#MSCONNECT GP – Bug in taGetPMNextVoucherNumber causes duplicate voucher numbers to be issued

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the fourth in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is eConnect calls for getting the next transaction number generating duplicate numbers, submitted by Steve Endow.

This issue affects sites using eConnect where they have a high throughput of documents happening at the same time. The code that provides the next transaction number is not contained in a SQL Transaction which means it does not detect if the code is being executed more than once at the same time and so two independent calls can receive the same next transaction number. This will cause the second of the transactions to fail to import with a duplicate number error.

I know that Steve’s product suggestion references the Payables Management script (taGetPMNextVoucherNumber), but I would like all of the related “GetNextNumber” scripts reviewed and fixed if necessary.

For more information on the issue, see Steve’s blog post:

So if you think it is important that these eConnect scripts are fixed so they can handle the multi user concurrency issues without returning duplicate numbers, please vote using the links below.

Friday Funny: 6 The Hard Way

David Meego - Click for blog homepageHere is another numeric challenge from the internet to keep you thinking. This one does involve mathematics unlike the previous Friday Funny: Impossible Numeric Puzzles post.

This one should have the gears spinning as you work out the solutions.

The puzzle is called “6 The Hard Way” and involves you creating mathematical equations that will make three digits (from 0 to 9) equal 6.

6TheHardWay

Here are the rules:

  • You cannot draw a number.
  • To get to 6, all you can use are mathematical symbols – as long as they don’t include a number.
  • You can solve the equations in any order.

To get you started, I will give you one of the solutions:

6 + 6 – 6 = 6

Respond in the comments how you went, but don’t give away any answers.

Hint: The solution to the 8’s equation is the hardest and needs all the techniques you would have worked out to solve the other equations, so do that one last.

Enjoy

David

PS: I will post the source links later as they include solutions.

#MSCONNECT GP – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 Documentation

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the third in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is the lack of updated documentation for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016, submitted by Vaidy Mohan.

Ever since Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 the documentation available for the product has been becoming scarcer. With Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 there were 96 files installed into the documentation folder.

From Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 onwards there have been only 15 files in the folder and those have barely been updated for the GP 2015 and GP 2016 releases. If you open the pdf manuals, they mostly refer to GP 2013.

Updates for the documentation for Dexterity and the Dexterity help file as well as the SDK documentation has been lacking in the last releases.

I know that keeping the documentation up to date requires time and resources, but it is a valuable part of any software product, especially something as large and complex and Microsoft Dynamics GP.

So if you want the documentation kept up to date with the software, please vote using the links below.

#MSCONNECT Allow Dynamics GP Desktop client to resize correctly based on screen DPI percentage

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the second in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is the ability to resize Microsoft Dynamics GP for various screen sizes and DPI settings.

Back when Windows 7 was released, I came across an issue where the font size for Microsoft Dynamics GP was incorrect. In my case the font was larger than it should be and prompts were getting cut off (and it looked ugly).

I discovered that the issue was caused by Windows defaulting to a DPI setting of 125% on installation (based on my monitor and display card) and setting the default bitmap font size to 120%. Even though I was able to return the DPI setting to 100%, the bitmap fonts remained at 120%.

After a fair amount of research I was able to find the cause and a solution and documented how to edit the registry to change the size of the bitmap fonts. I even included an interface to make the registry changes simple into the Support Debugging Tool (now GP Power Tools).

The issue has raised itself again, but this time going in the other direct. Machines are now running at super high resolutions above Full HD (1920×1080) such as the Surface Book (3000×2000) or 4K screens (3840×2160) and GP just cannot size up to be easily readable on these displays. The bitmap font only has 100% or 120%.

Windows 10 does seem to offer better resizing abilities, even with the bitmap fonts. However, it would be great if Dynamics GP could resize like other applications.

For more information on the issues caused by the use of bitmap fonts see the original blog posts below:

So if you want to be able to use any DPI setting for Microsoft Dynamics GP and have it resize just like any other Microsoft product vote using the links below.

#MSCONNECT Open more than one window at a time in GP2016 Web Client

David Meego - Click for blog homepageTime to vote.

This is the first in a series of blog posts where I will be highlighting Microsoft Connect product suggestions that need the community’s support. If you agree with the product suggestion, please help get as many votes as you can.

The issue which is the subject of today’s article is the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 HTML5 Web Client, submitted by Belinda Allen MVP.

Unlike the previous Silverlight based web client, the new HTML5 web client will only allow one active window at a time. You cannot have two or more windows open at the same time and work between them.

This also means that you cannot have a companion window open at the same time. Companion windows are additional windows often used by ISVs and customisation developers to add additional fields to a window without having to create alternate windows.

Note: You can only create alternate windows from core Dynamics.dic windows and can only have one alternate window selected for use at a time. Alternate windows cannot be created from a third party window (alternate or original).

A common example of a companion window is an Extender form with additional user defined fields. It would not be possible to have the Extender window open at the same time as the parent window. You would need to open and close it to return to the parent window underneath each time.

If the window you want to access does not have direct navigation from the current window, you would need to use the new window search facility to search for the other window each time to bring it to the foreground.

If you would like the option to have the previous web client behaviour back, please vote using the links below:

#VSIT Visual Studio Integration Toolkit build 11 released

David Meego - Click for blog homepageFor the Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP developers out there, I am pleased to announce that the next build of the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit for Microsoft Dynamics GP (VSIT) is now available for download.

The Visual Studio Integration Toolkit was previously known as Menus for Visual Studio Tools (MVST), which was discontinued in October 2014. If you are still using the previous product, please upgrade to the supported product.

This build adds support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 as well as adding a full installer, digitally signed DLLs and registration system.

Build 11 of Visual Studio Integration Toolkit is available for the following Microsoft Dynamics GP versions:

  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 (v11.0),
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and GP 2013 R2 (v12.0),
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 and GP 2015 R2 (v14.0)
  • Microsoft Dynamics GP 2016 (v16.0).

The installer supports multiple instances of Microsoft Dynamics GP as well as silent installs and will automatically install the Dexterity product dictionary and dual signed Dictionary Assembly DLL files into the correct folders for you.

The registration system allows us to track the usage of the tool so that we can support it better. The current menu navigation functionality of the tool does require registration to work, but there is no cost for that registration. You will need to contact Mekorma for registration via their Order Now page to obtain keys for each customer site using Visual Studio Integration Toolkit.

At a later stage additional features will be added to a “Professional” version of the toolkit and these will need to be registered with an annual subscription fee.

Important: When installing VSIT on a system which already has MSVT installed, you will be asked to restart Microsoft Dynamics GP to complete the renaming of the product. You will also need to remove and re-add your reference to the Application.MenusForVisualStudioTools.dll assembly in your Visual Studio projects.

More Information

For more information and download links, please see the Visual Studio Integration Toolkit Portal page:

More information on the additional functionality being added to the “professional” version will be posted on this blog, so watch this space.

Please post comments and feedback.

David
