Canadian Payroll issues and fixes

Today I have 2 issues to write about relating specifically to Canadian Payroll in Dynamics GP; things that a couple of my clients have recently run into that are fairly common and easy fixes.

Issue #1 is regarding stuck batches and the message “The batch is currently in use – Please wait until the other user is finished”.

Issue #2 is regarding permissions during the Generate Cheques routine and the message “There is an error in the Transmission Header – Incorrect Length”.

A new season begins…

Yesterday I went golfing, and it was the first day that really had that “autumn turning to winter” feel about it.  It was about 8 degrees Celsius when I teed off, and yes, I froze my backside off in the process.  But the sun came out and gradually I only needed 3 layers to keep warm. ; )  (Such is life in Canada when you want to golf in October!)

October 1st also is a new season business-wise: the new Microsoft partner requirements officially begin.  For my firm, that means I officially do not meet the requirements to be a reseller anymore.  This isn’t new, it hasn’t “crept up” or caught me off-guard… no, partners have been well aware of the changes for many months now.

Canadian Payroll – some ROE fields demystified

A client of mine had a great question for me last week on the ROE (Record of Employment) form that I couldn’t answer off the top of my head.  I took the opportunity to research and test to answer the question and figured it is not an uncommon question, so I may as well share the info.

Before I begin, I am not a payroll guru, I simply understand how the payroll modules work in Dynamics GP.  This is not meant to be a “how to complete your ROE” form article.  I worked for a few years with an actual payroll guru, who in her own words, could make Canadian Payroll sing!  (RW, you know who you are!)

Excel Report Builder – bug in SQL views created

I’m not sure why, but I always seem to find the really obscure bugs in GP, the ones that really don’t affect many others.  I guess it’s called a gift. 🙂

Today, I found another one that affects GP10 (although apparently has been resolved – I can’t verify that yet) and a slight variation of the same for GP2010.

Kudos to all the regular bloggers out there!

A very short off-topic article. When I first started blogging, I thought weekly posts was a good goal, and it seemed pretty easy to keep up with.  I had a long list of things I wanted to talk about at some point, no shortage of ideas!  I was set!

All was good until I went to the Tech Conference in Fargo in March… then I started writing a blog each day about my experiences.  So much information to talk about, so little time!  Upon returning home I had so many ideas I didn’t know where to start, and didn’t write much at all.  And then time has quietly slipped by…
