It has been a long time since I shared a Quick Tip for Visual Basic for Applications (VBA), but I have had this one waiting for me to write up for a while. When using VBA on a window with ActiveX Data Object (ADO) to connect to SQL Server to read and/or write data to tables, the best practice is to open the ADO connection on the Window_BeforeOpen() event and to close the ADO connection using the Window_AfterClose() event
If you are new to Microsoft Dynamics GP development or have been working only with Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) or Visual Studio Tools, or even if you dabble in Dexterity, but have not had formal training, now is your chance to get properly trained in Dexterity. Dexterity is the native development environment for Microsoft Dynamics GP and the only development/customisation tool that is fully supported on the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client. Even if you don’t plan to develop in Dexterity, understanding Dexterity and how Dynamics GP windows are constructed is invaluable knowledge when working with the development tools other than Dexterity.
Kelly Youells and her team at Microsoft Dynamics Support and Services blog, have just started a fantastic series of posts – Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Upgrade Blog Series Schedule!! I highly recommend checking it out. I attended Kelly’s session at Convergence and she had some fantastic insights. Here’s a summary of notes I created for my quick reference – Upgrade Paths from GP 10, GP 2010 to GP 2013- If you are on GP 2010, you must be on at least build 11.00.1860 which is after GP2010 SP2 In order to upgrade from GP10 to GP2013, you must be on at least GP10 build 10.00.1779 which is after GP10 SP5 If you are upgrading from GP 9, you need to first upgrade to GP 10 or GP 2010
Yes, I am sorry to report that due to the global political correctness movement and the general lack of a sense of humour, governments around the world have agreed to skip past the first of April in an effort to cancel April Fool’s Day. It is sad that the world has gone this way, but ever since the BBC told us about the 1957 Spaghetti Harvest (see video below), there has been a downward spiral of jokes played on the world by individuals and corporations. (Please visit the site to view this video) The BBC even went as far as showing us the newly discovered colony of flying Penguins and then claimed that they were fake.
For quite some time I had been running into this error when attempting to access the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Web Management Console application from a Windows 8 machine.
