Why does the JE description say “Receivings Transaction Entry”?

This question came up in a forum recently – not in this exact form – but essentially the question was “where can you change the description of a transaction from a Dynamics GP Receivings Shipment or Shipment/Invoice”?

The short answer is, it’s very well hidden but it is there, and most users don’t see it and generally it stays at the default value which is “Receivings Transaction Entry”.  That means if you print transaction descriptions on a Accounts Payable cheque or EFT remittance, that’s what you see.

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.
