991 Tables Added to GP Table Reference

GP Table ReferenceEither Microsoft have added a hell of a lot of new tables to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018 RTM or I had a lot more missing tables on the azurecurve|GP Table Reference than I thought I did (I knew the Email tables were missing).

I know I have added the tables for five missing products:

  1. Advanced Security
  2. Analysis Cubes for Excel
  3. Excel-Based Budgets
  4. Report Scheduler
  5. Technical Service Tools

However, overall there was 991 tables added to the site, suggesting a lot of missing tables have been added, as I know these five products do not have that many tables.

I am going to be adding ISV products to the site as well, look for lighter or darker blue tiles (I've not yet decided on the colour); if you work for an ISV, or use ISV products, and want the tables added to the GP Table Reference, please get in touch with details of what you want adding.

When Integration Manager starts, you will be presented with a Register Now/Later window; to use Integration Manager, a licence key must be entered, so click Register Now:

A number of my clients use Integration Manager for loading data into Microsoft Dynamics GP; a number of the integrations are either available only with, or run faster with, the eConnect adaptor. So before Integration Manager itself can be installed, eConnect needs to be installed on the client machine.

eConnect is available through the setup utility under the Additional Products header. Before you get to select this though, you may need to click through some security warnings.

Depending on server settings, you might receive multiple security warnings during the installation; click Run on each one as it appears:
