Dynamics GP Import with Macros

Mike wrote this great blog article awhile ago: http://gp.rosebizincblogs.com/2008/10/using-gp-macros-to-import-data-2.html

The reason I reference it now is that I have worked with GP for over 12 years and had never used this method for data import. But we are currently working with a new customer that is migrating to GP. They have about 600 BOM’s and though we were able to import the BOM’s fairly easily, importing the routers was just not going to work.

So I thought I would try the macro method. It worked beautifully. The source file I used, had very simple router information, and the macro ran just fine.

Two things to consider:

  • It’s not going to work the first time (what macro ever does?), so expect that minor set back.
  • Be very careful not to interrupt the process by continuing to work on your machine. In my case, I was accessing GP through a remote desk top, so this wasn’t a problem. I just minimized the RDP window, and went about my day as the macro ran on the remote machine.

If you haven’t tried this out yet, you should give it a try.

Give Me 5 in the Cloud

Microsoft recently announced a great offer for new customers of Microsoft Dynamics GP, NAV and SL called “Give Me 5”. While this is a very compelling software offer, what happens if your customer really doesn’t want to deal with running the software on-premise? Does this prohibit the customer from purchasing the application?

All good questions, and there is a great answer:

RoseASP is now offering HOSTING ONLY pricing for the “Give Me 5? promotion. Our Give Me 5 in the Cloud offer includes a special reduced $900 install and $900 per month hosting fee (includes all 5 users). Customers can now take advantage of the best on-premise pricing coupled with a safe and secure hosted solution!!!
To allow you to take full advantage of the “Give Me 5” promotion from Microsoft, RoseASP offers hosting-only packages that allow you to sell the Dynamics license to the customer, but yet host it at RoseASP. This also includes any ISV solutions that the customer may want to include in their system. No SQL licenses need to be purchases as part of this offer. The customer can continue to work with their Microsoft Dynamics Partner of choice and then turn to RoseASP for hosting. RoseASP has been hosting Microsoft Dynamics solutions since 2000.
