A simple journal entry security fix for Microsoft Dynamics GP
Let's talk for a minute about an easy security fix in Dynamics GP.
There is something I see quite a lot when using Fastpath Assure to analyze GP companies for segregation of duties conflicts.

For example, amounts could be moved from expenses into a fictitious balance sheet account to materially change the outcome of the financial statements.
