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

In the regular user interface we can assign an activity to a user or queue,
however in a workflow we can only assign an activity to a user. Why is that?
Is there any workaround other than an assembly?
You can assign an activity in CRM 3.0 to a queue via workflow. If the primary
entity of the workflow is an activity, add an "Assign entity" step to the
workflow. In the Assign Entity dialog, you will see a three radio button and
the bottom one for Queue should be enabled. Click that and then click the
"Assign to" button

I have a table with two rows, 33 columns long. Top row has Years (2004
to 2036) in it and the row below is intended for the inputing of values
in percentage form. Some of the cells in bottom row may be left blank
or with 0 value.
Elsewhere on my spreadsheet I want to create formulas that will return
the top row value (year) for each year where the value in bottom row is
greater than 0.
For example, if
A1 = 2004 A2 = 2005 A3 = 2006 A4 = 2007
B1 = 0 % B2 = 5 % B3 = blank B4 = 20%
What formula in cell C1 will return value "2005" and in cell C2 the

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?

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).

I am using MRMS 2.0 and my log files size is multiplying very fast.
Tried doing the database shrinking and making the recovery mode to simple.
Still the log files size is mulitplying.
Is there any fix for this from microsoft.
Thanks in Advance
1) With both the original .MDF and .LDF files located where they supposed to
be, run RMS Admin and select the database you want to shrink.
2) Issue this query to find the log device name: SELECT FILE_NAME(2). This
will return the name of your log device (in our case, we called the database

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...Payroll GP 10.0
Got this from a client and not sure what they are doing, but never heard of
this any help would be great.
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, ...Vlookup returns "0"

There are a couple ways so do this. One is to test it, which makes for
doing the VLOOKUP function twice.

This gets a little messy. Better yet, and simpler is to hide the original

...GP 9 Upgrade and SQL Server 2000 sp4
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

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.

Seems really silly that Outlook 2003 would use Windows Messenger a
older product with less features then use MSN Messenger which is a
newer product with more features.
