Management Reporter – This report view contains no data.

I have been working on a Management Reporter project, for which I wanted to install and configure MR2012 CU14 from the scratch.

Completed the server and client installation, completed the Configuration Console processes, imported data from GP2015R2 (sample company) and reached a point where I wanted to test the default reports.

Ran the report and got the following message:

I checked everything, including the date range, data available in sample company and everything that I could remember. All were perfectly alright.

I was, however, getting some warning messages while the report was getting generated. Messages as follow:

This one was familiar. When we install management reporter, we get default reports along with it. It’s a nice and easy way to get started with MR, learn the concepts. However, it comes with its own headaches.

To name one (also most important), each default report row definition would have link to both Dynamics AX and Dynamics GP financial dimensions. To a GP consultant’s dismay, AX dimensions link would be placed in a column before GP dimensions link, as shown below:

Now let’s go back to the warning message. It says:

The row definition contains more than one financial dimensions link. Since the report does not use the row definition for reporting tree option, the report will use the *first* financial dimensions link to generate the report.

The first here being Microsoft Dynamics AX dimensions link. Thereby, rendering all reports with the message shown in the first screenshot on this post.

Alright, so I know the cause now. I know what I must do to get past this message. However, I had no clue HOW to do that. I mean, I know I must remove AX dimensions link column from the reports, but not sure how.

This community forum post answer from Sue tells us how to remove the link column. Too bad, this post was not marked as an answer.

I would, however, like to point to the standard & the easiest method to remove the unused link (in my case AX dimensions link).

  • Either you can go to the Edit menu and click on “Row Links” as shown below:

  • Or you can also use the tool bar button for “Row Links” as shown below:

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 10.06.30 AM

Once you click on “Row Links” from either of the above steps, you should get the following window:

Once deleted, your report definition would have only one dimensions link, i.e. to Microsoft Dynamics GP link.

Report would then show the data as expected.

Of course, this would be the case if you want to reuse the default reports. This post would be irrelevant for those who design reports from the scratch.

Happy Reporting!

Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book engineer offers inside look at what’s new

David Meego - Click for blog homepageI came across this WinBeta article a little while ago and wanted to highlight the presentation from the Microsoft Ignite conference last November.

The presentation by “Surface Blackbelt” Briand Sanderson takes you behind the scenes and shows the engineering and research & development behind the creation of the Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book devices.

The video is below and while it is just over an hour long, it is definitely worth watching.

Building Surface Pro 4 & Surface Book

 

Here is the link to the WinBeta Article:

December 2015 Special: Helping Aaron Back

David Meego - Click for blog homepageYou probably all know GPUG All-Star Aaron Back who has been contributor to the Microsoft Dynamics GP community and GPUG for many years.

Last month, I found out that his son, Ian, is unwell and his treatment is costing a lot of money.

Aaron has created a GoFundMe page to help raise some funds to cover the costs of the treatment.

IanBack

I wanted to do something to help Aaron out and was considering a personal donation, but looking at how much he needs I wanted to do something more.

To this end, I am planning to donate 10% of Winthrop Development Consultants’ December 2015 profits from selling GP Power Tools to the cause.

I am also challenging other Microsoft Dynamics GP partners in the community (both ISVs and selling partners) to help Aaron and his family in any way they can, be it via personal donation, a lump sum donation or percentage approach like I am using.

Thanks to the following partners for joining the cause and donating something (in no particular order):

Let me know if you are willing to “go all in” and join me in this endeavour and I will add your company name in this article.

Also, thanks to all the individuals who have donated.

So, please buy GP Power Tools in December and let’s give the Back family an awesome Christmas present and give back to Aaron some of what he gives to the GP Community.

Wishing Ian a fast recovery and the family a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas.

David
