Hyphens in Dynamics GP Fixed Assets

Today’s #TipTuesday is about the Dynamics GP Fixed Assets module. I am going to discuss the restriction around the use of hyphens (dashes) in Fixed Asset IDs. Prior to GP 2013, there was no issue with hyphens and many customers who utilized Fixed Assets had created Asset IDs with them as separators. Of the numerous clients I have been to over the years, every single one of them used hyphens as it was easy to read, both on reports and in the screens (where things like underscores often get partially hidden by the UI). There was a consistency in viewing the Asset ID + suffix on reports too, since the “Full” Asset ID with the suffix displays with a hyphen. Using some other character as a separator combined with the use of a hyphen between ID and suffix just plain looks weird (to me).

GP Tech 2019 – Day 1

Day 1 of this year’s GP Tech conference was Monday, September 9th. As in previous years, this is a 2.5 day event, with very full days on the Monday and Tuesday followed by a “morning-only” set of content on the Wednesday. As I write this, it’s Wednesday and I’m catching up on my blogs to get them written and posted before I fly out this afternoon for home.

If you missed my “Pre-Day” post, you can find it here.

So, let’s get to it! It’s that time of year again – GPUG All*Star voting time! First, here is some background information for those of you who may not yet be familiar with these programs and awards.

Excel Navigation tips

Today’s #TipTuesday is yet another Excel tip. This one is about navigation, and some tips around things I use every day when I’m working in Excel. Some of these are particularly useful if you are using Excel to get a set of data ready for an integration, which often is the world I’m living in. Sometimes I’ve integrating right from Excel and sometimes I’m working with something where I need to “save as” and I need to make sure I don’t inadvertently have blank rows or columns in my data. That, in a nutshell, is the background for this post and set of tips.

Excel’s hidden gem: IFERROR

Today’s #TipTuesday is yet another Excel tip. Can you tell I’ve been working with spreadsheets a lot lately? My blogs tend to follow my work and these last 3 weeks have been no exception. As I run into things or use something I haven’t touched in a while, I tend to blog about it!

This tip is about what I believe to be a hidden gem in Excel and that is the IFERROR formula. Over the years, I have seen many people do many funky workarounds to “pre-check” if they will get an error when there is a formula that will help you out much more easily!
