Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2: VBA and the Action Pane

Lucas Miller - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article Lucas Miller originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

Hello!

I just want to first take a second to introduce myself since this is my first post on the Developing for Dynamics GP blog.  My name is Lucas Miller and I’ve been supporting Microsoft Dynamics GP since 2005.  Like much of the team I’m based out of Fargo, ND, USA.  I’ve been married for almost 2 years and my wife and I are expecting our first in just under 3 weeks as of this writing.  My main focus has been on the system side, but the last couple years I’ve been focusing on import tools (e.g. Integration Manager and eConnect) and I was deeply involved in the Dynamics GP 2013 Web Client development and readiness efforts.

Today, I received a case where the partner was after the Multicurrency Manuals for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013. I have noticed that the later versions of Dynamics GP don’t have all the printable manuals shipped with them.

Alice Newsam - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article Alice Newsam originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

Hello, my name is Alice Newsam and I am software engineer on the Dynamics GP team focusing on Dexterity and I have a question for you:

Have you ever thought to yourself while working in Dexterity “I know there’s a .NET class that does this. It would be handy to access that right about now.” or “If only I could increase the string size to hold that data.”?

Well read on because you’ll be excited to learn about a feature that the GP Development team is currently working on for the GP 2015 release: .NET Interop.

Recently a comment from David M (not me) was posted on the Support Debugging Tool Portal page asking:

“We have some fairly long names for our GP companies. Well, when logging onto GP, the second “Company Login” screen cuts off the company names too short for us. The entry field for companies allow for longer strings (65 Characters) but only displays 31 characters on the pull-down list. There is plenty of real estate on this window going unused. Can anyone think of a way to enhance/fix this to display more of the company name?”

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 R2 updates to Report Writer Functions

David Meego - Click for blog homepageThis is a reposting of an article I originally wrote on my Developing for Dynamics GP blog.

You might remember the story about how I created a suite of Report Writer functions and got them added to the version 7.0 Dynamics.dic core dictionary. The aim for these functions was to make it easier for partner consultants and customers to modify the reports without needing custom scripting in Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) or Dexterity. They are documented in the Report Writer Functions document in the Software Developers Kit (SDK).
