Need more Reports

GP does not provide detailed reports itself. reports such as sales by 
customer, best selling items, inventory valuation and so... Also the reports 
that it provides are not in good design and format (not useful). Is there any 
report package from third party that can be purchased or there is any other 
solution to get in depth reports and analysis?

Sure

Since Great Plains cannot possibly be all things to all people, get to
know the layout of the Great Plains database and where all of the data
is stored. Then roll your own reports using the native Report Writer,
SQL Reporting Services, Crystal Reports, MS Access, etc... You could
also try modifying the existing reports to give you what you want.

The possibilities are endless.

Hesam,

Yes, Dynamics GP is thin in the sales reports area.  But, I used to 
represent a different software package that had hundreds of Sales Analysis 
reports included with the package.  You know, I STILL wrote tons of reports 
for those users.  EVERY site seems to want their sales data sliced and diced 
different from the next firm.

Bottom line is, if GP gave you 100 more sales reports, you might find 3-4 of 
them useful and modify others.

I absolutely agree with you, Richards but the problem with GP is that even 
basic reports does not work for example " Received but not matched report and 
Historical stock status report etc ...

A common situation comes up where you have a "drawing hand" and face a bet by your opponent.

Need to test a mobo
I had a power surge about 3 weeks ago - lost a drive, now making ticking noises. I had another two drive that seem to work sporadically now. So, I thought it might have been my power supply.

Next, I bought a new hard drive and found that it was also acting up - making noises like whirring up and down (like the other drives I thought were dead).
