I did a SQL Script back in October 2014 which allowed Vendor EFT Details to be inserted, but, if the client is going to run it themselves, requires the assistance of the IT Department as end users don’t usually have access to SQL Server Management Studio.
For most clients, this hasn’t usually been a problem, but a number of the clients I have worked with recently have had multiple projects on the go at the same time. This has meant that while an IT representative can be available, it isn;t usually very timely and can delay UAT.
As such, I wrote some VBA script for Integration Manager which inserts both the Vendor Email and EFT Details. Continue reading → VBA for Integration Manager to Insert Vendor EFT Bank And Email Addresses
This particular integration is an Account one, which has been extended with VB Script which checks to see if the segments exist, and if not, it inserts them. When a user tried to run the integration, they get the following error:
Opening source query... Establishing source record count... Beginning integration... DOC 1 ERROR: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: Cannot open database "GPLIV" requested by the login. The login failed. DOC 2 ERROR: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: Cannot open database "GPLIV" requested by the login. The login failed. DOC 3 ERROR: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlError: Cannot open database "GPLIV" requested by the login. The login failed. Integration Failed Integration Results 3 documents were read from the source query. 3 documents were attempted: 0 integrated without warnings. 0 integrated with warnings. 3 failed to integrate.
I did some double checking and it turned out that the user who was doing the testing had two Domain accounts (one with full name and one with initial and surname) and were not using the one I had configured originally.
All of the other users I had worked with had been using Domain accounts of initial and surname, which was the one I had configured, but this particular user was using the account with their full name.
Adding this Domain user account to the database with the DYNGRP role resolved the problem.

I’m posting it here so I don’t lose it for when I remember why I write it, and perhaps it may be useful to others.
We have a client who will be loading payables transactions into Microsoft Dynamics GP and need secondary postings created into the General Ledgers of other company databases. The idea is to use the AfterDocument script to create and submit an eConnect document, which is in XML format.
The below code is a small proof of concept which creates an XML file with child and parent nodes and saves it to the T:\:

Once Integration Manager has been installed there is a final admin step which is required. Before it can be used, it needs to be run as an admin (to prevent errors) and the registration keys entered.
Find Integration Manager on the Windows start menu, right click and Run as Administrator:
Now that we have eConnect is installed we can move onto installing Integration Manager. Do this by starting the setup utility and then under Additional products click Integration Manager:
Microsoft Dynamics GP comes with a number of different integration tools such as eConnect and Integration Manager. In this post, I’m going to step through the installation of eConnect so that the eConnect adaptor will be available to Integration Manager.
To install eConnect, launch the setup utility, under Additional products select eConnect:
DOC 68 ERROR: eConnect error - The source was not found, but some or all event logs could not be searched. To create the source, you need permission to read all event logs to make sure that the new source name is unique. Inaccessible logs: Security.
The problem was a fairly simple one in that the eConnect service account did not have the necessary permissions; a very similar issue to the one I blogged about in March 2013.
The solution is to add the service account to the Local Admins group; instructions are in the post I linked above.
One of Perfect Image’s clients is merging with another organisation and I’ve been onsite a few times to help them configure the new companies and import data. One of the items on my list was to use Integration Manager to import the new chart of accounts. While doing this I used VBA to extend the integration to map between the chart of accounts in the new system to the new format and numbering wanted in Microsoft Dynamics GP.
It was when I came to test the integration with the mapping active that I encountered my problem:
ERROR: Error Executing Script 'Before Integration' Line 17: - Object required: 'gpObj' Error Executing Script 'Before Integration' Line 17: - Object required: 'gpObj' Object required: 'gpObj' Integration Failed Integration Results 0 documents were read from the source query. 0 documents were attempted: 0 integrated without warnings. 0 integrated with warnings. 0 failed to integrate.
I was recently creating an integration for a client to load some Purchase Orders into Microsoft Dynamics GP using Integration Manager. I added the source and destination adapters and then did the destination mapping. However, when I tried to run the integration I got the following error message:
DOC 1 ERROR: There was no endpoint listening at net.pipe://localhost/Microsoft/Dynamics/GP/eConnect/EntityOperations that could accept the message. This is often caused by an incorrect address or SOAP action. See InnterException, if present, for more details.
