The Tech Tuesday post today is inspired by real-world events. Every once in a while I see someone who has added a simple field or two using Extender and now wants to include this information in a calculation on a SmartList using SmartList Builder . What happens inevitably is that some of the records may not have a record in the Extender side of things
There is a new Table Finder option that will be included in the January release of SmartList Builder 2013. It will assist in finding the tables that contain the data you are looking for. You can access the tool from within any of the Builders or from any other window in Microsoft Dynamics GP. This can be really helpful if you know where the data is in a Microsoft Dynamics GP window, but aren’t sure where to look in the tables for the data so that you can use it in a setup in one of the Builder tools.

‘Twas two weeks before Christmas, when all thro’ the house, The developers were working fast like a mouse; The code had been written with an abundance of care, The SmartList Builder release was near ready to share; New Features abound which will be just great But that’s what you’d expect from your great Aussie mate While Microsoft adopted this great little tool eOne, its true parent will make it real cool The manuals are written and ready to go, The testing complete amongst all of the snow, The bugs had been logged and fixed with aplum If only this town had just a little sun The calls had been made to all partners of import Training repeated until all had been taught The website was ready to collect AEP from all Those wonderful customers both big and small In the history to date will this transition Go down as one really smooth mission, The team is ready and prepared to show That great code was written at 30 below Some partners started selling a little too soon And while we had to hide it, we were over the moon Under cover our friends developed a designer Which truth be told should have been significantly finer There were rumors about an imposter who’s free That was built for the companies that were oh so weee All our good partners were knocking at our door Stating they understood that you get what you pay for So at this time of year when you start to relax Be sure that eOne has been working to the max All 13,000 customers that are our great fans Can go into Christmas knowing SLB in in safe hands.
With the new release of SmartList Builder on Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013, you will be able to click the New button in SmartList and have it open SmartList Builder directly so that you can create a new SmartList. You can still get to SmartList Builder as you always have as well, this will just be a fast way there if you have SmartList open. When you click the New button, it will open SmartList Builder and allow you to start setting up a new SmartList. When you save that new SmartList Builder setup, SmartList will automatically be updated because SmartList is still open in the background. For those that aren’t familiar with the New button, this was added to SmartList in GP 2013 Service Pack 2 for use with SmartList Designer. If you have SmartList Builder installed, the New and Modify buttons will be used for SmartList Builder instead of opening SmartList Designer.
