Tips for Using the Control Panel Applet and Service for Dexterity Source Code Control

Recently, Rob Anderson and I presented the “What’s New in Dexterity for GP 2010 R2″ session at the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Conference in Fargo, so I thought I’d share some of that information with you through a series of posts. One question that comes up a fair amount of the time is around using and saving information with the Control Panel applet for Dexterity Source Code Control especially on machines that have UAC (User Account Control) turned on so I thought I’d tackle that topic first. The key piece of information to remember is that on operating systems that have UAC turned on, the Control Panel applet needs to be run with elevated privileges or it will not be able to write the settings correctly to commit your changes

Troubleshooting printing issues with Microsoft Dynamics GP

Just lately, I have seen a number of inquiries over the various forums on printer support for Microsoft Dynamics GP (usually, versions 10.0 and 2010). If you have been in the channel as an ISV, partner, or customer since the days of the former Great Plains Software, you probably still remember that in the past testing of Microsoft Dynamics GP included exhaustive testing of a number of printers for compatibility. In fact, leading up to the release of version 10.0, it was not uncommon to see the now infamous Printer Compatibility List, which would outline an extensive list of printers tested for all sort of “maneuvers” including large print jobs, paper handling, character blurriness, and so on.

Off Topic: Internet Phone Scam

Here is another off topic article for you. In Australia and around the whole world, there is an Internet scam where you receive a phone call from a “Computer Technician” (sometimes identified as from Microsoft) who proceeds to explain that your computer is infected with malicious software (viruses & trojans) and that hackers are attacking your computer. Well, I received on of these phone call recently and so I played along for a bit.

Microsoft Dynamics GP Manufacturing – Accounting Transactions Part II

In my previous post on Dynamics GP Manufacturing Accounting Transactions, I have explained about standard accounting entries generated from  Dynamics GP Manufacturing for Average Perpetual items.
Now I will extend the same exercise by some other setup options
Background/Setups:
The setup option considered for the accounting transactions example consists the followings

1.    Machine & Labor Marked Auto Back flush
2.    Inventory Items using “Periodic Valuation Method” ( FIFO OR LIFO )
      Standard costing ( Periodic Valuation) values inventory at a cost based on the standard cost assigned to an item, plus eight other factors:
      Inventory – Material Fixed Over Head ( FOH )
      Inventory – Material Variable Over Head ( VOH )
      Labor Cost
      Labor Fixed Over Head ( FOH )
      Labor Variable Over Head ( VOH )
      Machine Cost
      Machine Fixed Over Head (FOH )
      Machine Variable Over Head( VOH )

Summary:
There are three Main Transactions from manufacturing

1.    Component Transaction Entry ( Issuance Of Material )
2.    MO Receipts ( WIP )
3.    MO Receipts ( FG )

And One Additional Transaction

4.    MO Closing ( In Case Of Variance )

Details:
Here is the details about the above transaction types with respect to a standard process of MO

Step 1:   Bill Of Material Setup
a.    No Accounting Transaction
Step 2:   Manufacturing Order Creation
b.    No accounting transaction
Step 3:   Component Transaction Entry ( Issuance Of Material )
a)    Issuance Entry
Account
Debit
Credit
Inventory           
Inventory- Material FOH
Inventory- Material VOH
WIP- Material              
WIP- Material – FOH
WIP- Material – VOH 
b)    Reverse Issuance
Account
Debit
Credit
Inventory           
Inventory- Material FOH
Inventory- Material VOH
WIP- Material              
WIP- Material – FOH
WIP- Material – VOH 
Step 3:   MO Receipt
a)    WIP For Machine & Labor
Account
Debit
Credit
WIP-Labor                    
WIP-Labor-FOH           
WIP-Labor-VOH           
Applied-Labor
Applied-Labor-FOH
Applied-Labor-VOH
WIP-Machine               
WIP-Machine-FOH      
WIP-Machine-VOH     
Applied-Machine
Applied-Machine – FOH
Applied-Machine – VOH
b)    FG Entry
Account
Debit
Credit
WIP-Labor          
WIP-Labor-FOH
WIP-Labor-VOH
Inventory-Labor
Inventory-Labor-FOH
Inventory-Labor-VOH
WIP-Machine          
WIP-Machine-FOH    
WIP-Machine-VOH
Inventory-Machine
Inventory-Machine-FOH
Inventory-Machine-VOH
WIP – Material
WIP – Material FOH
WIP – Material VOH
FG-Inventory
FG-Inventory FOH
FG-Inventory VOH
Step 4:   MO Close ( In Case Of Variance & its depend the type of variance as well)
Account
Debit
Credit
WIP-Labor          
WIP-Labor-FOH
WIP-Labor-VOH
Variance -Labor
Variance -Labor-FOH
Variance -Labor-VOH
WIP-Machine          
WIP-Machine-FOH    
WIP-Machine-VOH
Variance -Machine
Variance -Machine-FOH
Variance -Machine-VOH
WIP – Material
WIP – Material FOH
WIP – Material VOH
Variance – Material
Variance – Material FOH
Variance – Material VOH
Inventory Cost & Sales For Periodic Valued Items:
For Periodic Valued items, system maintain inventory cost in nine main buckets
      Inventory – FG
      Inventory – FG FOH
      Inventory – FG VOH
      Inventory – Labor
      Inventory – Labor FOH
      Inventory – Labor VOH
      Inventory – Machine
      Inventory – Machine FOH
      Inventory – Machine VOH
       
So when you prepare sales for Periodic valuation method finished goods, system will record the sales (COGS) in the following detailed manner
Account
Debit
Credit
Sales
Accounts Receivables
Inventory
Inventory – FOH
Inventory – VOH
Inventory Labor
Inventory – Labor- FOH
Inventory – Labor- VOH
Inventory Machine
Inventory – Machine- FOH
Inventory – Machine- VOH
COGS-Material
COGS-Material – FOH
COGS-Material – VOH
COGS-Labor
COGS-Labor – FOH
COGS-Labor – VOH
COGS-Machine
COGS-Machine – FOH
COGS-Machine – VOH

I hope this gives a detailed idea about manufacturing transactions with respect to periodic valuation.
