Management Reporter – Misspelled Account Categories

This would be second Management Reporter post in a row. This also is about the default reports and how to troubleshoot the issues pertaining to the default reports.

I have an Australian edition of GP installed. Most of the terminologies (such as “Fiscal/Financial”, “Realized/Realised”, etc) are localised in GP. However, default reports in Management Reporter still are in US English, if I am not wrong.

Consider the following default balance sheet row definition:

I was wondering why balance on this account did not show up on the report. After several minutes, I realised that the account category was misspelled, compared to what’s there in GP. Notice that on the report definition it is “Amortization” with a ‘z’ and in GP it is “Amortisation” with a ‘s’.

After changing the categories with correct ones, by referring to GP, the report started showing the correct figures.

This post is relevant only if you reuse the default reports. It’s irrelevant otherwise.

Happy Reporting!

Excel Copy/Paste feature not working on General Entry modified window

If you have grown used to the relatively new Excel Copy/Paste feature in the General Ledger Transaction Entry, you are probably enjoying the benefits of collecting journalized spreadsheets from around the company and simply integrating these into Microsoft Dynamics GP without too much effort.

Excel Copy/Paste in GL Transaction Entry window

The fact is, not having to run an integration from another tool for something apparently very simple, always seems to be the way to go.

Recently, however, I ran into a situation where this window had been customized with Modifier (but the same can be said for a third party alternate version of window) by a customer. The customer reorganized a few fields within the window and added a couple others with Modifier to address some specific business needs. As it turned out, the Excel Copy/Paste functionality no longer worked, even though the target fields remained the same. Reverting security to the original window rendered the feature usable once more.

If you must modify this window _and_ still require the Excel Copy/Paste feature, you will need to create an additional user with access to the original (core) window. This is very similar to what’s required for Integration Manager to function when a window has been modified with Modifier or changed by a third party product.

Well, now you know! Happy copy/pasting!

Until next post!

OFF-TOPIC: Windows 10 and Microsoft File Transfer Manager (FTM) Issues (UPDATE)

Originally posted on Dynamics GP – Learn & Discuss:

This is my first post from Perth, WA. It’s been an excellent journey and so far so good. More about my Perth life later.

This is something that I never experienced before. When you download any file from PartnerSource or CustomerSource, Microsoft would let you do that only through it’s File Transfer Manager program. If you have that installed already, any download initiation would first invoke this program and then let you set the path/folder to take in that download and etc.

However, when I tried to do that from my new Windows 10 machine, the FTM did not open. I tried to figure that out, but later remembered this same issue happening on my Windows 8.1 machine.

Basically, from Windows 8.1, for some reason, calling the FTM from Internet Explorer worked only on a 32 bit Internet Explorer.

Looks like Microsoft has not fixed that yet. If you are wondering why your FTM…

GP2015 R2 Upgrade – GP Utilities “SynchronizeTableData()” Error & Fix

This issue has already been reported and it’s also been addressed. I would like to post this still. To act more like a pointer. It’s quite crucial in nature.

I have been testing GP2015 R2 upgrade on my test environment when I faced the following error message:

Screen Shot 2015-07-27 at 6.10.32 PM

Quite evidently, upgrade didn’t go through after. I remembered this being posted on our GP Support & Services blog. Dug the post and got the solution.

Here’s the post: Known Upgrade Issues When Upgrading To Microsoft Dynamics GP 2015 R2

Please note that this has been fixed already and is available with June 2015 Update.
