Dynamics GP On-Demand Learning: Word Template Tips

Excellent post on Dynamics GP Support & Services blog that walks us through GP Word Templates.

This was the last post in the series named Microsoft Dynamics GP On Demand Learning Series.

Sincere thanks to GP Support Team, for posting these articles. Highly informative.


How to Configure Word Templates in GP2010 – David Musgrave

This article seems like an extension to what Inside Dynamics GP explained us on GP2010 Word Templates (Feature of the Day Series). But that extended information is what matters for us. You may miss this information if you are not a Developer. Rather it may not sound relevant for you in that case.

David explains How to Configure, and most importantly, Where These Templates are Stored. Quite interesting.

Thanks David, for the insight.



Dynamics GP 2010 – Issue in Editing Word Template in MS Word

I had mentioned in my previous article about OpenXML Plugin that must be installed on our system to run Word Template Report.

Once this was done on my test environment, I still could not see my Word Template report displaying all information as demonstrated in some Teaser Demos. The following was my Sales Order output:

The Header & Footer information were never shown and I am puzzled again as to how I could solve this issue.

When I tried modifying the Template from Word, the Microsoft Dynamics GP Add-In for Microsoft Word was loaded successfully on my MS Word, but I could never see “Developer” tab which will enable me to modify Word Report by adding / removing fields, logos etc.

I am still trying to find why this happens.


Dynamics GP 2010 – Word Templates (Important Information)

This article does not explain how Word Template work in GP 11 Beta.

This is intended to inform that there may be Consultants / Partners who would not be able to see “Template” as an option at all when they run a report in GP 11. To get it working, the following link provides us Open XML SDK that must be installed for this feature to work.

Thanks to an Anonymous user who shared this in my article: Dynamics GP 2010 – Features I am looking at.
