I got a request from one of my customers to have the ability to link multiple items with a vendor without the need to add them one by one and I have created this using the .Net toolkit, the screen will look like the below: The user can filter items from the list on the left panel, click on insert and process! The system will link the selected items with the selected vendor! I am willing to publish this tool soon, will update the article with the download link once doing some fine tuning on the utility.

In addition, imagine the documents that will be lost during the maintenance procedure and the documents that will be stuck between the workflow and Dynamics GP!
