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.

GP 2013 and 2015 GP Web Services "Exception message: The security object does not exist"

After moving the GPWEBSECURITY database for GP Web Services and running a repair we received the following error opening the Security Console:"Exception message: The security object does not exist. Missing Key: 25cc1a21-2cc4-4b13-a1c8-eea186fb688a"Turns out we ran the wrong repair.  DO NOT run the repair from the GP Web Services Configuration Console.  Instead, launch the GP Setup.exe from the GP installation media.  This will detect the existing install and give you the option to repair.I used information from the following link and updated it for the new web services that does not run in IIS:https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/kb/943949To determine the scopes in the ADAM database, use the Authorization Manager (Azman.msc) Microsoft Management Console (MMC) snap-in to browse the database.

Grant Permissions for Manufacturing SmartLists

When using Manufacturing in Microsoft Dynamics GP (both GP 2010 and GP 2013), people not assigned to the POWERUSER role are unable to see Manufacturing SmartLists by default - even users who are assigned MFG ADMIN and MFG_INQUIRY roles. To grant permissions for these, you need to include them with a task. You can assign the permissions to whichever task you choose. I choose to assign different SmartLists to their matching inquiry task (INQ_MFG_XXX), in case custom roles are added for which there should be limited manufacturing permissions. To add SmartLists to a Security Task: 1. Open the Security Task Setup window (Administration >> Setup >> Security >> Security Tasks) 2. Choose the Task ID for which you would like to add SmartList permissions 3. Select Product: Smartlist, Type: SmartList Object, Series: SmartList Objects 4. Check the boxes next to the SmartLists you would like to include 5. Click Save [...]

GP Manufacturing Accounting Flow: Component Transactions and MO Receipts

In GP Manufacturing, the accounting flow for inventory transactions involved in a Manufacturing Order can be tricky, because they don't all follow the same logic. Below is a summary of the accounting flow for some of the basic inventory transactions that take place during the Manufacturing process.Component Transaction Entry (Issue) Issues raw materials to production/WIP: -- Credits (decreases) the Inventory account -- Debits (increases) the WIP account To determine which inventory account to use, GP checks the Inventory account assigned to the Raw Material item. -- If this is present, it will use the account -- If it is blank, it will use the default posting inventory account To determine which WIP account to use, GP checks the WIP account assigned to the Finished Good item that is being produced: -- If the WIP account is present, it will use that account -- If the WIP account is left blank, it will [...]
