Five Questions You Need to Answer When Creating a Microsoft Dynamics GP Report Specification
Often when developing reports for Microsoft Dynamics GP users, we face what I like to call the need-to-know challenge. No information is volunteered, you have to ask very leading questions to really understand the report's purpose, and at every step someone else needs to be consulted.
This dynamic frequently results from the fact that the person requesting the report is two or three degrees removed from the actual users of the report and often does not know the detailed requirements. It can also sometimes happen when users think that by giving the report designer too much information they will be wasting time, and since they're paying by the hour, time is money.
