There are a lot of switches available which can be added to the Dex.ini file; Leslie Vail did a post back in February 2014 where she listed all of the switches she knows (and a long list it is too).
I need to have a proper through Leslie’s list again soon as there are some very useful switches. Two that caught my eye recently, which are on Leslie’s list, were actually posted by Béat Bucher on the Dynamics Community Forum (I was searching for something else when I found the post):
SQLLastDataSource=Dynamics GP EnableServerDropDown=FALSE
These switches set the last DSN used and then disable the Server drop down to stop users changing it. This is useful when there are several DNSs created on the client machine (required for other applications), but only one of them is for Dynamics GP.
To run this script change the highlighted section to the name of the budget which needs the password reset:
UPDATE GL00200 SET BUDPWRD = 0x00202020202020202020202020202020 WHERE BUDGETID = 'budget id' GO
A very similar script can be used to reset the System Password. If you are using a Named System Database, change the highlighted DYNAMICS text to the name of your System Database:
USE DYNAMICS GO UPDATE SY02400 SET Password = 0X00202020202020202020202020202020 GO
The recently launched Dynamics 101 training site has announced their first annual list of Top 25 Dynamics GP Sites.

If you’re a regular visitor to my blog, you’ll be aware that I have been doing a detailed review of Leslie Vail’s book Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications;
I sometimes feel that in my reviews I may be coming across too critical. If so, I apologise because I actually think the book is really good and I have a lot of respect for Leslie and her contributions to the Dynamics community.
There are many people who contribute to the Microsoft Dynamics community during the year. As this blog is focussed on Microsoft Dynamics GP there are a number of outstanding people as contenders for entry on the Top 100 Most Influential People in Microsoft Dynamics 2013 list which is at the voting stage.
I’ve taken a look at the list and read the clarion calls from Mark Polino, Leslie Vail and Jivtesh Singh to vote for David Musgrave (the man behind Developing for Dynamics GP and the incredibly useful Support Debugging Tool). I have done so and would encourage other people to consider casting your vote for him as well; he can be found on page 4.
I have many other outside work items competing for my time at the moment which, combined with being busy at work is leaving me little time for reviewing. To that end I’m snatching an hour while sat at a hotel in the Midlands (South Yorkshire to be exact) to add another part to my review of Leslie Vail’s book Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications published in October by Packt Publishing;
I started reviewing Leslie Vail’s book, Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications, which was published at the end of December by Packt Publishing, a few weeks ago. To do this review I decided to take a read through and complete all the examples she gives on developing an application as I’ve only had very limited experience with Dexterity;
Today, it is time for part 5 of my review where I look at Chapter 6: Deploying a Dexterity Solution where Leslie covers the following key topics:
- System requirements
- Versions and builds
- Table creation routines
- Completing the application
- Creating the chunk file
- Testing in a multi-dictionary environment
- Distributing the completed application
This chapter has a fair bit of explanatory text covering each of the key topics.

Today I’m taking a look at Chapter 5 which covers sanScript and how to add it to windows to enable the required functionality. The key topics to be covered are:
- Introduction to sanScript
- Scrolling Windows

Thanks again to those who entered.
After slacking off a lot in terms of reviewing Leslie Vail’s book Developing Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Applications, which was published at the end of December by Packt Publishing, I’m going to try to get a regular tempo of review posts going. Today I’m here with the review for chapter 4;
This chapter is all about Building the User Interface which Leslie does by getting the reader to build an interface for customer contacts integration and covers:
- Creating base resources
- Creating tables and keys
- Creating forms and windows
- Creating scrolling windows
- Working with window fields
- Completing your windows
So from this chapter I expect to get a good grounding in creating an entirely new window which should look like this:
