5 Useful SQL Features for Microsoft Dynamics GP

View our free webinarsRead more about Hosted Dynamics GPDownload a FREE Demo

When organizing your business’ data and sorting through multiple categories and headings, it’s easy to get overwhelmed with the time-consuming process. Structured Query Language (SQL) used in Microsoft Dynamics GP serves to retrieve information from databases through the use of basic statements and clauses. Here are some SQL features that can help you sort through data quickly in Microsoft Dynamics GP:

  • Select clause – Allows you to pull and read data from the database. Often using the Select * format, this statement enables the user to select data from columns and tables such as a list of customers.
  • Where clause – Used to filter your list based on a certain condition, such as to specify a customer’s country or location.
  • Alias syntax – Enables the user to rename a database table or a column in a table. This function becomes especially useful when there are multiple tables in a query or when column names are long and not easily readable.
  • Join clause – Helps to combine and add more columns in your data. The join clause is often used to combine fields from two tables by using values that are common to each. 
  • Group by clause – Allows you to compress, consolidate and summarize data. This clause is used together with aggregate functions to group a result set into one or more columns.

New Dynamics GP 2013 R2 Features for the General Ledger

Learn more about Dynamics GPView Dynamics GP PricingFree Dynamics GP Training

Here are some of the new exciting General Ledger features that Microsoft Dynamics GP has to offer in its new release GP 2013 R2:

Dynamics GP users will now have the option to reverse the General Ledger Year-End Closing Process in order to open one or more previous historical years, whereas in previous releases one was not able to perform this, according to Andy Sather, member of the Microsoft Dynamics GP Community.

This feature will be very helpful in troubleshooting year-end closing issues as well as allowing users to post transactions to previously closed years. Remember to make restorable backups both before and after re-opening each year in case there are any issues. Be cautious, though, because this process will clear all Balance Brought forward records from the previous year and new records will be created once the year is re-closed.

Also, users will now be able to quickly copy data from Excel sheets into the Financial Transaction entry form. Validation rules exist and if any errors pop-up they can be easily corrected. This new system capability will be a great time saver for those Dynamics GP users who prefer to save their entries in Excel files first. Note that for now this feature is only available in the General Ledger Transaction Entry window.

Microsoft has announced that Business Portal and Microsoft SharePoint Server 2010 runtime will be discontinued from Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015.

However, the core Business Portal functionality will be included in the GP 2015 web or desktop client. According to Microsoft's Kelly Obach, Manager of the Executive Business Center:

"The plan is to basically phase out Business Portal as we release apps or modules inside Dynamics GP that replace the same functionality".

So, for those clients that would like to purchase or upgrade to Dynamics GP 2015, Business Portal will no longer be available.

Troubleshooting Manufacturing Order (MO) Receipt Posting Errors in Dynamics GP

Learn more about Dynamics GPView Dynamics GP PricingFree Dynamics GP Training

When a Manufacturing Order (MO) receipt posting is interrupted, it will not allow a user to receive the MO again. If this occurs, one should first check the MO variance (Inquiry > Manufacturing > Order Variance) window within Dynamics GP. The MO variance is always a good indication as to what happened to the goods. If the MO variance has zero quantities or dollars in the consumed column, one would assume they may receive the MO.

 

If Dynamics GP provides an error informing the user that units are not available to be received when attempting to receive the MO, one should check the database. To do this, run the following SQL statement:

select * from MOP1000 where MANUFACTUREORDER_I = 'MO number'

Check if there are quantities in the QTYRECVD and QTYSOLD columns. Since posting is interrupted, it may have created values in the QTYRECD column and hence the MO cannot be received.


Update the MOP1000 table and set the QTYRECVD back to zero. This will allow you to receive the MO.

Ah, Microsoft’s Patch Tuesday.

Learn more about Dynamics GPView Dynamics GP PricingFree Dynamics GP Training

For most, it is a day of thrills and excitement *eye roll*. For system administrators, it is a day of skepticism and uncertainty. It reminds me of an old adage you may be familiar with, “When a door closes, five windows break”.

Microsoft released an update for Remote Desktop Connection (8.1) back in February (KB2830477) to introduce new (native) features from Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2 to computers running Windows 7 SP1. There were a few issues that stemmed from the release, including the inability to use smartcard and smartcard devices in RDP sessions. One issue that directly affected our clients was the inability to launch RDP packages from our remote desktop websites. Users could click an application icon, but the packages would not run.

One solution is to uninstall the update (KB2830477) from the respective user’s workstation, thereby reverting back to the original RDP client version. However, this did not resolve the issue for all of our client users. Interestingly, we had a mix of users within the same client organization that either had or did not encounter the issue.

After some extensive debugging, a second solution was found that requires a change to the registry on the user’s workstation. These steps are outlined below:

Integrating the Purchasing and Fixed Assets Module in Dynamics GP

Learn more about Dynamics GPView Dynamics GP PricingFree Dynamics GP Training

New fixed assets are often added manually to the fixed assets module. This relies on users to remember to check if new assets are purchased. In Dynamics GP, there is a setup to link the purchase of new assets to the fixed asset module. The setup required is to input the Purchasing Posting Accounts. After the accounts are setup, Accounts Payable will enter their invoices as per the usual procedure and select the general ledger account that is used in the Purchasing Posting Accounts. Once the payables are entered, the purchases will show up in the fixed assets module. The fixed assets accountant will select the purchases and update the fixed asset's information. The fixed assets accountant will never need to remember to add in new assets manually. This eliminates the errors when new fixed assets are purchased but never inputted into the fixed assets module creating an imbalance of the GL versus the fixed assets subledger.

For more information on how to setup the Purchasing Posting Accounts, please email support@websan.com.

US Court Announces That Cloud Companies In The EU Should Hand Over Their Data

The US Court announced recently that all European Hosting Providers are obliged to hand over ALL their data to the US government. According to US Magistrates court judge James C. Francis, internet and cloud companies must turn over all information to US government agencies on demand, regardless of where the data is held.

This means that even if you use a European Provider to host your services, the law might still apply to your case if the provider's data centers are located in the USA. You can read the full article here.

After the NSA revelations and their surveillance activities, this announcement adds an an additional concern for those companies in the European Union that consider working with a US hosting provider or anyone in their country that utilizes US data centers.

The good news is that Canada is not affected by this announcement and you can securely choose a Canadian cloud hosting provider, without worrying about leaking your confidential information.

WebSan Solutions can help you by offering Dynamics GP Hosting Services through our Partner Program. Also, if you are a Microsoft Partner and only offer Dynamics GP on-premise, we can help you serve new clients efficiently. Plus, WebSan offers you peace of mind by hosting your data securely in our SAS70/SSAE16 certified data centre in Toronto, Canada.
