As you saw in last week’s blog, Business Analyzer can be used to select and view SQL Server Reporting Services Reports from your desktop. To view the reports though, you must have security access to the Microsoft SQL Server Reporting Services reports in Report Manager or the Microsoft SharePoint site and you also need access in SQL Server Management Studio. SQL Server Reporting Services Reports and Business Analyzer all use the same security, so once you have the security set up for the SSRS reports, it doesn’t have to be set up again to view these reports within Business Analyzer
As a Dexterity developer, I have written a number of customisations to Microsoft Dynamics GP which add additional fields to the system.
This video shows how to get Project Number, Cost Category, Contract Number and Customer Number to show with line items on the Project Accounting Alternate PO with Word Templates. (Please visit the site to view this video) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rp4NNKNYqhw Dave Dusek
We have had a few instances where Dynamics GP Word Templates will not print out to the screen when running on a citrix environment. I’m happy to say that I think we have figured out what is causing this specific issue. Symptoms: The symptoms are that you have set up Dynamics GP Word Templates, but when logged into a citrix environment, when you attempt to print the template to the screen, it appears nothing happens. Word does not open. In this scenario, the templates will not print to the printer either. Troubleshoot: The first thing that you want to do is make sure to troubleshoot the problem in GP so you make sure that you have everything set up correctly. You would want to check security so you know what report writer report is printing (modified, modified alternate, etc.), make sure you have a template set up for that report. Make sure the template is assigned to the company you are in and is set as default. In this scenario, remove any customer/vendor assignments on the templates. When the templates are assigned to customers/vendors, it complicates the scenario because there can be multiple word templates being used and you want to eliminate that for baseline testing. You can add the customer/vendor assignments back after you have the templates working. Once you have verified these things, the template should print. In this scenario, the TPElogging helps because if you have logging turned on, you should be able to see that the word doc is being created, but it’s just not opening in word. That would prove that the word doc is being created correctly. Code: I don’t want to get too technical here but I do want to shed some light on what GP is doing to get the word template to print out to the screen. This process is handled by the Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessIntelligence.TemplateProcessing.dll in your addins folder under GP. This dll handles most of the template processing. When it gets to sending the word document to the screen, the dll is using the Process.
