Does anyone have any experince with this course? Worth it? It's $249 

Anyone reccomend a course?





I created a company (through Dynamics 9.0 Utilities) and then used a DB sync tool to make sure that all the objects were created.


WS Support says that I should have launched Wennsoft Utilities before the sync process by dropping WSUTIL.SET on top of DYNAMICS.EXE.


This document, and all our eConnect documentation, is available on the eConnect menu.  

The most frequently asked question here is 'how do I get started with eConnect?'. I've long known that the first example with any programing paradigm is the hardest thing to do - it's as true with VB.NET or ASP.NET as it is with eConnect. Here is a step by step walk through on how to get started.


The sample code provided written in Visual Studio 2008, VB.NET, ASP.NET in VB, and written against Dynamics GP 10.0. We assume familiarity with that environment.

The sample code is SAMPLE CODE ONLY, NOT FIT FOR PRODUCTION USE. It is intended to teach eConnect, and should not be used for any other purpose.

The files provided are compacted with WinRAR.


First, read this, it's a conceptual primer for eConnect. It will tell you what eConnect does.

Help File

Download and read the help file, which is here. Yes, read it. Every word.
Next, go back to the step above. You really need to do this.  

Serialization vs Manual coding


 Serialization means that we instantiate eConnect objects and populate them, then use those objects to create the XML document that eConnect needs. That's an advanced topic, so we'll skip it for now.

Manual Coding

By 'manual coding', I mean that we're going to create an XML document by hand and then feed it to eConnect. The document that we're going to use will create/update a customer record.

eConnect has a 'client - server' relationship with Dynamics, meaning that your code frequently does not reside on the SQL Server. That can cause issues if you try to send a transaction from your client machine to the server, you have to set up 'DCOM' to make that work. I've had issues with this, so I don't do it. On all my jobs I set up a web service on the SQL Server and send that service an XML doc. It is very easy to do, and works without issue. That's what we're going to do here.

Download the VB.NET solution here
and open it up in VS2008. THE CODE MUST BE INSTALLED ON THE SQL SERVER to work. Once you get it working, you can publish the web service to the SQL Server, set a reference to it, and then move the client code off the server. For this example we're going to do it as simply as possible.

There are three projects in the sample solution. eConnect10 is the main library, Econnect Service is the Web Service, and Tester is a VB application that call the eConnect code and service.



I am trying to use a gp adding project to limit the visible customers from the Customer ID Dropdown to only show the ACTIVE customers....

 Is that doable ?  How difficult is it ?  Any samples to give me a head start ?





Hello everyone!

I'm writing an application in VB.NET that allows users to enter information for a Receivings Transaction. I follow the schema provided in the programmers guide, but even when the code shows no error, when I try to see the transaction in GP, this doesn't show. I look at the tables (POP10330, POP10310, POP10500) and the transaction is there, but not the header(POP10300). I don't know why the header is missing.

 The XML shows this:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" ?>

- <eConnect xmlns:xsi="" xmlns:xsd="">
- <POPReceivingsType>
  <eConnectProcessInfo xsi:nil="true" />
  <taRequesterTrxDisabler_Items xsi:nil="true" />
  <taUpdateCreateItemRcd xsi:nil="true" />

Dear All,


I have a problem uding visual studio 2005 tools for Gp with GP 10

whenever I try to add a datagrid column through the designer the whole visual studio hangs, though it works fine with normal windows applications

Any Idea ?


i develop for both dynamics GP version 9 and 10. i installed both VSTDG SDKs
and they override each other... how can i setup my system to develop for both


Dear ALL

Dose E-connect support Manufacturing?


Please advice


 Hello All,


I am asking if there is a ready made tool that can flip forms and reports.

I want a tool that will do the following


Name : Textbox

to be changed to

Textbox : Name


I heard there is a ready made tool to do so instead of redeveloping each form and report.

Edit 9/17/15 View the main article for this error here 

 I'm importing PA projects using eConnect 10 and have an unusual circumstance where the client uses GL accounts where not all segments are used completely, and where some accounts segments are left blank.  GP certainly supports this via the UI, but I've never had to deal with this using eConnect and now that I'm getting errors trying I'm wondering if it is possible, or if there is a trick to doing it.


 Some examples:

1200-1-123456-123  (full account)

1800-1-123456-___ (last segment blank)

1800-_-______-____ (3 segments blank)

 4000-1-1_____-___ (3rd segment partially used,  4th segment blank)


So far I've tried sending the full account string using spaces and dashes to fill out the string, like:

 "4000-1-1     -   "

And I've also tried eliminating the spaces:


And tried eliminating the trailing dash:


For kicks, I even tried eliminating the dashes:



All of these generate the same error:

Error Number = 4980  Stored Procedure taPAAccountsSetup  Error Description = Account number string does not exist
Node Identifier Parameters: taPAAccountsSetup            


Anyone ever used eConnect to  import these type of "partial" account number strings?
