CBM Cash Receipt Customer GL Posting Account Error

A user reported this issue when he tried to enter a cash receipt in CBM module. Following error message prevented him from continuing further.

Screen Shot 2015-02-23 at 3.10.24 PM

This error was confirmed to be happening only for one particular customer record. For all other customers, it worked.

We basically do not have posting accounts setup for each customer or customer class. So it is absolutely no way due to missing posting accounts. Several minutes later, decided to compare customer records between this particular customer and one other customer that’s working.

REASON: Customer Class ID for this customer record was wrong and was not part of the list of customer classes that we have setup on our company. Because this class ID was wrong, posting accounts validation stopped right there and threw a message that was totally irrelevant to actual reason.

RESOLUTION: I changed the customer class ID for this customer with an existing one. User could then enter a cash receipt in CBM.

Troubleshooting issues successfully is probably the best way to end a business day!

Dynamics GP 2015 – Printing Arabic Text

If you are planning to upgrade to GP 2015 and currently having Arabic text in your database need to be printed using report writer, make sure NOT TO UPGRADE to GP 2015.

Normally for printing Arabic text in report writer, if your keyboard was language the text will be displayed as rubbish data as below:

In order to get this printed properly, we used to switch the keyboard language to Arabic and the text will back to normal as below:

However for GP 2015, the system will automatically switch the keyboard language to English upon the generation of the report, and unfortunately the same switch is occurred upon hitting the print button, therefore the Arabic text will never be printed in Arabic and customers will start nagging!

Hope that Microsoft could resolve this soon!

The Dynamics GP Blogster Best Articles of 2014

How about this 2014 year, ah? Two major releases in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 only to top off the year with the recent release of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015. More than 30 new features in 2013 R2 (over 150 if you include those released in GP 2013 RTM) and now over 120 new features in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015, including the cornerstone .NET interoperability and Service Based Architecture components, it’s no wonder why the Microsoft Dynamics GP Product Management and Product Development teams deserve a massive showing of the hands on this one! Congratulations team on a job well done.

Let’s not forget about the events either: the wildly successful Microsoft Convergence 2014 Atlanta, the hugely concurred GPUG Summit 2014 St. Louis, and what’s got to be the most anticipated partner event since the days of Stampede, reIMAGINE 2014 in Fargo. All these events drove the vision of t

Travel was also off the chain for me: Johannesburg, South Africa; St. Louis, Missouri; Fargo, North Dakota; Boston, Massachusetts; Las Vegas, Nevada; Green Bay, Michigan; Kansas City, Missouri; Shreveport, Louisiana; and the list goes on! Over 70,000 miles of airline travel, 100+ nights of hotel lodging, and tons of driving miles, ah!… and the ALS ice bucket challenge in between.

Nonetheless, every year I try to bring interesting topics to the blog, an insight into the events I attend, and definitely, those troubleshooting and development articles that are life savers when you need them most. So without further due, here’s a sample of some of the best articles you liked throughout the year (in no particular order)

2015 is sure to be a very exciting year for the Dynamics GP community.

Personally, I start the year with a business trip to Ireland, I already have commitments with Dynamic Partner Connections, and tons of webinars in conjunction with GPUG. So please stay tune to hear from those.

Until next post!

Microsoft Dynamics GP backups with Windows Azure Blob Storage Service – Follow up

As a follow up to my post yesterday (see Microsoft Dynamics GP backups with Windows Azure Blob Storage Service), an issue has been identified with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 running on SQL Server 2014 when choosing Microsoft Azure storage as the destination for the backup.

You will receive the following warning message:

The SQL Server version that you are using does not support backing up or restoring your database from Microsoft Azure storage.

I have traced the issue back to the logic in the ‘(L) RGRestoreBackupOption’ of window BackupRestore of form syBackupRestore field change script, which seems to compare the build number even after it has determined the version number is greater than SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU2 (11.0.3339). Of course, the build number for SQL Server 2014 CU4 is 12.0.2430. Since 2430 is not greater than 3339, the script sets the validation flag to false, causing the script to abort with the message indicated above.

This problem is exclusive to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 RTM (14.00.0524) running on SQL Server 2014, and cannot be replicated if you are running Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 on SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU2 or greater. Microsoft is currently aware of this situation (at least via the Dynamics GP Online Partner Technical Community Forum), but if you are

For more information on SQL Server 2014 build numbers, see Microsoft Support kb article 2936603, SQL Server 2014 build versions.

