Paste function grayed out in Purchasing Transaction Entry and Distributions windows

  • 1.  Paste function grayed out in Purchasing Transaction Entry and Distributions windows

    Posted Oct 26, 2021 02:39 PM
    We are trying to copy and paste Purchasing transactions from Excel into the Purchasing Transaction Entry and Distributions windows, however, the Paste button is grayed out in both windows.  We have GP 2018, version 18.3.1200.  The Security Administrator is logged in, the Multicurrency module is enabled and Action Pane is selected under Window Command Display in User Preferences.  It's possible we have had third party modifications to the menu.  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Thank you!

    Hi Dora,

    There are some tricks to this feature!
    I would make sure you have the vendor pulled up in your window.

    Here is a blog they we wrote for the feature that talks about steps to take, especially with distributions window too
    (+) Microsoft Dynamics GP Fall 2020 - Copy and Paste Purchasing Transactions and Distributions - Microsoft Dynamics GP Community

    I would review the TIPS section, we did have one issue if you did not register multi currency it was not available either, that was fixed in March of 2021

    Tips:
    This feature will also work in Web Client.
    Just like General Ledger copy and paste, if you mark the Intercompany checkbox the Paste option is unavailable.
    If you do not have multi currency (MC) enabled (Tools | Setup | System | Registration) the Paste option is unavailable.  Fixed in Mid-Year 2021

    Thanks
