Is there a listing of the known problems cuased by applying SP 10 for FRx? I
would like to install it to correct the excel export issue but I believe that
this SP causes certain other problems.
Jan Harrigan has a pretty comprehensive write up on this:
My 2 cents: the only real issue that I have seen (and only with 1 customer
so far) is the C$ format on first row. And there is a workaround for this

We are currently running GP 8 w/ SP1a on a Windows 2000 Server running SQL

installation to a Windows 2003 x64 server running SQL 2005 x64.
I know the first step is up install SP5 for GP 8 (on the old server) and
make sure everything is okay there. But what's next? I thought I would
install GP 8 on the x64/SQL 2005 box, move the databases over, and then
perform the upgrade to 10 on that new box. But can I even install GP 8 on the

...FRx 6.7 Registration Key Problem
I have an FRx 6.7 install running under Windows 2003 terminal services and
when I installed everything, relocated the server, and tested, everything
went smooth. I was able to access the system and pull up reports from the
catalog. The problem now is that when the user logs in, they get an error
that the Spec type isn't correct for this installation type etc, which I've
traced back to the fact that the licensing is missing from the installation
now. When I re-enter the license, it works fine until I close out of FRx at
which point it apparently blows away all changes. This...The future of FRx
Can somebody please clear this up for me. Currently we are using Dynamics GP

tool that will let us create BI reports [we are an investment banking firm].
My research on Microsoft's site indicates that FRx is being phased out and it
will be replaced by Management Reporter. I took a look at MR and it looks
like a dupe of FRx. Also we are looking at Enterprise Reporter - can somebody
confirm if ER can generate the same financials as FRx? I then hear that ER is
being phased out. Which products should we be loo...FRx #9

please, check thoroughly all settings of your report as well as column and

error 3050 when starting FRX any thoughts?
Hmmmmm..... Doesn't appear to be a Pervasive error.... Could be a SQL error.....
Could be an OS error.....
With a lack of any other pertinent information, could it be a Windows error
relating to not being able to lock the database..... Could occur if the user
only has read access and therefore the database engine cannot write a lock....
How about the entire error message and more info about the version numbers for
Greaat Plains, FRx, database, etc....
Just some thoughts.....

I've seen a couple of places refer to a webpart for FRx reports - does anyone
know about it?
FRx Webport is basically used for publishing FRx reports to intranet. This
option enables you to view the reports in explorer.

I was wondering if there was any way to run a report in Frx by vendor name.
So if I wanted to see what I paid ABC Company for the month by G/L code, it
would show me.
If so, how would you do it.
Any help would be appreciated
Can get everything except the GL code through a smart list :
Search Doc type = payment

Vendor ID =

We use GP 7.5 Standard MSDE and FRx 6.5.246. Upgrading is not an
option right now.
We created a historical company so that we could purge data from
production in order to stay under that old 2 GB limit.
When I set up the Historical company in FRx and try to print a
balance sheet or P&L from the period that we purged in production,
the reports yield no data. However I can print a trial balance in GP
so I know the data is there. Also, FRx reports print OK for the
current periods in the Historical company.

...cloning a copy of FRx
We are using Microsoft Dynamics GP ver. 10.0 and FRx ver. 6.7. We are trying
to discover how, when we make a clone of our production server on to a test
server, to clone FRx also. When we have done this in the past, the cloned
FRx spec set on test actually changes the spec set for the production or
‘live’ server. Of course, once we hear from the users about errors they’re
receiving, we change the spec set back. But now the test server is pointing
to the live spec set. It seems to allow only one way or the other.
When we asked our VAR, their response was: if you want the clo...FRX Security
I enabled FRX 6.7 security.

When these users edit row format, while saving it appears a message "error

What is your full FRx version? To find the full version, click the Help
menu, and then click About FRx. The version should be 6.7.xxxx - the last
four digits are what we need.
I believe you're encountering an issue we fixed in SP3 for FRx 6.7 (the
latest is SP4). If your version is earlier than 6.7.3073, you should be able

I have successfully created Financial Statements for two of our three

row file, I specify a range from account 30000 through 99999. Most accounts
show up in the list. Some don’t. The following account string will be my
example of an existing account, with a balance, that does not show up in the

We have an FRx report containing 12 columns - one for each month. We are
using the P<=B Print Control in the column layout to only print those months
that are less than or equal to the Base Period.
When we generate a report that contains six months or more and export it to
an .XLS spreadhsheet it looks fine. However, if the report contains less
than six months (fewer columns), we don't get our report heading.
Is this due to a setup option somewhere in the catalog id?
Have you checked the "Header Options" under your column layout? Look at the

How do you prepare an FRX report that includes some
summarized rows (e.g. "regular pay" includes accounts for
regular, vacation, sickleave, etc.) and some detail rows
that show account detail? The Print Control "XD" in the
row format suppresses the account detail in a detail report
but also suppresses the summary line entirely.
Do this in your row setup. For the Summary Account use ???? in you account
string and for the detail use the full account number.

Has anyone had any issues adding AA budget info to FRx reports?
I am trying to put the Budget figure into my Column Layout but when I go
into the Zoom the only book codes are Actual and Unit account, no Budget?
Any ideas VERY gratefully appreciated, I am a bit of a novice to AA and am
finding it quite tough to understand.
Interesting question, I didn't try this out before but will try and get back
to you, for the time being have you managed to get your AA codes "without
budgets" in FRx correctly or you are facing issues?
...PO numbers in FRx?
Can FRx transaction detail reports in drill-down viewer for income
statements display PO numbers from GP Purchase Order Processing, or does FRx
not get that detailed?
FRx can bring in the originating master number of a transaction, however, I
cannot think of a case where the PO number will be the originating master
number, since the PO itself is not an accounting transaction. So I think
you'll be able to see the receipt and/or vendor invoice numbers there, but
not the PO number.
