I received a strange support request today from one of my users that PO number is not shown fully on Purchase Invoice Inquiry Zoom window. Just tried to inquire some purchase invoices myself and I got what she mentioned:
If you see above highlighted PO number, it’s not shown fully. This will be the case only if you use GP’s standard PO number sequence or used entire PO length of 17 characters.
When I checked it on Modifier, I found a nice little icon sitting right next to PO number field, but overlapping it by some millimeters.
This icon denotes whether the PO line item is Drop-Ship or not.
And boy, isn’t that icon looks cute? But unintentionally, it is overlapping on PO number field. Not sure how folks at GP dev team skipped this.
Solution to this issue? Modifier. Use modifier to resize the field, till we get this fixed by GP dev team.
I am late in blogging about this post. But NOW is the time, as this post just saved my 1/2 day. Seriously. Not kidding. I was stuck with one SQL query execution. There were records to be retrieved, but my code didn’t. After 5-10mins of frustrated troubleshooting, I remembered this post. I should have done that immediately then, but I didn’t.
I setup my VS Tools project to launch GP as instructed on this post and within 2 minutes I could find the issue.
This one deserves to be there on Microsoft Dynamics GP Cookbook (technical).
I have never read such an expansive post on Integration Manager (IM) ever. Mariano touches specific issues, David (and his technical team) on his blog shares specific topics. But this one’s so very expansive and one stop guide to IM issues and tips.
