What are YOU interested in seeing a post on?

Typically, the blog posts I make are related to an issue that a client is currently experiencing and the resolution we arrived at.  Sometimes, it's something cool I learned along the way by reading other blogs that I follow.  However, the main reason I publish a blog is to provide YOU, the users who are kind enough to read my ramblings, insight into how to do things better, faster, easier in Dynamics GP.

To that end, I'd like to know what you would like to see a post on.  Do you have a particularly sticky issue that you haven't been able to find an answer to?  If so, leave a comment on this post and we'll see what we can do.

Thanks!  Frank

Quick and Dirty way to see Window Resources

Need to see the tables and fields related to a particular window in GP?  Here's how - open the window, select Tools>>Integrate>Table Import.  The Select a Table window opens and displays all the tables assoicated with the window (this works only in GP10 and later versions).

if you need to see the fields in a specific table, double click on the table name in the Select a Table window.  The Table Import Definition window opens.  Enter Test or some other value in the Definition ID field.  Note that the fields appear in the scrolling window.  Make sure you delete the definition when you close the window.
