New Licensing Procedures

Microsoft Dynamics GP Business Ready Licensing (BRL) or Module Based Licensing (MBL) Customers, current on their service plan, must contact their Partner to request their Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 registration keys. Registration keys will not be visible in CustomerSource until an order has been placed and completed for Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013.

Partners can place their Customer’s order by following these instructions. Once the order is placed, the Customer will be able to see their registration keys in CustomerSource. 

A. These customers can transition upgrade to Perpetual Licensing via a LMT Upgrade if their current Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 VOICE First Registration Date is prior to October 1, 2012. The Customer will receive like functionality (per the LMT Upgrade Rules as defined in the Perpetual Upgrade Policy) and their service plan end date will remain the same at no additional cost. 

B. A LCT Upgrade is processed if the Customer’s current Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 VOICE First Registration Date is on or after October 1, 2012. The Customer will receive PLP credit from their current solution to apply to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Perpetual solution.

Effective December 19, 2012, qualified Partners will be able to generate Microsoft Dynamics GP Perpetual license keys for TWO, Inc. using the demo/dev template in the License Key Configuration (LKC) tool in VOICE under Developer Tools. Partners that qualify to receive a not for resale copy of GP 2013 Perpetual for their own internal use will have their accounts and license keys updated in early January 2013.

Hi there,
Many experienced a torturous delay when login to GP after installing SP5 of GP10 with Analytical Accounting module.The workaround by Microsoft for this issue till the hotfix is launched is given below.

********************************
A Microsoft SQL Server job can be created to remove the records from the SY07110 table for the Dynamics Online Services product as a workaround until the resolution is released. The Microsoft SQL Server job can be scheduled to run every morning and/or at other times during the day to remove the records

1. Open the SQL Server Management Studio.
2. Expand the SQL Server Agent.
3. Right-click Jobs and click New Job.
4. Enter a name for the job.
5. Under the Select a page area at the left, click Steps.
6. Click New.
7. Enter a Step Name such as "Remove SY07110".
8. Click to select DYNAMICS as the database.
9. Copy the following statement into the Command area.

delete DYNAMICS..SY07110 where PRODID = 6499

10. Click OK.
11. In the Select a page area, click Schedules.
12. Click New.
13. Enter a Name.
14. Click to select Daily under the Frequency area.
15. In the Daily Frequency area, enter a time early in the morning or if you would like to run this more times throughout the day click to select the Occurs Every option and set that option.
16. Click OK.
17. Click OK.
18. Right-click the job to verify it runs successfully....

Hope this is helpful.
Cheers.

Trial Balance Detail report is out of balance in GL

One of the most common problem you come across while using Multicurrency module is the Detailed Trial Balance report in GL being out of balance.Microsoft has already published an automated solution for this issue in the partnersource/customersource.
Here is the excerpt from the KB document to overcome this issue.

Step 1. First, open the Trial Balance Report Options window for the Detailed Trial Balance Report by selecting the report option and click the Modify button.

a. In the Include section, make sure the checkbox for
Unit Accounts is not marked.

b. In the Include section, make sure the checkbox for
Inactive Accounts is marked.

c. Print the report again.


Step 2. If the Detailed Trail Balance Report is still unbalanced, then you will need to identify the GL transaction that is causing the difference. To do this, use one of the methods below:

Method #1: Use SQL scripts

a. Use the appropriate step below to open SQL Server Management Studio:

• If you use
SQL Server 2000, start SQL Query Analyzer. To do this, click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server, and then click Query Analyzer.

• If you use
Microsoft SQL Server 2005, start SQL Server Management Studio. To do this, click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2005, and then clickSQL Server Management Studio.

• If you use
Microsoft SQL Server 2008, start SQL Server Management Studio. To do this, click Start, point to Programs, point to Microsoft SQL Server 2008, and then clickSQL Server Management Studio.


b. Copy the below script in to a query window and execute against the company database to identify unbalanced journal entries.

select JRNENTRY, sum(DEBITAMT) - sum(CRDTAMNT) from GL20000, GL00100 where ACCTTYPE = 1 group by JRNENTRY having sum(DEBITAMT) - sum(CRDTAMNT) <> 0 

Method #2: Use the automated solution for "General Ledger Out of Balance" to find the unbalanced journal entries. This solution can be found using the link below to KB 935384.

KB 935384 - Automated Solutions that are available for the Financial series in Microsoft Dynamics GP
https://mbs.microsoft.com/knowledgebase/KBDisplay.aspx?scid=kb;EN-US;935384



Step 3. Once the unbalanced journal entry has been identified, you can correct the journal entry by setting up a dummy account in General Ledger to use as your offsetting account to key a journal entry. When finished, you can delete the side of the journal entry booked to the dummy account and then remove the dummy account to leave a one-sided entry to balance the Detailed Trial Balanced Report. To do this, follow the steps in KB 865712 on how to create a one-sided journal entry to balance out the difference.

KB 865712 - The beginning balance for the current year does not balance in the General Ledger in Microsoft Dynamics GP
