This morning I worked with one of the customers on configuring the database backups, and stuck with an issue that after finalizing the Maintenance Plan the job been generating an error, getting into the job history I have seen the below dumb message: Unable to start execution of step 1 (reason: line(1): Syntax error) Luckily I found the below articles about this subject and it helped: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/sqlserver/en-US/dc52e0d9-af14-46b9-9904-29b9afa798cd/syntax-error-executing-maintenance-plan-job?forum=sqldatabaseengine http://www.sqlserver-expert.com/2011/08/unable-to-start-execution-of-step-1.html I found few difficulties while looking into the “package” mentioned in the resolution and therefore I though I would share a screenshot, adding a slash “” to the beginning of the text worked like a charm: Regards, — Mohammad R.

For those of you outside the United States, yesterday America went into a sort of holiday binge of food, beer and Super Bowl . Part of what makes the Super Bowl a great sporting event is the adverts aired throughout the game – in fact, the ads are a part of the Super Bowl culture as much as the half time show. Just to give you an idea of how much the sport matters, a single 30-second advert during the Super Bowl can cost up to $400 million, or $133.3K per second

I was recently asked regarding how Dynamics GP worked with Not for Profits, Microsoft has a whitepaper specifically for Not for Profit Accounting . This covers the following modules specifically for Not For Profits – Encumbrance Management allows obligations for goods, materials, and services that have been ordered but not received can identified and identified as “encumbered.” This module helps prevent overspending by ensuring that total actual expenditures plus related encumbrances (ordered goods, materials, or services) do not exceed budgeted amounts
Few days back I got mails from many customers reporting that the exchange rates feed stopped working due to an error with the host, the tool was linked to a free exchange rates provider source and therefore it is unsupported. Yesterday Mark Polino gave me a great idea to pull sources from YAHOO or GOOGLE and ignore the source we are using, and due to the large base of customers currently using this product I have redeveloped the product to count on more reliable source by readying from YAHOO which I believe will not go down for long time! YAHOO API provides the rates over a methodology that does not work with the product, therefore I had to “find/amend” a web-service that reads from YAHOO and send results back to the application and the web-service is currently hosted at our web host, I know that the host is not reliable as YAHOO but at least we can get rid of issues we used to face and minimize the downtime as it became controllable. To get the updated package, please drop me a mail and I will send it immediately! Regards, — Mohammad R.
Hi all! Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2014 Atlanta is around the corner! Unbelievable to think just a few days aback I was sending out New Year’s greetings and now we are talking about an event to be held in March, a month and few days away.
After about a decade, I had a requirement to send over a fax. Its been so long since I sent a fax, and I was too lazy to lookup the instructions to send a fax from the office. I had seen people send faxes online, and a quick google search pointed me to www.hellofax.com The fax sending experience was nice and easy, but the message below made me smile
