Activating MDA

  • 1.  Activating MDA

    Posted 22 days ago
    I am trying to use MDA but I'm missing something.
    I have set up an Analysis Group and and Analysis Defualt for an account.
    When I use that account for a Journal Entry, the MDA button is grayed out so I cannot click to attach to the JE.
    Is there some initial setup or activation I'm missing?
    We are on GP 2018 if that makes a difference.

    Thanks!

    Hi @Robert Meade

    What does your window look like for Analysis Defaults, it should look something like this:

    Hi Robert

    Can you check to make sure the module is registered?



    Give it a whirl.

    Cheers

    It looks exactly like that except I made the analysis type required and I only have one analysis code ID.

    The problem is when I use that account in a general journal entry I cannot bring up the MDA screen.

    Thanks for looking at it!

    @Ven Sharma

    As an FYI, if the module was not registered he would not see the windows at all.

    That's one of the things I like about the registration window, if you don't want to see functionality you simply uncheck the registration.​

    Thank you  - looks like you found the problem, Ven!
    When I go to About, Options, I see Multidimensional Analysis is unchecked even though I can get to the setup screens!

    I will work with my reseller and see if they can figure out what's going on.
