ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

The ALS Ice Bucket challenge has helped raise $22.9 million, 12 times the amount raised last year according to the ALS Association.

I just completed the challenge, and the donation, and would encourage you support this cause as well. Support ALS here

Modified SOP Entry window


The SOP Entry window pictured above has been modified to bring the Description up to the first line. This made the window quite wide, but my goal was to get as much of the description visible as possible. The expanded view looks almost the same as the original, except I added the Item Code field as can be seen below:


If you would like a copy of this modified window for yourself, you can download the package file containing this window here:

This is a GP2013 R2 window.

I welcome any suggestions you all may have to spiffy this up.

Until next post,

Tech Tuesdsay: Table Changes in Extender 2013

As many Extender users are looking to update to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and along with that updating Extender to 2013, there are table changes to be aware of. In the update from Extender on GP 10 or 2010 to Extender on 2013, almost all of the tables change to a new set of tables. 

What does this mean for you as you update?
If you wrote anything directly to the tables, such as SQL Views, SSRS

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!

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  -
