SSRS GL Trial Balance Returning No Data

Microsoft Dynamics GPI was doing some testing to compare the SSRS Trial Balance against the standard report version but ran into a problem straight away when I found the SSRS version returned no data.

A quick search online found me this post SSRS: GL Trial Balance Summary report returns no data – Follow Up by Mariano Gomez where he discussed the exact problem I had encountered.

As Mariano says this has been fixed in the upcoming SP3 but for now there is a Knowledge Base article covering a workaround which is to alter the stored procedure (seeglPrintSRSTrialBalance) which is used for returning the data: GL Trial Balance SRS Reports return no data using Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Suggestion – Copy and Paste from Excel to the GL Transaction Entry Window

Microsoft Dynamics GPContinuing Mark Polino’s weekly DynamicAccounting.net series of posts recommending an MS Connect suggestion.

This weeks is a vote on allowing a Journal to be composed in Microsoft Office Excel and then copied and pasted into the General Ledger Transaction Entry window. This functionality would be useful for those people who don’t have Integration Manager – Financials.

Error Starting Microsoft Dynamics GP After Installing PSTL

Microsoft Dynamics GPI’m taking a slight detour away from posting the series of how to’s on the Professional Services Tools Library to highlight an installation error that I’ve recently seen when installing PSTL.

A client recently installed PSTL and reported receiving the below error message;

Microsoft Dynamics GP - A Get/Change Operation on Table 'gpAppEnabled' cannot find the table

I’d sent them the PSTL download along with the instructions on how to install it without realising that there was a missing part to me instructions (which has now been added).

When installing PSTL into a company for the first time, you must log into Microsoft Dynamics GP as the sa user as there are some tables which get created (covered in KB Article 861564 which is actually a retired article but does mention the issue and the resolution).

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Suggestion – Improve Intercompany

Microsoft Dynamics GPContinuing Mark Polino’s weekly DynamicAccounting.net series of posts recommending an MS Connect suggestion.

This weeks is a vote on improving intercompany transactions. While, as Mark points out, the suggestion is a little on the vague side, voting to imProve intercompany will focus Microsoft’s gaze upon the subject of intercompany support.

If you’d be interested in seeing this change made, please go to Connect and vote.

As an aside, I’m at square one house wise now but had my time taken up With a side project (details to be announced soon) but I now aim to get back posting with some regularity.

Mark Polino’s Weekly MS Connect Recommendation – SmartList Left Pane Resizing

Microsoft Dynamics GPMark Polino on This weeks is a vote on allowing the left hand (treeview) pane of the SmartList to be resized.

Voting for this would be a better, long term fix to the problem of how GP itself resizes the pane and an alternative to customisations such as this one.
