Someone was kind enough to loan me a copy of the new Microsoft Dynamics GP For Dummies (For Dummies (Computer/Tech)) book to review. I have to say that I found that the book provided surprisingly complete coverage of the core financial and distribution modules along with some interesting nuggets, such as coverage of the PSTL tools and brief coverage of Modifier. I found most of the advice to be right on including advice about not changing general journal information when posting through, void the sub-ledger transaction instead.
It won't replace a good consultant of course. No book does a good enough job on the why behind the setup decisions you'll need to make. But as a Microsoft MVP for Dynamics GP I'm always happy to see something that makes things easier for users.
My only quibble is that there was no coverage of the...
This book not only helps me on my day to day questions in GP, but also assisted me in the entire implementation into my company. Very easy step by step instructions with actual freeze frames of what you will be looking at.
5 stars I'm a new user of Dynamics Great Plains. Here are some items I found helpful in this book:
-There are lots of screen shots for the windows that are being discussed. -Several areas of step by step instructions tell the reader how to get things done. -The reader is given the chapter numbers in the GP manuals to turn to for more information. Users and IT people working with Great Plains will probably need more information to successfully use and implement this ERP software. -The part of tens (and other areas of the book as well) explains what to do, what not to do, and what to avoid when using and implementing Great Plains.
I was looking for more info on the Modifier and Extender modules. These modules were briefly explained in Chapter 15. I was pleased to find out that Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) can be used to customize Dynamics GP. More customization examples would have been helpful.
