First reason to attend Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2014: Fun.

While Microsoft Dynamics Convergence can be fun – in fact, it’s a lot of darn fun! – this time around I am referring to American indie pop band FUN. – yes, it’s stylized as fun with the period at the end, so you could say “fun, period!”, just making stuff up as I go along. Fun. will be performing at the Convergence Celebration event on Thursday, March 6, 2014

From left to right: Andrew Dost (Guitar), Nate Ruess (Sampler), Jack Antonoff (Guitar)

Fun., based in New York City, was formed by Nate Ruess, formerly of The Format. After the breakup of The Format, Ruess formed Fun with Andrew Dost and Jack Antonoff, of Anathallo and Steel Train, respectively. Fun has released two albums: Aim and Ignite in August 2009 and Some Nights in February 2012.

The band is best known for three hit singles: Grammy Award-winning “We Are Young” (featuring Janelle Monáe), “Some Nights“, and “Carry On“. “We Are Young” reached number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 and Digital Songs charts. It also peaked at number one in the United Kingdom. “Some Nights” was released as the album’s second single in June 2012, peaking at number three on the Hot 100 chart and becoming Fun’s second Top 10 single, as well as the band’s second song to reach platinum status in the United States.

On February 10, 2013, Fun won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist and won the Grammy Award for Song of the Year for “We Are Young”. Additionally, Fun was a nominee for four other Grammy Awards: Record of the Year and Best Pop Duo or Group Performance (both for “We Are Young”) along with Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album (both for Some Nights).

With that said, here is the video of the Song of the Year, “We are Young”.

Don’t forget to register for Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2014 in Atlanta.

Until next post!

The Dynamics GP Blogster Best Articles of 2013

Well, this year was quite the year in the Microsoft Dynamics GP world! Everything from partner readiness training events for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client around the US., to Convergence in New Orleans from which I happened to walk away with a severe case of pinkeye (side note: what was it with that city? I heard of more than 100 people attending the Conference walking away ill with anything ranging from stomach flues, to fever, to pinkeye, to…well you get the point), to the actual launch of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 and the web client, to the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift in Fargo, ND, to the GPUG Summit in Tampa, to the MVP Global Summit in Seattle which counted for the first time with Microsoft Dynamics GP content. Who could also forget the release of the Business Analyzer Windows Store app and the marathon of features released with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 SP2, forcing my dear friend Pam Misialek to write another set of Feature of the Day articles.

Wow! Just going through it all makes me tired since I attended all, but the Tech Airlift. Not to mention, I delivered Web Client training to partners in South America on behalf of Microsoft which took me to Chile and Venezuela and put on a 6-city Dexterity training roadshow on behalf of my company, IntellPartners.

By the time you read this article, I will have written a collective 71 articles for this year (I know, right! What a slacker, considering last year I ended with 101 articles), posted over 5000 replies to forums, accumulated over 30 virtual badges of some sort, and participated in over 30 projects with customers and partners.

However, what I always seem to come back to is you! You the reader is really what keeps me going. You come to this site from all corners of this world. Some of you I have met in person at the very same events I mentioned above. Some of you are my clients, some of you are partners looking for answers. Some of you simply find this site by accident through an unrelated search and somehow you manage to come back for some strange reason, but hey, I am not complaining! To all of you a big THANK YOU! So without further dues, here are the articles you liked the most this year (in no particular order):

1. Microsoft Dynamics GP on Windows Azure. Who knew so many of you were interested in Azure hosting. In this article I went through the process of provisioning all the way to installing Microsoft Dynamics GP web client in a Windows Azure environment – not without the snags. I have to say I learned a lot in the process and may be revisiting this very same topic next year.

2. Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2013 New Orleans. This Convergence was the biggest yet with tons of product launches and customers success stories. It was also special for me as I participated for the first time in the Microsoft Dynamics GP General Session event.

3. Unable to Access Snap-In Config Data Store. Tell you what… So many people wrote me to thank me for a solution to this problem. HTTP Activation, will never forget that… ever!

4. Troubleshooting the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client. After Convergence, everyone came back pumped up wanting to tackle Web Client, if only to test drive it. However, it wasn’t without it’s difficulties, so this was the reason to write this series.

5. How to Reset Business Analyzer Settings. Playing with BA certainly forced a lot of you to think about how to reset the app settings as opposed to install and uninstall each time. Thank goodness we found an answer together.

6. SmartList Designer. With the launch of GP 2013 SP2 came SmartList Designer which had a lot of you SmartList Builder fans freaking out. I think it’s clear by now that SmartList Builder rules the world of build your own, but you cannot negate the fact that SmartList needed a little face lift and that Designer is a nice addition to it.

