The client has a few modified reports on the system which needed to be brought across to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010. These reports were exported from Customisation Maintenance (Microsoft Dynamics GP menu » Tools » Customise » Customisation Maintenance);
One of the reports includes VBA so my first thought was that this problem would need the VBA fix but then I realised the VBA was not used in the check remittance but in the Computer Checks Posting Journal.
That particular problem dodged, I attempted to load the modified reports into the new GP 2010 R2 system. However, I received the following error message;
Hit OK and received this follow up message;
My first thought was to wonder if another user had run GP on the same server and locked the VAB and modified reports files before realise that was a silly thought; the machine I was working on was a brand new server which no users had access to.
Then I realised what the issue was bound to be; I’ve been using computers for a long time and am still trying to adjust to Windows UAC (User Account Control). This adjustment is taking me longer than I’d like but I think it’s down to using a variety of systems, from XP to Server 2003 and through Vista and Server 2008 to 7 and Server 2008 R2, with different settings; even thought UAC is part of Server 2008 and 2008 R2, and their related client versions, UAC is not enabled on all of the machines I use.
The solution, however, is quite simple;
Once I started GP using Run as Administrator, I was able to load the modified reports in without any further problems.
