Sorry Folks, not much Posting this week. I have been working with some external consultants to run a whole lot of fixes on our Microsoft Dynamics Great Plains system. actually, we currently have version 7.5 so theoretically it is still Microsoft Business Solutions Great Plains… aaaaargh who does these names??
Anyway, we are working on correcting the odd issue here or there with the data so we can then upgrade to the current Version, v9. We have also found that we aren’t using a large number of modules that we have actually licensed so this will be a big update to the way the the Finance and the Credit departments will be using this system.
Fortunately, we have run up a duplicate system on a VMWare hosted Virtual Server that made it easy to replicate all the databases across and test the verious fixes, scripts and upgrades. Fantastic…
The upgrade starts on the Test System next week and then the real one starts the following week (if all goes well…)
