Remove Microsoft Word Index Entries

Microsoft WordI’ve written a few books over the last few years; I use Microsoft Word as it is easy to work in and easy to convert to PDF. Some of the books I have written have been self published. Doing it this ways means that I need to do all of the layout and formatting, such as creating the index.

On occasion, I have had a need to remove the index and re-add; this is most often when I am writing a new edition of a book. I’ve done a fair bit of searching for ways of doing this and have used a couple of different approaches.

One of the early approaches I came across was to use VBA to strip the index entries out, but more recently I found another, much simpler, way of doing it using find and replace.

Press Ctrl+H to open the Find and Replace dialog; in the Find what box, type ^d XE:

Find and replace

New GP Resource Added: Microsoft Dynamics GP Books

Microsoft Dynamics GPRather than just leaving the Microsoft Dynamics GP Book Roundup as a post, I have made it a page available from the GP Resources menu.

I will be doing my best to keep this page up to date; if I have missed any books on Microsoft Dynamics GP, please get in touch and let me know so I can add the book.

I accidentally missed the Dynamics GP 2016 Security and Field Audit book by Mark Polino and Andy Snook from the round up post, but have added it to the page.

The new GP books resource page is here.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Book Roundup

Microsoft Dynamics GPThere are a number of books available for Microsoft Dynamics GP which have been written by various people across a umber of years (although a few names crop up repeatedly). I thought it might be useful to list the books which are currently available for each version of Microsoft Dynamics GP; some of the books are only available for older versions of Dynamics GP, but the information within is still mostly relevant.

To avoid any appearence of favouritism, I have listed them in Dynamics GP version and author surname order (when multiple authors, the first listed author’s name is used).

Where there is no version in the name I have made by best guess as to which version it was written against.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2018

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016

Microsoft Dynamics GP Workflow 2.0 Second Edition Now Available on Amazon

Microsoft Dynamics GPMy sixth book is now available to buy in both eBook format from azurecurve Publishing and paperback from CreateSpace, Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk.

This is an update to the original Workflow 2.0 book I wrote a couple of years ago. This edition includes coverage of the new functionality introduced in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016, a new chapter on adding table joins to workflow to allow additional conditions to be created, and some chapters and sections have been rewritten to either expand or make clearer the topics being covered.

Dynamics GP includes a variety of tools and modules to assist in controlling processes and data; one of the major modules for this was the Dynamics Workflow module. However, this module had major flaws which very much limited its usefulness; it was slow, clunky and difficult to install, configure and maintain.

Hands On With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2: Configure & Use OData Service

Microsoft Dynamics GPWith the release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 R2 it’s time for a series of “hands on” posts where I go through the installation of all of it’s components; the index for this series can be found here.

I am not going to cover the configuraion and use of OData in this post, as it is not an area with which I have much experience. However, I know a man who does and I wrote a book with him in 2016:

Microsoft Dynamics GP Cookbook

Mark Polino is one of the three top people for reporting from Microsoft Dynamics GP and, in Chapter 13: Modern Business Intelligence for Microsoft Dynamics GP of the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Cookbook, Mark covered how to configure and use the GP OData Service.

The full outline of topics covered by Mark is as follows:

  • Introduction
  • Activating OData for better external analysis
  • Secure OData to control access
  • Connecting OData to Excel for Business Intelligence
  • Connecting GP to Power BI with OData
  • Adding Power BI to the home page in Dynamics GP
