Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release New Features – Financial Enhancements series where I am going hands on with the financial enhancements of the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP; it is part of the larger Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release New Features series.

The seventh, and last, financial enhancement is the display of the check or card number in the Apply Sales Document window (Sales area page » Transactions » Apply Sales Document) which was was entered on the payment at the time of entry:

Apply Sales Document

The addition of the field has meant a little shuffling of existing fields on the window, but the addition of this field improves visibility and allow users to be sure they are applying the correct payment.

PowerShell to run script bypassing execution policy

PowerShellIn yesterday’s article, I posted a script which can be used to download and delete files from a folder on an FTP site. When I tested it on one computer it worked fine, but on another it failed as the running of PowerShell is restricted. To avoid this error the PowerShell script can be saved to a file with a ps1 extension and then executed using the following (replace the highlighted section with your filename):

powershell -executionpolicy bypass -File "download files.ps1"

This will bypass the execution policy restricting the script from running and allow it to run without issue.

PowerShell script to download all files from FTP folder then delete files

PowerShellA few weeks ago, I did an article on making folder backups on an FTP site and compressed MySQL backups using Cron.

With the backups made, they need to be downloaded and this is not something I want to do manually. My initial thought was VBA until common sense kicked in and I opted for PowerShell. I found a post on Stack overflow which had the required script to connect to an FTP site and download files which got me half of what I needed.

I did some reading up and was able to work out the function to delete files on an FTP site and have included that in the PowerShell below so that this script both downloads files and deletes them.

There are several parameters which need to be set and these are placed at the top and highlighted to make them easy to identify; make sure all of the highlighted parts are replaced including the curly brackets.

#FTP Server Information - SET VARIABLES
$ftp = "{ftp site}"
$user = "{user}"
$pass = "{password}"
$folder = "{source folder}"
$target = "{destination folder}"

#Register get FTP Directory function
function Get-FtpDir ($url, $credentials) {
	$request = [Net.WebRequest]::Create($url)
	$request.Method = [System.Net.WebRequestMethods+FTP]::ListDirectory

	if ($credentials) { $request.Credentials = $credentials }
	
	$response = $request.GetResponse()
	$reader = New-Object IO.StreamReader $response.GetResponseStream() 
	
	while(-not $reader.EndOfStream) {
		$reader.ReadLine()
	}
	
	$reader.Close()
	$response.Close()
}

#Register Delete function
function Del-FtpFile($source, $credentials) {
    $source2 = [system.URI] $source
	
    $ftp = [System.Net.FtpWebRequest]::create($source2)
    $ftp.Credentials = $credentials

    $ftp.Method = [System.Net.WebRequestMethods+Ftp]::DeleteFile
	
    $ftp.GetResponse()
}

#Set Crednetials
$credentials = new-object System.Net.NetworkCredential($user, $pass)

#set folder path
$folderPath= $ftp + "/" + $folder + "/"

$files = Get-FTPDir -url $folderPath -credentials $credentials

$webclient = New-Object System.Net.WebClient 
$webclient.Credentials = $credentials 
$counter = 0
foreach ($file in ($files | where {$_ -like "*.gz"})){
	$source = $folderPath + $file  
	$destination = $target + $file 
	$webclient.DownloadFile($source, $destination)
	
	#PRINT FILE NAME AND COUNTER
	$counter++
	$source
	
	# DELETE FILE
	Del-FtpFile -source $source -credentials $credentials

Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release New Features – Financial Enhancements: Visual Cue for EFT Vendor on Edit Payment Batch

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis post is part of the Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release New Features – Financial Enhancements series where I am going hands on with the financial enhancements of the new version of Microsoft Dynamics GP; it is part of the larger Hands On with Microsoft Dynamics GP October 2019 Release New Features series.

The sixth financial enhancement is the addition of a visual cue to the Edit Payment Batch window (Purchasing area page » Transactions » Edit Payment Batch) for vendors who are set up for EFT payments:

Edit Payment Batch

I have very few clients left who do not pay by EFT and this is a great addition which will make it very easy to identify if a vendor doesn’t have EFT details set up against the remittance address. EFT Bank details beign entered against the primary address, rather than the remit to address, is the most common reason for vendors not to be selected while building a payment batch. At a glance the user will now be able to see if details are present or not while reviewing the batch.

The fifth financial enhancement is the addition of Document Attachment to the Bank Reconciliation transaction entry and transaction inquiry windows.

Bank Transaction Entry

You are now able to attach documents in the following windows:

  • Bank Deposit Entry
  • Bank Transaction Entry
  • Bank Deposit Entry Zoom
  • Bank Transaction Entry Zoom

I’m a big fan of Document Attachment and am pleased to see it rolled out to more areas; this will allow you to attach documentary evidence of any transactions entered through the Bank Reconciliation module.

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas to everyone in the Microsoft Dynamics GP and ClassicPress communities and to anyone else reading this.

I usually just include a Christmas card type image, but thought I’d give you a song this year (although I’m sure you’ll be pleased to know I’m not the one singing). I’ve spent a lot of time in Ireland this year and YouTube has started suggesting Irish music to me, so here is a Christmas song from Celtic Woman:

The fourth financial enhancement is the addition of Class ID to the Transfer and Mass Transfer windows; when you change the class Id, the assigned GL accounts will default from a related account group and can then be edited:

Tramsfer Maintenance

This addition should prove quite useful when transferring assets, as updating the GL accounts is often something clients want to do when performing this action.

The third financial enhancement is the addition of a User Who Posted field on the Journal Entry Inquiry window (Financial area page » Inquiry » Journal Entry) now has a new field that shows the user who posted the entry:

Journal Entry Inquiry showing user who posted

The User Who Posted field shows for both open and historical journals. Being able to see information on which user has been entering or posting transactions has become a much more common question from clients recently, so it is nice to see this addition.

Making compressed MySQL backups of multiple databases using Cron

Cron JobsI’ve posted a couple of articles now on making MySQL backups using Cron, time-based scheduler, on Linux based hosting.

This is, currently, the last post on this subject. The examples so far have been on backing up single databases, but it is possible to backup multiple databases using one command.

The below example shows the syntax to make a compressed backup of all mySQL databases, with the sections to change highlighted:
