options

I am slightly puzzled by this feature of the day as you can simply not import a company into Management Reporter if you don;t want to report on it. While I steer clients away from AA where possible, I am not entirely opposed to it, but I do wonder who would want to report on AA without also wanting to be able to report on the GL.

The roles targeted by this feature are:

  • All
