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

Is there a procedure to move a WSS SQL Express database to another server
running SQL Server?
Yes there is a process needs to be followed:
Detach the content Database from SharePoint Web application through Central
Move LDF and MDF files to the new Server
Attach the Content Database from new SQL Server (There is a option to
mention Database Server and DB name when you attach)

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?

I have disabled the router DHCP. If I do ipconfig /all (after restarting
it) on the server amongst the stuff is: DHCP Enabled = no. I have
restarted a PC on the network (server has no PCs connected yet) and it
seems to have a correct address 192.168 3 x. Is the DHCP server really
off and is so how do I start it?
Note I have only just loaded SBS2008 on the server so little config has
been done. Slowly does it!

assuming a 10 con-current licenses being installed on 15 workstation, with 15
users in GP.
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).

Maximum Global Business...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
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

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...Upgrading from GP 9 to GP 10

per microsoft's documentation sql server sp4 must be installed before
upgrading to GP 9. does anyone know if the sql server sp 4 install is
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
rebuild my test server after installing sp4 last week.

Got this from a client and not sure what they are doing, but never heard of

As I am reviewing the Payroll Deduction Journal from the payroll I just ran
yesterday, I have identified 5 employees whose deductions & benefits did not
calculate. I happen to be one of the 5. There is $$$$$ that did not come
off my pay as deductions; including my 401K. The common denominator seems to
be when employee changes are made, deductions & benefits are made inactive;
even though those benefits & deductions have no part in the changes being
made. Pardon me, ...MS CRM integration to GP
Can any one update me wheather the mutiple company
databases can be integrated to MSCRM.
The senario is this.
a company has mutiple entities using GP 7.5 and unique sql
databases,require to integrate mscrm with gp.
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 built a multi-user contacts application as a split Access database
initially and then moved the back end to SQL Server 2005 using an ODBC
connection. I implemented an AutoNumber workaround to avoid primary key
collisions when users attempt to add records at the same time (probably
borrowed from Allen Browne or Albert Kallal?) by setting the default value of
the ContactID field = DMax("ContactID", "tblContacts") + 1 and trapping any
duplicate key errors as follows:
