This is very simple yet important feature that’s been added to GP 2010 Customers & Prospects Lookup.
Now we have an option called “Exclude Inactive Customers” and once we select it, the lookup filters Customers who are only Active and displays in Lookup. And it is not just that, we can set it up as Default View by clicking on “Set as Default View”. This is how it is:
I remember I have done this filtering using VBA code to one of my customers, an year back. And needless to say, my work got appreciated as none of the other approach they tried worked with a better performance.
Now this feature comes out of the box and I am sure a massive list of Customers would be happy with this.
