David Meego - Click for blog homepageHey Developers… Are you attending the GPUG Summit 2017 conference in Nashville, Tennessee in October? If so, this article is to let you know about Microsoft Dynamics GP related Developer content at the conference.

I asked why there was not much content for developers at GPUG Summit and I was told that there are not many developers in attendance. I disagreed and requested a session for Developers, which Bob McAdam promptly organised … thanks Bob. 🙂

VBA: DUOS data stored in the wrong database after switching companies


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

A while ago I had a case where the customer was storing data in the DUOS (Dynamic User Object Store) table from a VBA (Visual Basic for Applications) customisation. Everything worked fine until the users switched companies. After switching company the VBA customisation would still be connected to the DUOS table in the previous company’s database. If the user exited Microsoft Dynamics GP and logged back in, the DUOS in the correct database was used.

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.

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?”
