Recently there was a question on the forums regarding passing parameters to custom SSRS reports assigned to Dynamics GP windows. In Dynamics GP 2013, SSRS reports can be printed directly from Forms. Each window will pass a default set of parameters to the assigned reports. For an example from the Customer Master the ‘Customer Number’…


Printable Manuals for Microsoft Dynamics GP

Today, I received a case where the partner was after the Multicurrency Manuals for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013.

Quick Tip: Debugging Visual Studio Tools

Let’s jump right in. We debug our Visual Studio applications over and over; and attaching to the test environment is among the most important, and time-consuming skills we use.
