One of my customers recently upgraded his environment to SQL 2012 and GP 2013 from windows 2003 and GP 9.0, upon installing Management Reporter with CU 9.0 that supports SQL 2012 I have realized that it cumulative update no longer supports windows XP, therefore I had to rollback my installation and install CU8 then re-imported my reports.

This morning I worked with one of the customers on configuring the database backups, and stuck with an issue that after finalizing the Maintenance Plan the job been generating an error, getting into the job history I have seen the below dumb message: Unable to start execution of step 1 (reason: line(1): Syntax error) Luckily I found the below articles about this subject and it helped: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/dc52e0d9-af14-46b9-9904-29b9afa798cd/syntax-error-executing-maintenance-plan-job?forum=sqldatabaseengine http://www.sqlserver-expert.com/2011/08/unable-to-start-execution-of-step-1.html I found few difficulties while looking into the “package” mentioned in the resolution and therefore I though I would share a screenshot, adding a slash “” to the beginning of the text worked like a charm: Regards, — Mohammad R.

Few days back I got mails from many customers reporting that the exchange rates feed stopped working due to an error with the host, the tool was linked to a free exchange rates provider source and therefore it is unsupported. Yesterday Mark Polino gave me a great idea to pull sources from YAHOO or GOOGLE and ignore the source we are using, and due to the large base of customers currently using this product I have redeveloped the product to count on more reliable source by readying from YAHOO which I believe will not go down for long time! YAHOO API provides the rates over a methodology that does not work with the product, therefore I had to “find/amend” a web-service that reads from YAHOO and send results back to the application and the web-service is currently hosted at our web host, I know that the host is not reliable as YAHOO but at least we can get rid of issues we used to face and minimize the downtime as it became controllable. To get the updated package, please drop me a mail and I will send it immediately! Regards, — Mohammad R.
One of the challenges that I been trying to achieve is having my reports graphically designed to show data on “Maps” and that always been the toughest part customers might request. Few days back I been researching with my colleagues on how the “Sales By States” KPI works in Dynamics GP that dynamically pulls the sales of each state on the US map and discovered the “Map” feature in SSRS! We have been able to download the “.shp” file for Jordan map from one of the online free GIS providers and integrated this will SSRS, and then created the following report in SSRS in few minutes, saved this report in SSRS and been able to print this report from GP business analyzer: This article is just to show that this is doable for users to give it a try.
