SQL Script Linking Purchase Orders to Purchase Requisitions

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI have been doing a lot of work recently on Purchase Order Processing and Workflow 2.0. One of the requests I had was for a SmartList report which allowed the purchase order (PO) to be compared back to the purchase requisition (PR) it originated from. I had to take a few minutes to investigate as I knew the link from PR to PO was maintained within the system, but I wasn’t sure of the table.

It took me a little longer to determine which table held the link as I was expecting a company table, but instead found that the link was stored in the SOP_POPLink table (SOP60100). One fairly quick view later and I have the basis for the required report, and probably for some others in future too.

You Cannot Print An Unauthorized Purchase Order

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 0 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe below error message was reported to me by a user performing UAT (User Acceptance Testing) on an implementation of Purchase Order Processing and Workflow 2.0:

Microsoft Dynamics GP - You cannot print an unauthorized purchase order

Microsoft Dynamics GP

You cannot print an unauthorized purchase order

This error was somewhat surprising as it was produced when trying to print a purchase order (PO) which had been converted from a purchase requisition (PR). There was a workflow process on the PR, which had been final approved and the PO created, but there was not a workflow on the PO.

I double checked to make sure that the old Purchase Order Enhancements (POE) Approvals functionality was disabled (it was) as the customer had previously been using this.

It was when I was checking for POE Approvals, that I realised that, as part of the project, we had enabled the PO Commitments part of POE.

The warning message was being produced as the PO line had exceeded the commitment budget value. Loading the PO, clicking the save button, accepting the override of the commitment budget value, reloading the PO and clicking the Print button successfully printed the PO.

Purchase Order Approval Workflow Automatically Rejected

Microsoft Dynamics GPA client reported a problem with their PO Approval Workflow process failing whenever a PO was submitted for approval. As soon as the Submit button was pressed, the document was rejected, but did not show a user:

MS Connect Suggestion: Include Multicurrency Vouchers in Select Checks Window

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 1 Comment   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis suggestion is one from MVP Mariano Gomez to improve the payment run process by allowing multicurrency invoices to be included.

Currently, the payment selection process only allows vouchers issued in the batch currency to be selected and added to the check run. If the user wants to add foreign currency vouchers, he/she needs to use the Edit Checks window to add such vouchers. It would be nice to be able to have an option to include functional currency vouchers in the case of a foreign currency batch, or foreign currency vouchers in the case of a functional currency batch.

This is the use case:

Vendor A Invoice 1 CA$10.00
Vendor A Invoice 2 US$20.00
Vendor A Invoice 3 US$30.00

If a payment selection is performed and the batch currency is CA$, only the first voucher will be selected. To add Invoice 2 and 3, you would have to use the Edit Checks window to include both vouchers.

Conversely, if the batch currency is US$ and the payment selection for vendor A is performed, only invoices 2 and 3 would be selected and you would have to use the Edit Checks window to include Invoice 1.

What Mariano would like to see is all invoices selected (based on selection rules) and let the user deal with the exceptions, as it should be.

As mentioned, all the logic is already there via the Edit Checks window and it would be nice to incorporate as part of the payment selection process. As others have mentioned, having multicurrency vouchers included could be a payables configuration item or simply an additional option in the Select Payments (Select Checks) window.

Mark Polino has also suggested that this functionality be optioned with Rod O’Connor further suggesting the option be on the Select Checks window itself to allow maximum flexibility. Both of these seem like a good addition to Mariano’s idea.

The suggestion can be voted on here.

Nothing Happens When Submitting A Purchase Requisition For Approval

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 3 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI was onsite with a client to start a project implementing Workflow 2.0 for Purchase Requisition Approval and ran into a problem while doing training on how to interact with the workflow.

Everything had been fine until this point, but after creating a simple example approval workflow, I clicked the Submit button on the Purchase Requisition Entry window and nothing happened; I tried again through the navigation list, again without success.

I promised to figure out the issue in the next break and moved onto discussing other ways of interacting and then called the break.

It occurred to me that this might be another manifestation of an issue I have encountered previously, but without the visible error message.

I ran the script against the system database which redeploys the .NET Assemblies used by Workflow:

exec wfDeployClrAssemblies

It took a few minutes to run through, but I was then able to approve the requisition without further problem.

SQL Script To Update EFT Payment Register Report

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 2 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPPretty much every client we have of Microsoft Dynamics GP uses the EFT Payment Register Report; a number of the save the file instead of printing it as the report has been customised to generate the EFT payment file for upload to the bank.

The clients who do this are either those whose installations of Microsoft Dynamics GP predate version 10 when the EFT for Payables Management module was made available to the UK market or they implemented before the EFT File Format was enhanced to allow a CSV output.

While some clients have created or amended a file format since the above, not all of them have been willing to spend the time (or money) to make the change.

As such, when they copy live to test they need to amend the path to which the report is being output, to ensure that a live file is not accidentally overwritten.

To faciliate this for users who have automated the live to test restore I created a script they could build into the process:

UPDATE
	SY02200
SET
	FILEXPNM = 'C:\BACS OUTPUT\BACS.TXT'
WHERE
	PTGRPTNM = 'EFT Payment Register'

The highlighted section is the path name which needs to be changed depending on where the test file is to be output.

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2: POP To FA Link Includes Taxes

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 3 Comments   ● 

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 and also look at the new functionality introduced; the index for this series can be found here.

The thirteenth Feature of the Day I am going “hands on” with is POP to FA Link to Include Taxes.

This feature will be popular with some of our clients who deal with non-recoeverable VAT (VAT is a UK sales tax charged at a standard rate of 20%) as non-rec VAT means they would need to depreciate the gross value of the asset including VAT where in previous versions the asset would be created net and need to be amended.

To use this feature, the Include Tax in Acquisition Cost checkbox on the Fixed Assets Company Setup window (Financial >> Setup >> Fixed Assets >> Company) under the Purchasing Options:

Fixed Assets Company 	Setup

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2: Receivables & Payables Distribution Line Display UI Change

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 3 Comments   ● 

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 and also look at the new functionality introduced; the index for this series can be found here.

The feature I am going “hands on” with is the ninnth Feature of the Day, GL Distribution Line Display UI change.

The status of the scrolling window on the Payables or Distribution Zoom window are remembered:

As with the GL Distribution Line Display UI Change feature, the settings for this feature are stored in the SY01402 table (System User Defaults) in the system database, which is typically called DYNAMICS.

Again is closed and 1 is expanded; the Payables Management setting is where the syDefaultType column is equal to 107 and Receivables Management is 111.
