GP 10 Feature: A4

What is the A4 feature? I assume this is not a separate module. We do use A4 
paper from time to time but I don't remember an similar option on v8 from 
which we are going to upgrade.

A4 for is a fantastically useful module for anyone who uses sensible
paper sizes!

Basically, it replaces all the built-in GP graphical reports (e.g
Invoices, Remittances) to be formatted for use with A4 paper.

There is a bug, however, in the A4 version of the Blank Invoice Form /
Blank History Invoice Form in the Invoicing module that causes every
invoice on the system to be included on the printout.  If you use
Invoicing (rather than SOP) this is something you might want to be
aware of.

The A4 module was indeed included in both MBS-GP 8 and GP9 - see if
you can check whether you have it installed, as it might make a
difference when you come to install you modified reports.

Hope this helps,

Andrew

Hi Allen

I was involved in the original A4 project.

When the development team started converting many of the built in reports from text to graphics, they formatted the graphic reports 
for US Letter size.

Once installed the A4.cnk file will update the Dynamics.dic and change the format of a number of reports to fit on A4 paper.

NOTE: There is no uninstall as this does update the Dynamics.dic in the same way the language chunks for non US-English installs 
do.

If you only need a couple of reports to fit A4, you might find it easier to just modify those with report writer.

Here is an excerpt from the original readme file:

With Version 7.00 a number of reports which were previously Text Reports were converted to Graphic Reports
and a number of new reports added as Graphic Reports.  Graphic Reports which have a layout based on US Letter
sized paper do not fit well on A4 sized paper.  

US Letter is 8.5"  (216mm) wide by 11"    (279mm) high.
A4 Paper  is 8.27" (210mm) wide by 11.69" (297mm) high.

This patching chunk is designed to ensure that characters are not cut off from the right hand edge of reports
and that vertical lines on reports reach the bottom of the boxes as they were meant to.

Questions about GP Client upgrade configuration
I'm getting ready to install a Service pack for GP7.5 and my ultimate goal is to get ready to upgrade to GP8.0. However right now upgrades are very tedious and below is the whole story. All the users/clients are identical! Let me describe what we have done in the past to upgrade and what I want in the future. In the past we sat down at each client machine performed the install. Then we logged in as an administrator (Ethoseries required this I think) so the product can finish loading what it needs. Again we do both steps on every client.

Fabrication and GP
I need to know how to process a transaction in GP. We are a sales - distribution center. We do some light fabrication. We need to find a way in GP to take one part or more parts, do fabrication work with them, then put them back into the system as a new part. For example, we take drum rollers and send them to a local fabricator who drills holes in them, inserts "brushes", then sends them back to us as a brush roller. They charge us for labor and the additional material and we have a new part. Currently, we either treat it as a parts sale / purchase. That part is clean, but a...
