Dynamics GP 2010 is compatible with SQL Server 2012


Mariano, in his new post, confirms that Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 is compatible with SQL Server 2012. The post also has got links to both CustomerSource and PartnerSource.

This is a good news, since SQL Server 2012 will precede Dynamics GP 2013, which means customers would be first upgrading their SQL Server first.

SQL Server 2012 has got tremendous amount of features that are going to be crucial in future.

So let’s gear up for some serious upgrades.

Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP blog has got a post that cautions us about two important things:

1. Don’t run Check Links process for AA at this time on versions GP10 and GP2010.

Complete list of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 SSRS Reports


Inside Microsoft Dynamics GP has listed out all SSRS reports for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2.

The list categorizes reports by module and indicates whether it’s a normal report or KPI based report. This would be the best document to make us aware of and convince our customers that GP does have such expansive list of standard reports and KPIs.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 – Reporting (By David Duncan & Christopher Liley)


I just added one more treasure on my kit, in the form of a new book called Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 – Reporting, written by David Duncan (I.B.I.S.) and Christopher Liley (I.B.I.S.), published by Packt Publishing.

I have started reading this book from today and hopefully in a week, I will be able to grab hold of the vast set of chapters.

To give you an overview of what is there inside this book: The book covers everything “reporting” in GP. From Report Writer reports to Smartlist to Excel Reports to SSRS to Analysis Cubes to Management Reporter. Every single thing about GP Reporting.

However, the book does not talk about two things:

1. Crystal Reports and the way you can access crystal reports from GP quite understandably because Crystal Reports is NOT supported out of the box by Dynamics GP. It can be used with the help some 3rd Party solutions, such as GP Report Viewer (from Flexible Solutions) or even a simple code piece written by any Consultant who knows GP, Crystal Reporting and .NET coding.

2. FRx, as this is already been replaced by Management Reporter. There is of course a section in this book where the difference between FRx and Management Reporter is explained.

I shall be writing a review of this book in a week’s time (hopefully). Just could not wait to tell you all that this book really going to be a great treasure for those who wants to understand how effectively GP data can be visualized and analyzed.

Until next post.

Failed To Create Object – OLE Error due to Adobe Reader X


Something seems to be amiss with Adobe Reader X and Dynamics GP. Yesterday we upgraded Adobe Reader to version X on our Terminal Server, where our Dynamics GP application resides.

Till then, users were able to attach PDF files to GP records using OLE Object Container. But post upgrade, all users are facing the following error message whenever they try to attach a PDF file or view an existing PDF attachment:

Looks like I am not the only one to face this issue. There is a community forum post which raises the same question. Link to that post: Errors when opening or creating PDF OLE Attachments in Dynamics GP notes.
Not sure how to resolve this at the moment, other than retaining older version of Adobe Reader.

Send To Email – Issue Explained by Janakiram MP


This issue is being currently faced by users in my company as well. And I got the same response from MSFT.

Janakiram MP explains us why “Send To Email” feature is not working with Outlook 2010. Our environment is as follows:

1. Windows Server 2008 R2 64 Bit.
2. Office 2010 64 Bit.
3. Microsoft Dynamics GP2010 SP1.

Anyone facing this issue with above configuration may just want to confirm that it’s not possible at all with 64 Bit Office 2010.
