Update Navigation Pane Series Order

Microsoft Dynamics GPWhen I install demo VMs, I usually want everything setup the same way each time I do it. This includes things like inserting UK VAT Rates as well as some more mundane configuration issues like the order of series on the navigation pane.

That’s what the script in this post does; it switches off some of the series so they don’t show and reorders the remaining ones into the order I want them in.

Before running the script, set the USERID at the top (highlighted).

DECLARE @USERID VARCHAR(30) = 'iang' UPDATE SY07130 SET Visible = 0 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdSequence BETWEEN 6 AND 9 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = CmdSequence + 30 WHERE USERID = @USERID UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 1 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 11 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 2 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 1 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 3 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 6 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 4 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 3 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 5 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 7 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 6 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 2 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 7 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 4 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 8 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 5 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 9 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 10 UPDATE SY07130 SET CmdSequence = 10 WHERE USERID = @USERID AND CmdParentCmdID = 22002 GO

As always before running a script, ensure you have a good backup of your databases.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2 Web Client Scale-Out Deployment: Navigation Differences Between Desktop & Web Clients

Microsoft Dynamics GPThe Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client is very similar in form and function to the desktop client, but there are some differences between the two.
