One of my customers reported that when they transfer the Purchase Requisition to Purchase Order, the cost they specified in the requisition for their items is not being transferred to the purchase order.
Thinking about this subject, can’t find a company who does not follow the standards in their procurement process, everyone brings 3 quotations from 3 different suppliers and selects the best fit from requirements and pricing! I found this process on Connect requested since 2010 with very limited votes! I would kindly ask for your help in voting and getting this scheduled soon, below the description of the product suggestion: I think Dynamics GP is one of the few applications in the ERP world that does not have the request for quotation functionality, the process is like this: – RFQ (enter details for items willing to purchase) – Select one or more vendors and the system should print separate RFQ for each (and prepare the system to receive responses from each) – Receive quotes from Vendors and update on system – Compare vendor’s prices against same lines in RFQ – transfer one of the quotes to Purchase order Note: The is the simplest cycle possible and there are many other advanced consideration that can be added later on like: – Issuing PO against more than one vendor quote for same RFQ – Ability to update quotation with new discounts and data maintaining original information and changes (quote version control).
When you see the window print button you expect that the information of the window you are on is being printed on a report writer report, and when one of your customers inform you that no action is being taken upon pressing the report you just feel like the user is not aware whats going on and a privileges issue should take place! Well for Purchase Requisition Entry form this is not the case! the window print is not linked to any of the available reports, clicking the button will do nothing and you will feel a little bit confused about what to be done! The button indeed does not have a report assigned, but you can design your report on SSRS and link it to this button! Just click the Small Arrow near the print button and hit “Assign Reports”, then select the report you need to link, see the below for clarification: Regards, — Mohammad R.

5 years back I have published a script that allows you to view amount in words in Arabic, what we call it “TAFQEET”, the article is published under the following link: http://mohdaoud.blogspot.com/2008/10/convert-numbers-to-arabic-words-tafqeet_5647.html I been getting many requests across the years on how to make this works for Excel and my answer was always that you cannot make it as it is an SQL based function and not a VBA. This morning I have see a comment sharing me a video that shows how to make a simple VBA script to achieve the ENGLISH amount in words and the video is below: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fYAxYtzBi5A Moving forward I decided to make the same for ARABIC language considering that I have a script that works on .NET does the same and all what I need to do is to make this works for Visual Basic for Applications and the result is below: 1. Download the function from the following path: http://www.di.jo/files/DI.bas If that file was viewed and not downloaded, please right click and click “Save Target AS”.
This morning I been thinking about the new security structure for Dynamics GP web-client user who does not have SQL Users, and how these users will interact with SQL Server, I had to go through this as I have a client who’s running a very strict policy in granting SQL permissions for domain users. Getting through this, I have created few users with multiple scenarios as below: The first user linked to domain account called that “TEST1”, but didn’t check “Web Client user only (no SQL Server Account)” The second user linked to domain account called that “TEST2”, and checked the “Web Client user only (no SQL Server Account)” option. I have noticed that the first case created an “SQL User Account” called “TEST1” and didn’t granted the domain user any access to the database, and the second didn’t create any users which been a mystery to me understanding which user will be used to access the SQL Server! To test this I have modified the GL00100 table and added a new column called “UserName” –this is for testing only, you cannot do this on GP tables!- and set the default value for this column to be “SUSER_SNAME()” function which returns the user who’s currently logged in and started my testing by creating new accounts! Logged in by TEST1 to the web client and created a new account, the result was somehow wired, the user who was recorded was “DYNSA” Logged in by TEST2 to the web client and created a new account, the result was the same, the user who was recorded was “DYNSA” as well
