  • Blog Post: Customising the Company Login window series Part 1 - Introduction

    Recently a comment from David M (not me) was posted on the Support Debugging Tool Portal ( http://aka.ms/SDT ) page asking: "We have some fairly long names for our GP companies.

  • Blog Post: Using Menus for Visual Studio Tools to launch ad hoc and custom applications

    Back in July 2008, I was attending a Developer Toolkit training course run by my friend, Steve Gray. It was during this course that the idea for Menus for Visual Studio Tools was created. Being the geek I am, I had a prototype of the concept running the next day. That code eventually became what you...
  • Blog Post: Handling Australian GST Requirements for Payables Transactions in eConnect

    As part of the handling of Australian Good and Services Tax (GST), Microsoft Dynamics GP needs to be able to track if a Tax Invoice has been received for payables transactions.

  • Blog Post: 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.

  • Blog Post: GP Web Services and Invalid Character Errors

    I am going to go over the steps to find and resolve invalid data characters in Dynamics GP that cause GP Web Services exceptions.

  • Blog Post: Differences with SQL Transaction Rollback behaviour for eConnect for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010

    A recent case has highlighted some subtle differences in behaviour with eConnect for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and the way it handles SQL transaction commit and rollback.

This is especially useful on a...
  • Blog Post: Choosing between eConnect for Microsoft Dynamics GP and Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP

    Should I write this integration using eConnect or Web Services for Microsoft Dynamics GP?

  • Blog Post: Finding Command Forms and Commands to use with Menus for Visual Studio Tools or Dexterity

    One of the issues ISV's have when integrating with the Dynamics GP menu system is to determine the name of a command list and command form to use.

    I am finally back home in Perth and the time has come to wrap up my first Convergence (and my first trip to Atlanta, Georgia, USA).

  • Blog Post: Microsoft Visual Studio Tools window does not open

    This week an ISV logged a support incident to determine why their Visual Studio Tools for Microsoft Dynamics GP (VSTools) form wouldn't open.

  • Blog Post: How to filter Dynamics GP Notes - Not!

    A month or three ago, I had a case where special characters entered into a Note on a Sales Invoice were causing the eConnect Requester to fail.
