SmartList Favorite Doesn't Return Data

One of my associates, Karen Henkelman, and I found an interesting issue in the GP web client. We had a PowerGP Online Partner open a case complaining that a just created SmartList Favorite wouldn’t return data. We tested it on a Desktop client (PowerGP Online is SAAS, web client only GP solution) and it worked fine. The name contained an apostrophe; “Audit List JL’S”. We removed the apostrophe and problem solved.

When should you upgrade your software?

When should you upgrade your software?            In today’s business environment, we are surrounded by software that seems to be constantly changing. As a professional software developer, I spend the majority of my time working on software that I hope people will use as soon as possible. When releasing a new version of a product, I believe that the newest version is the best version for a customer to use. While the most recent version of the software might be technically best, that does not mean that your business should upgrade to it immediately. I have also spent the last few decades of my career in leadership positions within the businesses I have worked for and I know from experience that upgrades should be planned for times when it is appropriate for your business. I believe that any software you use in your business should be on a supported version of the product by [...]

How to fix a transaction for a future date in Dynamics GP

It is easy to make a mistake when entering the date on a transaction.  If you don’t catch it the transaction will not post and will be stuck in batch recovery. Open the Fiscal period for the year that is on the transaction. (Administration>>Setup>>Company>>Fiscal Periods. Recover the batch and post the transaction. Once it has posted you can either void the transaction or enter a credit memo.  If you issue a credit memo just be sure the date is the same as the original transaction date. Close the Fiscal period.Re-enter the transaction with the correct date.If you are familiar with SQL once you have opened the Fiscal period you can also:Create a credit memo for the same amount as the invoice, with the same accounts, so that the GL will be offset. Set the posting date to the same posting date as the invoiceApply the credit memo to the invoice.  This will offset the original [...]

HTML code displayed on the bottom of a navigation list pane instead of returning actual results. GP 2013 and GP 2015.

This has been an issue that Njevity has been struggling with on new GP 2013 and GP 2015 installs. The confusing part has been that it will occasionally go away. With a lot of help from Daryl Anderson at Microsoft we finally found a work around. First of all, the issue goes away as soon as an application is installed that drops a DLL file in the AddIn folder of the GP program files. For cases where there are no DLL files in the AddIns folder simply copy the Microsoft.Dynamics.GP.BusinessIntelligence.Homepage.dll file from the root of the GP installation (example: c:Program Files (x86)Microsoft DynamicsGP2013) to the AddIns sub-folder.
