Going Live with GP
I plan to start using GP Sept 1. We have not transferred any historical
transaction from the old accounting system.
All of our Vendors, Customers, Inv Items etc. are entered and we have tested
all functions of AP AR GL.
Does anyone have a checklist of things to do when starting with a new GP
I understand the basics things such as
Enter open invoices in AP and AR
Enter open POs
Enter begining GL account balances fromt the old accounting system
Begining bank balances and so on.
I just want to make sure that I'm not overlooking something so a check list

I have a GP7.5 installation when all data is, and a new GP8 installation on
a different server.
I need to migrate inventory data from the GP7.5 to GP8.
I know that i should use the integration manager. But using it means that i
should know the data source structure which is GP, and this is very complex
because i need to migrate all inventory module, not a few data.
PS: i don't what to make an upgrade because other modules are different in
the 2 installations.
Does anyone have any idea on this issue?

How many SQL 2005 CAL is needed ?
Server plus user client access license (CAL) licensing requires a separate
Server license for each server on which the software is installed, plus a
user CAL for each user accessing the server.
The user CAL model will likely be more cost effective than device CALs if
there are multiple devices per user (for example, a user has a laptop and
handheld computer accessing SQL Server).

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
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

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

per microsoft's documentation sql server sp4 must be installed before

necessary for the GP 9 upgrade? microsoft's documentation indicated that all
service packs for GP 8 must be installed before upgrading to GP 9, but after
speaking with support, they said the GP 8 service packs aren't necessary.
bottom line: i'd like to avoid the sql sp4 install if necessary as i had to

The senario is this.

The integration that is supplied by MS only allows you to integrate
with 1 company DB. You could probably use some of the components that
are provided, but you will need to develop some of the integration
logic yourself to address this.

I believe that you can also create your own company,

We are going to install GP 8.0 on a 32-bit server in-house and restore a
client's 8.0 data into these SQL databases. Pretty cut and dry.
Next, we will upgrade this in-house server from 8.0 to 10.0.
Continuing, we will install GP 10.0 on the client's new 64-bit server.
Finally, we will restore the upgraded 10.0 databases from our in-house
32-bit server to the client's 64-bit server.
Here's the question. Is there anything "wrong", from a technical
standpoint, in restoring SQL databases from a 32-bit environment into a
