Dynamics GP ACA(Affordable Care Act) Solution

The ACA changes are almost here, and along with it additional reporting requirements. The US Small Business Administration has a lot of information available at http://www.sba.gov/healthcare

You would want to check out information relevant to the bracket you fit in –

A Microsoft Partner Lanac Technology has create a integrated solution to address this need http://info.lanactech.com/aca/

You can watch a Webcast to review what they have done at – http://mcgladrey.com/content/mcgladrey/en_US/events/microsoft-dynamics-gp-reporting-solutions-for-affordable-care-ac.html

In the new age of the Affordable Care Act, pressure to file payroll data accurately and confidently with the IRS is just one of the challenges for U.S. employers. Every organization doing business in the United States will have to digest the numerous and complex changes mandated for payroll reporting – and find a way to transform its information systems accordingly.

As a company that supports major users of Microsoft Dynamics GP’s Payroll module, LANAC Technology began in 2012 to pore over the Affordable Care Act’s fine print for employers. Our clients asked that we:

  • find a way they could meet the reporting requirements of the ACA confidently
  • provide business intelligence to forecast each of their employees’ eligibility for employer-provided health insurance
  • accomplish this with minimal disruption to their current processes

We dissected the multitudes of employer directives in the Affordable Care Act and put our ace development team on the job of creating software that makes ACA compliance headache-free for Dynamics GP Payroll users. The result is a Dynamics-specific product that we call ACA Reporting for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2: VBA and the Action Pane

Lucas Miller - Click for blog homepageHello!

I just want to first take a second to introduce myself since this is my first post on the Developing for Dynamics GP blog.  My name is Lucas Miller and I’ve been supporting Microsoft Dynamics GP since 2005.  Like much of the team I’m based out of Fargo, ND, USA.  I’ve been married for almost 2 years and my wife and I are expecting our first in just under 3 weeks as of this writing.  My main focus has been on the system side, but the last couple years I’ve been focusing on import tools (e.g. Integration Manager and eConnect) and I was deeply involved in the Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client development and readiness efforts.

We’ve recently seen a couple questions on both the community forums and in support cases regarding the ability to add resources that are contained in the new Action Pane that was introduced in GP 2013 R2, to VBA. 

When you go to Microsoft Dynamics GP > Tools > Customize > Add Fields to Visual Basic… you will see that your mouse cursor changes to symbolize you are now adding fields to VBA rather than simply selecting them.  The problem arises when you hover over a button on the Action Pane, for example the Save button.  You’ll notice that the cursor changes back to an arrow.  You’re not allowed to add the field to Visual Basic, which can certainly hinder customizations that many of our customers and partners want to create.

The solution that we’ve found for this issue is to go to the Microsoft Dynamics GP > User Preferences window and change the Window Command Display option to Menu Bar. 

You then need to log out and back into Dynamics GP to finalize this change.  You are then able to add your buttons to VBA just like you could in previous versions.  Just to refresh your memory, here’s what the Action Pane looks like:

And here’s the Menu Bar:

This change should only be required to get the fields into VBA initially.  After the development task has been completed the customizations should work the same for users who are using Menu Bar, Action Pane Strip or Action Pane.

Hope this helps for those of you who are looking into Visual Basic to meet your customization needs in Dynamics GP 2013 R2!

Enjoy!

Lucas

Best Dynamics GP Event Ever – reIMAGINE 2014

The Dynamics GP consultant is the most important person in
any Dynamics GP VAR. But they never get
to have fun. Consultants are overworked, pushed to hit 90% utilization day in
day out. That’s makes them sad. 

 

There are many events that are geared at sales people and
Executives – but the consultants are billing machines that always have to stay
home. Like any productive machine  -

#reIMAGINE2014 Keynote Speaker: Doug Burgum

Doug Burgum in his days

Yes, THE Doug Burgum will be the keynote speaker at Microsoft’s #reIMAGINE2014 conference in Fargo, ND., hosted by Dynamics Partner Connections. If this is not enough reason to go to Fargo in November, then I don’t know what is.

Of course, Doug has changed a bit from his days at Great Plains Software and Microsoft and this is probably the man you will see on stage at the Historic Fargo Theater.

Doug Burgum today

So sharpen up on your Microsoft Dynamics GP history and join us there. You can register by visiting the reIMAGINE 2014 site. Not only will the keynote be off the charts, but you will get to learn a ton.
