Another Windows Update that could get your GP client in trouble…

Writing on The Dynamics GP Geek Blog, Beat Bucher stated that on March 10, customers of some Microsoft Dynamics GP consultants reported that Dynamics GP would print a black box in the place where there should be a graphical object, such as check signatures or a company logo on GP reports.

That same day a Microsoft internal source stated that the issue was caused by a Patch-Tuesday update that was deployed by Microsoft for Windows 10 & Windows 1903/1909 Server releases, according to Bucher.

The patches are known under the KB5000802 & KB5000808 and should you be affected by this issue, it is recommended for now to simply un-install from the control panel the above mentioned updates if they have been installed automatically.

In Bucher's last update about this issue on March 17, he explained the only way to fix this issue and said that the team in Fargo was actively working on the issue with the Windows team.

How does fixed asset handle partial asset retirements?

On the Dynamics GP Support and Services blog, Janelle Montplaisir stated that in the last month, she has had a number of cases regarding fixed asset partial retirements and how Dynamics GP handles the amount retired.

As such, she decided to share some information for others who might be having similar questions. 

Some of the questions Montplaisir has been receiving include:

  • I retired part of the asset, but why do I not see a gain/loss on the asset when completing GL Posting?
  • I retired an asset years ago and deleted it, but why is the asset still in fixed assets?
  • Why are there two asset IDs for the same asset when we do not use multiple asset suffix?

In the blog post, Montplaisir offers answers to the questions users have with partial asset retirement.

How to import credit card transactions to a vendor account in Dynamics GP

An author writing on the Trinsoft blog, noted that with the October 2020 release of Dynamics GP, users can now import credit card transactions to a vendor account, which makes it fast and easy to enter invoice transactions.

Users can import the credit card transactions as payable invoices or manual payments. And using the import functionality brings invoices for a vendor into a batch and reduces data entry errors, the author said.

In the post, the author offers a detailed explanation (complete with screen shots) of how to import credit card transactions to a vendor account.

Unable to see receipts when doing a PO return in purchase order processing

Also on the Dynamics GP Support and Services Blog, Angela Eckman Ebensteiner noted that she's come across this issues a few times and wanted to share information about it in case others are having the same problem.

Ebensteiner stated that there are times when a user has to do a return in purchase order processing. And generally, if you don't see the receipt in the lookup to return when you return an item, it's one of two main reasons.

However, she said recently she's come across a couple of other scenarios that aren’t as obvious or easy to figure out. Consequently, she decided to share her findings with you.