7. Rendering WinForms in Microsoft Dynamics GP Web Client. GP 2013 SP2 also had some nice surprises for developers, like the ability to render your WinForms in the Web Client. This certainly alleviated some of the heartaches suffered by many ISVs after the first announcements went out in 2012 that WC would not support form-based VST customizations.

8. GPUG Summit 2013. It seems that most of you enjoy my traveling experiences around conferences. Interestingly enough, I get more visitors to my blog when I relate inside conference experiences than when I do articles on other topics. The GPUG event wasn’t any different, especially knowing that it was in the beautiful city of Tampa.

9. How to display parent company information on SOP documents. Not sure if you liked this one because you were having an issue or because it was done using the Support Debugging Tool. Whatever your reasons, you expressed liking the elegance of the solution. All fine by me ;-)

10. Microsoft MVP Global Summit 2013. The MVP Summit drew your attention just as much as any other conference I had blogged about. Frankly, it was a unique experience which I hope I can get back to in the upcoming 2014. Also love the fact that it was moved to nice time of the year (as in less cold!).

Not sure what 2014 writing will look like. However, quite a bit of events are coming to this site: Microsoft Dynamics Convergence 2014 in Atlanta, Georgia (register now); GPUG Summit 2014 in St. Louis, Missouri. The bottom line, I can’t wait to fill you in with my experiences and hopefully some insight into product development (within what I can disclose).

So let’s get ready for 2014 and keep up the readership!

How to get rid of negative payment transactions in Dynamics GP

A few versions ago Microsoft introduced the ability to enter a negative payment (Cash Receipt) for a customer in Microsoft Dynamics GP. I have now worked with a number of customers that have these negative payments sitting on customer accounts who needed help getting rid of them. Below is what this typically looks like when you’re looking at the customer’s transactions:


The customer balance is zero, but they have these two transactions are sitting there unapplied – kind of messy, as they print out on statements and you may not want customers to see this. Plus if you do any kind of reporting on unapplied transactions, these will keep showing up on there. Unfortunately, as simple as it seems it should be to apply these to each other, you cannot. Remember in Dynamics GP you can only apply a credit transaction (like a Payment, Credit Memo or Return) to a debit transaction (like an Invoice or Debit Memo). You cannot apply a payment to a payment, nor can you apply an invoice to an invoice. So, what to do?

Well, first get yourself a cup of whatever beverage you like drinking when you’re doing tedious, mind numbing work, then follow the steps below. I have added navigation paths and screenshots for each step to illustrate (click on each screenshot or gallery to see a bigger, clearer version). Also, I am using the same document and GL date for all of these, I would recommend you do the same. In fact, it might be easier to change your GP user date upfront if you are looking to use something other than the current date.

  1. Create a Debit Memo for more than the amount of the negative payment amount. I usually double it and round up to be safe. Debit AR and credit a Suspense account. (Transactions | Sales | Transaction Entry)
    debit memo
    debit memo GL
  2. Create a Credit Memo for a penny less than the Debit Memo in step 1. Debit the same Suspense account that you used in step 1 and credit AR. (Transactions | Sales | Transaction Entry)
    credit memo
    credit memo GL

  3. Post the Debit Memo and Credit Memo. (Transactions | Sales | Receivables Batches)post
  4. Apply the Credit Memo from step 2 to the Debit Memo in step 1. (Transactions | Sales | Apply Sales Documents) apply01
  5. Apply the negative payment to the Debit Memo. (Transactions | Sales | Apply Sales Documents) apply02
  6. Apply the positive payment to the Debit Memo. This will leave a penny balance on the Debit Memo. (Transactions | Sales | Apply Sales Documents) apply03
  7. Change the writeoff account for underpayments to Suspense (or the account you used for steps 1 and 2). You can either change this at the customer level (Cards | Sales | Customer | Accounts ) or the company level, if you are doing this for multiple customers at the same time (Microsoft Dynamics GP | Tools | Setup | Posting | Posting Accounts | Sales).
    customer accounts
    posting accounts
  8. Make sure writeoffs are allowed for this customer. (Cards | Sales | Customer | Options) customer options
  9. Use Sales Write Off routine to write off the remaining $0.01. You can be very specific here and only choose to write off the one customer/transaction desired. If you have been using a date other than your GP user date for the transactions in the steps above, you may want to change the GP user date now to match what you used, since this routine will run as of the GP user date. (Microsoft Dynamics GP | Tools | Routines | Sales | Write Off Documents)
    write off
    write off preview

  10. (Optional) Change the writeoff account back on either the customer or the posting account setup.

That should do it. While the process is quite messy, your customer now does not have any transactions with unapplied amounts:


Another benefit of this process? After going through it a few times you will never want to enter another negative payment. :-)
