If you’ve ever experienced this error when trying to view the integration logs in Integration Manager, it’s because one of two shared components is missing on the workstation – Resolution 1 Install the Report Viewer Redistributable using the link below: www.microsoft.com/…/details.aspx Resolution 2 Install the 2007 Office System Driver: Data Connectivity Components using the link below: www.microsoft.com/…/details.aspx Try one or both of these resolutions and it should fix the issue for you. And yes, you need to install the 2007 Office System Driver even though you have Office 2010 installed on the workstation. Integration Manager looks for the 2007 version. Alternatively - and I like this solution better - in Integration settings, you can direct the log to save as a local text file instead of in the IM database. IMHO, viewing the log as a text file makes it easier to analyze.

I learn something new every day. I had to release a couple dozen POs in a test environment today and thought there must be a better way to do this than print every one of them. And there is – just go to Purchasing> > Transactions> > Edit Purchase Orders , select the PO you want to release, change the status to Released and that does it. If you have multiple POs to release, just keep scrolling through them using the scroll buttons at the bottom of the window and select ‘Save Changes’ on each PO when prompted. * click image to enlarge
You read that correctly! Microsoft has decided to change the way they work with some of their utilities and tools. Previously there were charges to get access to tools or utilities like Customer Modifier and Customer Combiner (and Vendor, Account, Item etc.). On the partner side, we had to purchase those outside of the normal ordering processes (they weren’t “modules” like ordering something like Integration Manager was). They want to streamline that to eliminate some of their Direct Billing policies and that means Dynamics GP customers win! What’s Free? Well here is a list of what I know of, and it’s effective March 1, 2012. Keep in mind this has only recently been announced so don’t be surprised if your partner doesn’t know all of the details about it yet – the information is just trickling out now and not everything on Partnersource is yet updated for us

I got a request from one of my customers to have the ability to link multiple items with a vendor without the need to add them one by one and I have created this using the .Net toolkit, the screen will look like the below: The user can filter items from the list on the left panel, click on insert and process! The system will link the selected items with the selected vendor! I am willing to publish this tool soon, will update the article with the download link once doing some fine tuning on the utility.
