MDGP 2013 Feature of the Day: Shipping Address Overrides Remain In Service Call

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft are posting the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day series on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Blog.

The sixty first feature they've announced is Shipping Address Overrides Remain In Service Call.

When you override the shipping address on a part line with a miscellaneous address ID, that shipping address is used throughout the service call process for that part. A tax schedule ID is added to the Misc. Address Maintenance window, so that when that shipping address override is used on the part, the tax schedule assigned to the address is used to calculate the tax on the invoice in Sales Order Processing.

VBA Customisation To Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Login Window To Display Desktop Alert If Caps Lock On

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn 2009 Patrick Roth, on the Developing for Dynamics GP blog, posted a customisation for the Microsoft Dynamics GP login window which displays a message box if the caps lock is on when the user goes to enter their password.

Then, back in July, Aaron Berquist on his blog High Dynamic Range, posted an article on using VBA to create a desktop alert to users which doesn't take focus away from the application.

I decided to take a look and see if I could combine these two ideas into one and have a desktop alert displayed when the user has caps lock on when logging in, which is far less intrusive than the message box approach by Patrick.

The result is a customisation of the login window (which you can download at the end of the post) to display an alert if the user has the Caps Lock on using the desktop alert code Aaron posted.

The code displays a message to the user if they have Caps Lock on when the login window displays, or when they tab into the Password field if they haven't already seen the message;

Desktop Alert

The customisation was created in GP 2013 and has only been tested in this version of GP but has been tested on Windows Server 2008 R2 and Windows 8. As with everything I post here, it is supplied entirely without warranty and you use it at your own risk.

However, if you do have problems let me know and I'll see what I can do to fix them.

MDGP 2013 Feature of the Day: RMA Sales Order Consolidate

Microsoft Dynamics GPMicrosoft are posting the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Feature of the Day series on the Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP Blog.

The fifty ninth feature they've announced is RMA Sales Order Consolidate.

In Dynamics GP, the creation of the cross ship order is per RMA line. If there are multiple lines on an RMA, each line generates a new SOP order.

Now with Dynamics GP 2013, you can optionally consolidate multiple cross shipped lines on an RMA onto a single SOP order document. As long as the SOP order is open, any additional lines cross shipped for that same RMA will be added to the same sales order.
