New Modified Dictionary Update Requirement for all GP 10.0 MSP Releases


David MeegoA new requirement has been added to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 service pack, hotfix and compliance release install process.  All modified reports and forms must be updated in Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities following the database update.  In the past this was only a requirement for the major release update, such as from GP 9.0 to GP 10.0.  Because of data model changes, etc. that are now in the MSP patch files, the modified reports and forms must also be updated. This new process does not apply to Microsoft Dynamic GP 9.0.


PLEASE NOTE: If a user launches into Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 without updating the modified dictionaries, they WILL NOT get prompted to update the files.  Therefore, the user might see errors running reports and accessing forms.  If you have a case where a user is getting errors running a report or accessing a form following a service pack, hotfix, or compliance update, please ask if they went through the modified dictionary update process following the MSP patch install.


This new process has been added to the U.S. Payroll/Canadian Payroll Documents and the 10.0 Hotfix Install Guide.  A new Hot Topic has also been published.  The current hot topic indicating that GP 10.0 patches may damage the reports and forms will also be updated with this new process.

    Hi David,

    The links on this page do not point to valid places any longer.  Can you update them?

    Cheers!
