Sharepoint 2007 & Business Portal
Has anyone heard about compatibility between Sharepoint 2007 and Business
Hi Cindy -
Thank you for posting to Newsgroups!
Business Portal 3.0 is only compatible with Windows SharePoint Services 2.0
or SharePoint Portal Server 2003.
Business Portal 4.0 will run on WSS 3.0 and on Microsoft Office SharePoint
Server (MOSS) 2007.
Thank you -

PLEA...Great Plains 9 Restore
I am trying to upgrade from great plains 9 to great plains 9 sp2.
So, we have setup up a test server where I have installed GP 9 and restored
At the moment I am just reading the KB923671 from customer source and one of
the prequisites that you need to do before installing the service pack deals
with Reports.dic and Forms.dic
My question is when you install GP on such a scanario does one have to
copy/restore the Reports.dic and Forms.dic files from the live system [or
from the backups].
Or are they irrelevant?
The FORMS.DIC and REPORTS.DIC are irreleva...Currency in Business Portal
I am using Business Portal 2.5 Feature Pack. It is working fine. Is there
any way to hide currency Id displaying in any amount field? We are facing
problem in transfering this infomation to Excel, It transters the Currency Id
too, due to that Excel senses that field as a text and we cannot do any
calculation on that. We have to do some extra effort in excel to make those
fields as numeric or currency.
...Query Error in Business Portal #2
BP 2.5. Sometimes a user, a requisition purchase, got "Query Error" when he
tried to select a vendor from drop dowm list. I reboot the BP server and
fixed the problem. Do you know how did it happen? How to prevent it happen
again? Except reboot the BP server, should I do anything in the SQL Database
server? Thank you very much.
...Business Portal 2.5 to Business Portal 3.0
We had a BP 2.5 and GP 8.0 installation that I used to train myself on prior
to installing for a client. We have since upgraded to Great Plains version
9. I have been tasked with getting Business Portal 3.0 installed and running
internally. I removed Business Portal via Add/Remove programs, but recieved
an error when removing the database objects. The GP DYNAMICS database is the
incorrect version (it was upgraded).
So currently I have no Business Portal 2.5 installed to upgrade (I completed
the application removal process, probably a mistake) and cannot remove the
current BP databa...Business Portal on Windows Mobile

GoIntegration and Ez Route offer Mobile Integration for GP. I dont

...delete a report from Business Portal
I created several reports in GP that publish to a shared folder and
then are viewed in Business Portal. I want to remove some of them of
the reports that are no longer used. I deleted the report in GP, and
even deleted the report in the shared folder, but in Business Portal,
the report is still shown as an option, though nothing appears when the
report is selected. How can I remove these reports as options in
Business Portal. I imagine that I can do it in the ReportCatalog table
in the database using a Delete statment, is there another option?

Content-Transfer-Encoding: quot...Business Portal screen display
When viewing a FRx report in Business portal it is hard to view the entire
report. The screen is first taken up by the internet explorer browser and
menus, business portal browser and menus and then finally the report. This
all takes up a third of the screen before you can start viewing the report.
We would like an option to be able to view the report in its entirety and
then toggle between the business portal center and the report when needed.
