SQL View to Return Purchases By Vendor By Fiscal Year

Microsoft Dynamics GPI did a post a few weeks ago which included a SQL view which could be used to return a list of purchases by creditors/vendors by year. I wrote the view for a client who operates a financial year which is the same as the calendar year.

However, most of my clients use different financial years, so I have also created a script which returns the same information, but links to the Financial Calendar to determine which financial, rather than calendar, year a transaction is within:

IF OBJECT_ID (N'uv_AZRCRV_PurchasesByVendorByYear', N'V') IS NOT NULL
	DROP VIEW uv_AZRCRV_PurchasesByVendorByYear
GO
CREATE VIEW uv_AZRCRV_PurchasesByVendorByYear AS

MDGP 2018 RTM Feature of the Day: DocAttach Security Setup

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has started a series Feature of the Day posts for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM; as the most recent versions have been, these posts are in the form of PowerPoint slides; I am reposting them here so they can be read more easily as well as adding my own commentary.

The series index for this series of posts is here.

The fourth Feature of the Day is the security setup around allowing users to add document attachments via inquiry/enquiry windows.

The third Feature of the Day post, yesterday, covered the enquiry windows which had been updated to allow notes to be added via DocAttach.

The feature today is the security around this new capability; you need to mark the Allow attachments to be added in inquiry windows for users to be able to use the new functionality to add notes.

There is also a password field which can be set to allow users to use the new functionality when enabled; this allows you to retain some control over which users can add an attachment:

Document Attachment Setup

I like the ability to add attachments to enquiry windows, but I’m not sure that it needed separate security in this way; it’s yet one more checkbox to enable when implementing the feature.

The password may be useful, but I think, for most of my clients at least, anyone with access to the enquiry window would be able to add attachments anyway.

That said, each site using Dynamics GP is different and I am sure some users will like the flexibility of both of the security options which have been introduced.

SQL Script To Verify Sales Invoice Extended Cost Against Subtotal

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis script is the result of a support call logged by a client where the incorrect value on sales invoices was being invoiced to customers. There was a small number of invoices being created which were showing the incorrect value; there was concern that the issue might be wider than thought, so I wrote this script to verify the sum of the Extended Cost of the lines on an invoice against the Subtotal.

This script is configured to check invoices, but could be used against other transaction types if the highlighted section is changed.

SQL Script to Set EFT Output Locations When Copying Live To Test

Microsoft Dynamics GPAs mentioned in the last post I’ve had a couple of scripts recently which I needed to create in order to facilitate clients easily making live to test copies without issues arising.

The script, below, can be used to set the EFT file locations in Checkbook Master. For the client I was working with, we only needed to set the file location of the Domestic Payments File Location field, but I am including all of the file location fields in the script.

Simply change the highlighted path locations to the required paths and set the Checkbook ID at the bottom:

MDGP 2018 RTM Feature of the Day: DocAttach Available on More Windows

The first Feature of the Day is Document Attachment available on more windows.

Five additional windows now have Doc Attach available via a button on the action pane:

It is nice to see Fixed Assets getting some Doc Attach functionality; quite a few clients have documentation or images relating to their assets, so this offers a good way to keep these with the asset.

SQL Script to Update Web Services Server in Workflow Setup When Copying Live To Test

Microsoft Dynamics GPAll clients will at some point copy their live company into a test one, whether or not the test system is on the same server or a different one. If on the same machine, they will usually use an automated process to perform the backup and restore.

There is usually other tasks which will need to be undertaken such as changing the output location of the EFT Payment Register Report or prefixing email message subjects with “TEST” or setting all email addresses to internal ones.

I’ve recently encountered a couple more fields which need to be reset to avoid problems when copying live to test. The one prompting this script, was when the live company was copied to the standalone test system, the Web Services server needed to be changed to a different value:

*/
UPDATE WF00100
	SET
		Web_Service_Server = '{servername}'
WHERE
	SETUPKEY = 0
GO

The highlighted section, above, needs to be changed to your Web Services server.

In addition, a repair needed to be run using the Web Services Configuration Wizard, but at least the script removes one manual step.

As always with scripts, please make sure you have a good backup before using the script.

Security Views For Use In SmartList Designer: Group Based Company Access In Management Reporter

Microsoft Dynamics GPA while ago, I did a series of views on the Microsoft Dynamics GP security model. Well, a little after that I wrote a couple of scripts to allow the security configuration of Management Reporter to easily be enquired upon.

This, the second Management Reporter security script, shows security for users as granted by their Group membership. the previous post, on Friday, showed the user based company access.

The view is configured to read the security from a database called ManagementReporter and assumes the user who runs the report has select permissions on this database and relevant tables.
