How to pass parameters to custom SSRS reports activated to print from the Dynamics GP windows

Viswanathan Neelakantan - Click for blog homepageRecently there was a question on the forums regarding passing parameters to custom SSRS reports assigned to Dynamics GP windows.

In Dynamics GP 2013, SSRS reports can be printed directly from Forms. Each window will pass a default set of parameters to the assigned reports.

For an example from the Customer Master the ‘Customer Number’ will be passed as a parameter. When the assigned SSRS report is selected to print, Dexterity will build the URL for the report and assign the parameter value (Customer Number) passed from the window to the SSRS Report. In the case of custom SSRS reports to have the parameter values getting passed from the Dynamics GP windows, the Parameter(s) name should exactly match with the Parameter(s) name passed from the window.

For an example: if you have a custom SSRS report which accepts SOP Number and SOP Type as a parameter. The Parameter names in the SSRS report should be SOPNUMBE and SOPTYPE for SOP Number and SOP Type respectively.


 
Once you specify the Parameter Names correctly, the Dexterity code will build the URL and assign the parameter values from the window.

In the next post we will see how it can be customized if we want to pass custom parameters.

Until then

Record the Bar Code in the Item Code field in Inventory

 

We’re all looking for fields we can use for something else without bringing the system down. Inventory is a popular area where we never seem to have enough fields. How many times have you looked through that Item Maintenance window looking for a field you can ‘re-purpose’. I always use the Item Code field. It’s a 15 character string field, but it’s not visible on the window. It’s been in the table for eons, but imagethe powers that be never exposed it on the window. Well, we all have Modifier now, so that’s a quick and easy way to reveal the field .

Here’s my window – I’ve got Item Code in a field above Item Class, but you can put it anywhere you like.

That’s my tip for today!

Until next time,

Leslie

Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1, Cortana and Car Bluetooth

David Meego - Click for blog homepageMy son sent me a YouTube video today that got me really excited, so I had to share his discovery.

My car is a lovely white 2009 BMW 125i coupe. It is my “Mid Life Crisis” car after I had my previous car for 14 years.

 

While I really like the car, there has always been one thing that really frustrated me…. The built in Bluetooth system would only dial pre-recorded voice tags. I could also twiddle with knobs to select numbers, but that is not hands free. I could not call numbers by voice and even though I could respond to a text message, I could not initiate a new one.

I just want a way to use the phone’s voice dialling system, or more recently a way to activate Cortana.

Well, the latest Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 recently released to people on the Developer Preview has solved this problem. I have set it up and it works and it is brilliant.

Basically, you can add a voice tag to your car’s Bluetooth for Cortana and dial her number 555-555-9876 and she will take over.

Check out the video from Windows Phone Central below:

Enjoy

David

PS: Can you work out what the custom number plate means? (hint: the plates were from my previous car which was a green fastback hatch). Post your answers in the comments.
