Everyone knows that GP2010 R2 got released well before it’s announced date (1st May 2011).
A few weeks aback, I co-presented a deep dive session with my partner in crime, David Musgrave, at Microsoft Dynamics Convergence Atlanta 2011 DDGP03 Microsoft Dynamics GP Customization & Integration Tools Review – see Microsoft Dynamics Convergence Atlanta 2011: Day 3 for more on what happened that day. During our session, we introduce a Visual Studio Tools sample that left a few managed code developers scratching their heads – a bit. The sample in question used Modifier, Dexterity, and Visual Studio Tools to provide a customization to the Vendor Maintenance window.
The Dynamics GP Blogster: Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 R2 is hot off the press… : “Microsoft has made GP 2010 R2 available prior to the original launch date of May 1, 2011. The product can be downloaded from CustomerSource …” http://mbsguru.blogspot.com/atom.xml
I have installed Dynamics GP 2010 R2 and really enjoyed walking through dashboards and KPIs added to the application, but most of the KPI’s does not show the actual company data, instead it is showing zeros as below: This is actually not related to an installation issue, it is due to the fact that the report is using the current date while Fabrikam uses 2017 as the default year, to view the report with data, just click on the “View” icon and select the report: Change the date: And enjoy!

During Dynamics GP 2010 R2, I have selected to deploy Dynamics GP Business Intelligence Reports over SQL Server Reporting Services, but before starting the installation, the system generated an error that maximum number of retries has been exceeded and was requested to set a maxRequestLength flag in the web.config. Web.config could be located under the installation path of SQL Server Reporting Services, in my case it was under the following path: C:Program FilesMicrosoft SQL ServerMSRS10.SQL2008Reporting ServicesReportServer in the web.config, search for and include the variable there to make it looks like the below: Somehow, 20690 in specific is required, it will not accept number higher!

Date Effective Tax Rates Why this feature is cool! This feature allows the user to set up different tax percentages for a tax detail ID for various date ranges as specified by the tax authority. The tax percentage that you set up for a date range overrides the tax percentages set up in Microsoft Dynamics GP for transactions that fall within the specified date range. You also can update tax detail IDs in the Tax Detail Maintenance window with the tax percentage using Date Effective Tax Rates.
