Even customers are truly surprised when I show them how Integration Manager can pull information from one company or even better from another SQL server into Dynamics GP as a source.
Yes I know you are surprised too that I am telling you that your source can be a SQL Query Script…….
We have many ways of sorting data in integration manager, we even have filters and sort fields on the source definition, but nothing beats the customer frustration when they have a sorted file and Integration Manager scrambles the file, then open up the distributions for example on a JE import and see that the order is not even close to what the source file have.
One thing important is that there is a setting in the IntegrationManager.ini file. This setting is called UseOptimizedFilter normally I see this option with the value True.
When this option is enabled, Integration Manager uses a series of ninja techniques to optimize the data upload but that has an impact on the sort order.
If you want to have the distributions ordered or your transactions in the order you have them in your source file, close your Integration Manager, go to this file located on the Integration Manager code folder and set to false this setting.
Try your integration once again and voila!!!! Its just like magic, everything is the way you had it on your source file.
I am hoping to save techs from headaches here, and if this tip helps you, let us know, we want to know if our work can actually influence a better Dynamics community.
