Web Client – Date Fields “Please check and reenter the date”

If you are using the web client, you might be going through the message in the subject, this is annoying for users with too many daily transactions!

As reported by one of my customers! This issue occurs only when you have the date format with string month (dd-MMM-yy) like the below:

Just make sure that the month is numeric (dd-MM-yyyy) and you will get rid of this message!

Tech Tuesday: Excel Report Builder and Office 365

Excel Report Builder and Office 365 interact a little bit differently than a local installation of Office or SharePoint.

Excel Report Builder and Office 365 SharePoint

Currently, Excel Report Builder will not publish directly to a SharePoint site on Office 365.

You can publish them locally and upload them to the SharePoint library. You can also sync the local folder and the SharePoint library

Workflow 2.0 “OR” Operator not working

While working on the Dynamics GP 2013 R2 workflow, I realized that the “OR” operator is not working properly, take a look into the below example:

Step 1: Approval By User X –> Only when the Requester is “User 1″ OR “User 2″
Step 2: Approval By User Y –> Only when the Requester is “User 3″ OR “User 4″

When you submit the requisition it goes for both User X & User Y, this is for both the Requisition and the Purchase Order as well!

I reported this to the connect website, hope they will fix this in the upcoming 2015 release.

Read the blog here as Martin touches on his session he will be hosting at the reIMAGINE event in Fargo next week and how after attending you will never lose a deal through a demo again – ultimately turning yourself into a presales superstar!

Excel to GP – GL Transactions with Analytical Accounting

I know Mahmoud M. AlSaadi very well! He is a colleague and friend, I know very well his experience in Excel and SQL, I been watching Mahmoud last few months hardly collecting his experiences to make something and expected the thing to be big, he finally worked out his master piece and it was really amazing finding such a process in Dynamics GP.

He has created some refreshable sheets on a workbook that reads data directly from your GP database, and used this to validate a default sheet that represents your new GP GL Transaction Entry! Instead of manually creating transactions with complicated Analytical Accounting information, you just fill the Excel and his tool will automatically generate the macro needed to fill transactions inside GP.

Needless to say, it is a free tool that is shared on his blog post below:

http://mahmoudsaadi.blogspot.com/2014/11/analytical-accounting-entry-excel-to.html

I would advise you watch the below video and go to the download page to get your copy:

I would say good job Mahmoud! Looking to see you with us at the MVPs board soon.
