Payroll should allow concurrent builds by different users

In a company that is heavy payroll, all checks are processed in the same day 
but by different users for different subsets of employees.  Allowing 
concurrent builds would be nice.

I have a customer with a 3rd party Dex product from Microsoft Professional 
Services that allows concurrent P/R builds.
As yet, it is not available for R10. (Customer on R7.5)

I don't know much about the product since they purchased it before becoming 
a customer of mine.
But, I believe the capability exists.
Maybe if you "nudge" them too, we can get an R10 version.

Email Address not Creating for New or Existing users
Ok, kind of a long story. The previous employee here did not demote an old DC correctly, I cannot remove this server as a "DC" all i can do is stop all services that make it a server and take it out of the DC OU in AD (alphabet soup !) So anyway, I took it out, an possibly a coincidence, the next day everytime i create a new exchange account on our Exchange server i get nothing in the Exchange address Tab. I have to manually add everything to that, and then it takes about a day for the Global address list to populate. I noticed that all the DC's had the old DC as one of...

Programatic VBA way of telling if the user has Word 2007 PDF add-in installed
Hi, I'm trying to work out in VBA how to check to see if word has had the Microsoft PDF add-in installed so that users can save documents as PDF. I'd rather not just try and save a PDF and see if it errors, there must be a better way. I've tried iterating through the ComAddin's but it's not in that collection. Any pointers would be great. You can test for the presence of the EXP_PDF.DLL e.g. Sub CheckPDF() Dim isOK as string isOK = SpecFolder(CSIDL_PROGRAM_FILES_COMMON) & "\Microsoft Shared\OFFICE12\EXP_PDF.DLL" If Dir(isOK) <&...

A different way to group data
Hello, I have a table where I have a ton of entries for each employee in my company. To simplify, we can say the table consits of two columns: emplyee_id and amount. Obviously, grouping the data by employee_id is easy, but I need to add a little twist. I want to divide the data into batches of 100 for each employee so that the query groups by not only employee_id, but returns one row for each group of 100 entries. Any way of doing this? Thx in advance Simplest way to do this is to create a report based on the query. In the report, include a text box with properties l...

System Attendant crashes when creating user accounts...

Payroll corrections after Payroll Year is closed
I have a client who closed their payroll year and issued W2s. Now, they've realized that because the last payroll of 2008 was printed on 12/31 but not distributed until January 2nd, it needs to fall into 2009 for wage reporting purposes. My first thought to correct this was to void the checks from the last payroll and re-issue them but I've discovered GP won't let you do this once the payroll year has been closed. Has anyone ever run into this scenario and if so, how was it corrected? Thx, Frank Hamelly MCP-GP, MCT, MVP East Coast Dynamics www.eastcoast-dynamics.com blog: www....

RPC/HTTP Outlook .CMW file overwrites users outlook settings
We recently configured our servers to respond to RPC/HTTP requests which works fine when I manually configure our Outlook clients. I am trying to use the custom maintenance wizard to change all users' settings to use RPC/HTTP, but when pushing the CMW or PRF file to client computers it resets outlook settings to default, I.E. the "signature" field and other personal settings are blank and need to be set again.

In Canadian Payroll, there are over 200 tables all with their physical names prefixed by CPY.

They are all listed under Tools > Resource Descriptions > Tables if you have those products installed. Good luck on your count and in deciding what is populated and/or u...
