If you're reading this and use Word Templates to print GP documents (all of them), and experiencing all of a sudden some weird pop-ups when printing the documents to screen (see below), then it's because your computer was recently updated with the latest MS-Office round of new versions pushed down somewhere around early September (8th or 9th). The problem started to get noticed on the Dynamics GP Community forum around Sept 11th and was quickly acknowledged by the GP support team in Fargo as they published an official statement about the issue. The only known fix for now is to roll back the updates applied to the Office package, ...

It’s been a challenging year for everyone, no doubt about it.  Personally, I am ready for 2020 to be over with, but we can’t wrap this year officially before ‘getting together’ at Community Summit North America !

Why should I run it? It can speed up various receivables routines and processes. Customer Transaction inquiries are faster/more efficient as you can now distinguish between "open" ...

Inventory Management Rx for Seasonal Inventory By Chris Inglett, Absolute Value   As we roll into the dog days of summer, with fall lurking around the corner, many of us start to think of the upcoming shift from backyard barbeques, swimming, and other warm-weather activities to the apple-picking, leaf-watching, where’s my sweater(?) activities of autumn. Purchasing agents and supply chain managers, on the other hand, are usually a step or two ahead.

Repost from Avalara The midyear update to our annual sales tax changes report takes stock of what’s transpired in the world of sales tax since the start of the year. It also introduces emerging trends. There’s often a surprise or two — a change we didn’t see coming — but we’ve never seen anything like the first half of 2020.   COVID-19 The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic brought brick-and-mortar commerce to a screeching halt in much of the world. At the same time, it caused a spike in online sales (consumers told to stay at home needed to stock up on essentials somehow).
