Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Installing the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word

Microsoft Dynamics GPAs of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010, Word Templates were introduced as an alternative to the standard reports. The Word templates offer an easier way to format the documents produced from Dynamics GP, such as sales invoices and check remittances. When a new field needs to be added to a Word template, it first needs to be added in Report Writer and then the Word template modified.

To add the field in Word, the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word needs to be installed. To install it, launch the setup.exe from the download media and select Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-in for Microsoft Word:

Management Reporter 2012 CU15 Is Now Available

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP has announced the availability of CU15 for Management Reporter 2012. This cumulative up-date contains a few bug fixes as well as some enhancements.

Here’s a summary of the new Management Reporter CU15 features:

  • PowerShell module to enable reset of data mart.
  • Added a Turkish (tr-tr) localization.
  • Additional fixes for product defects.

The Dynamics Financial Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP team will be blogging about the new features in detail soon.

There are a few new prerequisites which are required for this cumulative update:

  • SQL Server 2012 or higher.
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 4.6.1 is also required (when installed this may require a reboot).

Management Reporter CU15 Release is version 2.12.15000.56; make sure your ERP version is supported by checking the compatibility list.

The EN-US download for Management Reporter CU15 is here and localised versions will be coming soon.

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R1: Deploy System Database

Microsoft Dynamics GPNow that we have the first client installed, we can deploy the system database. By default the system database is called DYNAMCIS, but i have chosen to use one called D16R1. To deploy the system database, hit the Windows start button, search for and launch GP Utilities.

While I do try to minimise the use of the sa account as it is the SQL Server system administrator account, the initial implementation of Dynamics GP does require its use. So, on the Welcome to Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities window enter sa in the User ID field and enter the relevant password.

Once done, click OK:
