Changing FRx Menu Option To Open Management Reporter

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn this post I discussed renaming the FRx menu option in Microsoft Dynamics GP to show the name Management Reporter. One thing I didn’t cover, and which Susan Conrod reminded me of in the comments, is how to change the menu option so that it does actually open Management Reporter.

If you have not previously used the FRx mneu option on a client, then clicking the, FRx, or Management Reporter as it will be after you have renamed it, menu option in Microsoft Dynamics GP (Reports » Financial » Management Reporter (or FRx)) you will be presented with this window where you can select the application to be started;

Replicate FRx To Management Reporter Command Customisation To Other Users

Microsoft Dynamics GPIn the last post I showed how the FRx menu can be renamed to show Management Reporter instead.

However, it is also a per user setting so would need to be done for each user created in Microsoft Dynamics GP who had access to Management Reporter.
