Microsoft Tools: Using Dexterity, the tool behind Microsoft Dynamics GP webinar

David Meego - Click for blog homepageIt is webinar time again. Following on from my Take Ten 10@10 session on GP Power Tools last week, this week (tonight my time) I am presenting an hour long session on Microsoft Tools: Using Dexterity, the tool behind Microsoft Dynamics GP.

So please, register for the session to get an overview of Dexterity, why it exists, what it does and what it can do.

The session is scheduled for Thursday 11th February 2016 at 10:00 a.m. ET (7:00 a.m. PT) in the USA. In Australia that translates to 11:00 p.m. AWST in Perth (Friday 12th 2:00 a.m. AEDST in Sydney).

Below is the session description:

Microsoft Tools: Using Dexterity, the tool behind Microsoft Dynamics GP

Since 1994, MVP and GPUG All-Star David Musgrave has been pushing the limits of what is possible with Dexterity. His years of experience with the development tool used to create Microsoft Dynamics GP make him one of the top evangelists and educators for Developing for Microsoft Dynamics GP.

This webinar is for GPUG Members only (as the content is Dynamics GP-specific) and is part of the Microsoft Tools OneSource series.

The goal of the Microsoft Tools series is to spread education regarding Microsoft technologies to all of the Microsoft Dynamics user groups. All webinars but this one are recorded and uploaded along with the power point deck to each user groups’ website under ‘Access Webinars On Demand’.

All tips are recorded and placed on GPUG.com under ‘Access Webinars On Demand’. Use the Microsoft  tag at www.gpug.com/onesource to filter all webinars in this series.

Below is the link for this session:

Looking forward to “seeing” you there.

David

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:

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 09.44.58 AM

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:

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 09.47.43 AM

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:

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 09.56.46 AM

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:

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 10.08.15 AM

  • 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:

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 10.13.02 AM

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.

Screen Shot 2016-02-10 at 10.16.26 AM

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!

#Skyworks2016 – Australia Day 2016

David Meego - Click for blog homepageI am back in Perth after enjoying time in Sydney with family and a cruise (with other family) from Sydney around New Zealand.

Time to work on catching up with the email backlog and getting back into projects for 2016. But it might be a couple more days before the work really gets going….

Tomorrow (Tuesday, 26th January 2016) is the Australia Day 2016 public holiday, and so many people are taking today (Monday) off as well to create a four day long weekend. I know this also happens in the US around their equivalent, Independence day.

While Sydney is know around the globe for its New Year’s Eve fireworks, Perth waits for Australia Day for its Skyworks fireworks and laser show, put on by the City of Perth and Mix 94.5fm. For additional info click here.

Below are some photos from previous year’s shows as well as some videos of the 2015 show:

Reminder: December 2015 Special: Helping Aaron Back

David Meego - Click for blog homepagePublic Service Announcement

Please remember to organise your purchase of GP Power Tools before the end of December as 10% of the profits for the month are being donated to Aaron Back, GPUG All-Star and GPUG Chairman, to help cover the costs of his son’s medical treatment.

For more information, please see my original article.

I know that December can be a little slow but this is a great time to purchase and install GP Power Tools, so you can start the new year with a Microsoft Dynamics GP system that is much easier and simpler to support and administer.

You still have a few days before Christmas and time between Christmas and New Year. I would like to be able to give Aaron and his family a nice big surprise in the January.

Thank-you

David