Microsoft Dynamics GP backups with Windows Azure Blob Storage Service

With the introduction of Dynamics GP 2013 R2, Microsoft delivered support for application database backups onto Windows Azure blob storage service from within GP itself.

Azure Blob storage is a service for storing large amounts of unstructured data, such as text or binary data, that can be accessed from anywhere in the world via HTTP or HTTPS. You can use Blob storage to expose data publicly to the world, or to store application data privately. Common uses of Blob storage include:

• Serving images or documents directly to a browser
• Storing files for distributed access
• Streaming video and audio
• Performing secure backup and disaster recovery
• Storing data for analysis by an on-premises or Azure-hosted service

In turn, Dynamics GP takes advantage of capabilities introduced in SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU2 to enable SQL Server backup and restore directly to the Windows Azure Blob service. See SQL Server Backup and Restore with Windows Azure Blob Storage Service for more information.

Note: Starting with SQL Server 2012 SP1 CU4, you can also use PowerShell to backup to and restore from Windows Azure Blob storage services.

As part of the backup and restore process, Microsoft Dynamics GP calls the syGPAzureBackupRestoreProcess system database stored procedure.


Configuring Microsoft Dynamics GP backups with Windows Azure Blog storage service

To take advantage of Windows Azure Blob storage service, you must begin by setting up an Azure storage account. The storage account is the starting point for all storage services. The storage account requirements are fairly straight forward: setup a URL prefix, associate a location or affinity group for your storage account, and determine the type of replication. See How To Manage Storage Accounts for additional information on replication options.

Note: The full URL will be the URL prefix followed by blob.core.windows.net.

Storage Account Setup

Upon creation of the storage account, the storage account name and its access key properties are required to authenticate to the Windows Azure Blob Storage service and its components.

Following the creation of the account, you will need a storage container. A container provides a grouping of a set of Blobs, and can store an unlimited number of Blobs. To write a SQL Server backup to the Windows Azure Blob service, you must have at least the root container created.

Container tab

Click on the Containers tab to setup a new container. Enter a name for the container, and select the type of access that will be provided to the container.



New Container setup

For more information on setting container access types, see Restrict Access to Containers and Blobs. Once the container has been setup, you should see your new container listed.

Container is now setup

Return to the storage account dashboard and click the Manage Access Keys option at the bottom of the window for the storage account you setup. You can copy the primary access key, which will be used to setup Microsoft Dynamics GP.

Manage Access Keys

In Microsoft Dynamics GP, go to Microsoft Dynamics GP | Maintenance | Backup to open the Back Up Company window. Follow these instructions:

1. Select the company you wish to backup
2. Choose Use Microsoft Azure storage as the destination for your backup
3. Enter the storage account name you created in Windows Azure
4. Paste the access key from the previous section.
5. Enter the URL to the container. The URL format is as follows:

https://storage-account.blob.core.windows.net/container-name

Back Up Company

6. Click on Verify account to validate your account settings and connectivity to the container then click OK to continue. The backup performance will depend on your internet connection speed.

Now that you have a pretty good grasp on the configuration, you can begin taking advantage of Windows Azure as a secure, always available option for your Microsoft Dynamics GP data. The best part is, the data geo-redundantly stored (if this option was selected when creating the storage account) and you no longer need to rely on tapes being exposed to damage.

Until next post!

12 Ways to become a better CRM Developer

Vaidhyanathan Mohan:

Nice post up there on Ben Hosking’s CRM Blog…

Originally posted on Hosk’s Dynamic CRM Blog:

Now and again I get asked how to become a better CRM Developer, so I thought I would create a blog to point people towards and here it is.

1.  Decide you want become a better Developer

Improving and becoming a better CRM Developer is a state of mind/attitude, you have to want to get better, you have to strive to be better every day.

It’s like trying to get someone to read a book you like, you can’t make them read that book no matter how good you say it is, it’s only when the person wants to read it.

2.  Make a plan

A plan is like a map, if you don’t use a map it’s very difficult to get to where you want to go.  A plan is the same for careers and learning skills, you need to identify the skills you want to learn and make…
