My friend Corey and I used to have a running complaint called 'things that bug me'. I don't see Corey so much any more - so I'll just share this with you

(ahem)

Things that bug me:

  • Overly cheerful Starbucks employees
  • People that respond to emails or IMs with one word. (now I have to stop what I'm doing to read 'OK' or 'Thanks')
  • Baseball stadiums that sell salad
  • People that buy salads at baseball games (ok, that should only be one... but it really bugs me)
  • People that send an email that says 'call me'. Dude, I'm a programmer. I sit here all day. Instead of making me read your email, just dial my number.
  • People that walk around all day with their blue tooth headset on. It's like at any minute you will become less important than the really important phone call that they're about to get.
  • Teenagers that send text messages while looking you in the eye. Have you seen this? It's hard to believe it's possible. If you're talking to a teen and wonding why their hand looks busy in their pocket, they're probably texting someone much more interesting than you. If you think about it, that's probably anyone. (sigh)
  • People that call back on caller ID when you dialed a wrong number. So, you dial a wrong number and hang up quickly and dial the right number, then they call you and ask who you are and why did you call them. I'm gonna start telling them that I'm from the Doctor's office and their spouse's test results are in and it looks like an STD.

 

I'll keep filling this in. Maybe it'll be therepudic. Maybe they'll read it out loud at my trial and ask me if I remember writing it. You never know.

I am trying to get data from a windows form into an xml file. The xml file has a parent node of <Orders> with child nodes <Order>. I am having trouble getting <Order> into <Orders>. I am just getting multiple parent nodes of <Order>. The text in each respective textbox is put into the correct fields, I just can't seem to figure out how to the get parent node in place. Here is my code. What do I need to add in order to create the <Orders> parent node and have the <Order> objects within it? I know this isn't exactly an eConnect question, but it is related as this is the program we want to use to create the file for eConnect to create our invoices in GP.

Where the <Order> is created....

Public Sub CreateOrder()

o = New Order

o.OrderID = tbOrderID.Text

o.Name = tbName.Text

o.Company = tbCompany.Text

o.Address1 = tbAddress1.Text

o.Address2 = tbAddress2.Text

o.Address3 = tbAddress3.Text

o.City = tbCity.Text

o.State = cbState.SelectedItem

o.Zip = tbZip.Text

o.Shipping = cbShipping.SelectedItem

o.Email = ""

o.Phone = tbPhone.Text

o.Qty = tbQty.Text

o.ItemNo = tbItemNo.Text

Dim objStreamWriter As New StreamWriter("C:\FlukerOrders.xml", 1)

Dim length As New Integer

length = OrderCol.Count

x =
New XmlSerializer(o.GetType)

x.Serialize(objStreamWriter, o)

objStreamWriter.Close()

End Sub

THIS IS THE ORDER CLASS THAT CREATES THE DATA FOR THE ORDER....

I search for hours for this one, apparently it can be caused by lots of things. In my case, I got the error deploying a project from a dev server, where it worked just fine, to a production server.

 

Deployment Methodology for Dynamics GP Dictionary Files

 

When installing Dynamics GP files, a decision is made as to where the files will be stored. This white paper will discuss the different options and the benefits of each.

The different methods we will discuss are:

  • Leaving the files in their default location (C:\Program Files\Microsoft Dynamics\GP)
  • Moving the report and forms dictionary (forms.dic and reports.dic) to a network share
  • Having the files reside in a source directory and pulling them to the workstation daily

I haved done some transaction by creating custom xml node in econnect and by creating custom stored procdure.

Every thing is working fine. BUt i just want to get the confirmation .

1) Is there any limit for the number of node in a single XML document which is send to entryPoint .

 

Please help me

 

Hello everyone,

As you know there are sales documents and everyone of them has SOP Type number, like this :

Quote : 1

Order : 2

Invoice: 3

Return: 4

I want to know how to change them. For example, changing Invoice from 3 to 4.

Note: I already ask this question on Dynamic GP Group at Google, I hope getting the answer from here.
