We'd like to add a default value of ‘NN’ to our P.O. Number field in the Payables Transaction Entry in Great Plains Purchasing would like it to fill in by default and can edit if needed afterwards. Is it possible to add a default value and how is it done? thanks James Patt

We have a few customers that order the same item number from us but they use different customer item numbers. They use different customer numbers based on what location they want the items shipped to. In customer item maint. they only allow a one to one relationship. We can only add one customer number per our item number. Is there a way to add multiple customer numbers to our one item number.

Hi  We are in the process of implementing BOM for GP2016. We are trying to substitute a component for a finished item when doing an assembly. We noticed that the substitute button on the bottom right of the assembly is grayed out. Would anyone know why this is the case and how we can substitute a component item on an assembly without having to change the BOM.

Hi, I'm new to Great Plains, and I'm looking to get a better grasp on the purchase price variances we're incurring.  Is there a standard report I can run which will show me the item number and description that was purchased, the standard cost of the item, and the actual price of the item, and the date the variance posted.  If so, can you please direct me to where I can find this report in the system. Also what are the trigger points in Great Plains to recognize the variance (PO price vs std cost and invoice price vs PO price)? Thanks, Matt

Haven't had issues  with version upgrades or year-end upgrades in the past. I have encountered a number of custom reports that now have errors such as  "Frame "RM Statement Long Form" of report "RM Statement Long Form" references a non-existant Picture." Do you know what could be causing this? Once an image is used in Report Writer - is it embedded in the report - or does it reference it from a library or specific directory? Does Report Writer reference an image in a specific directory - could the reference be wrong? As a follow up additional comment.   I do have a local copy on one the workstations that works.   I exported the broken reports, imported onto ...

Good afternoon The Num Lock key is turning off during a checkbook calculation - Sales Transaction Distribution Entry. Press Num Lock and it works as normal, perform another Sales Transaction Distribution Entry and when the calculations start the Num Lock turns off. This happens in both our Production and Test environments, anyone else having Num Lock issues?  We have GP 2018 running on Windows 10 VDI clients. Registry is set = 2 to turn Num Lock on at start up. Num Lock stays on while working in Excel or any other application, go to perform a calculation in Sales Transaction Distribution Entry and the Num Lock turns off. Any help would be most appreciated. ...

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, and ...

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 ! The 14 th annual autumn gathering of Microsoft Dynamics GP end users & partners in North America will be a virtual one, but more importantly the ONLY get-together for us this year!  The Coronavirus pandemic has prevented us from holding events in all the amazing places we did during 2019, including our annual #GPTechConf for partners in #FabulousFargo for the very first time!  It’s been a year like no other.

Well it has happened 3 times in two weeks - people asking why paid transactions are appearing on their monthly Customer Statements.  It seems like an opportune time to get reacquainted with my old friend, the Paid Transaction Removal routine. What does it do? Move fully paid/applied transactions from the “open” status to the “history” status (if system is configured to maintain history for sales/receivables) Consolidates all balance forward transaction amounts. 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. You can usually find them working feverishly on inventory forecasts for their seasonal items long before the new season arrives. What parameters define a seasonal item? The general rule of thumb is that ...

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). Some businesses fought to fill orders, others struggled to stay solvent, and a ...
