I had a great time at the 2018 DSLUG conference in St. Louis and hope everyone else did as well! I have been settling back in at work and making plans to implement some of the great ideas I learned at the conference throughout the rest of this year.  In that time of reflection I also wanted to take a few minutes to write a few thank you notes. Thank you, escalators,  for making sure that even when I was getting extra steps in between the buildings I didn't get too many steps. Thank you, spouse,  for holding down the fort while I was gone for nearly a week. Thank you, St. Louis,  for being so centrally located that I didn't have any late night or ...

As part of our recent website upgrade, we’ve enhanced the options available to you for regaining access to your account should you happen to forget your password.  With so many passwords to so many different online accounts these days, we’ve likely all been through the Forgot Password process a time or two (“Does this one need a symbol or prohibit symbols? Do I need a number in this one? Does it need to be at least 7 characters or 10? Capital AND lower case letters?”).   We want to make it easy.  Now, you can provide your cell phone number and a secondary email address that you can use to reset your user group password should the need arise.  I encourage you ...

Please Note: Using this blog editor is very difficult.  Please excuse any spacing errors, uneven indention and an occasional errors in numbered outline items. Introduction: I have found over time that there are never enough ‘User’ fields in a Dynamics SL table. The solution to this problem is to create a ‘sibling’ table in the database and integrate it into then maintenance screen, using VBA and the VBA API functions. In this example, the table extension is being added to a screen that is shown in a spreadsheet control.  The code is a little more extensive than adding to a ‘Normal’ level screen that processes one row at a time. A real world application ...

​This is something that has bothered me for a long time & I was hoping to get it answered at the conference. I can't wait any longer....In AP when selecting a vendor my screen is set at vendor id & every time I pay an invoice I have to change the box in the right corner to name first  & then F3 in the box to get my list by vendor names. It takes so much longer. This has been this way ever since my last upgrade. Can someone tell me how to set the box permanently on "NAME." I know it must be easy, but I cant figure it out.

  I started attending the DSLUG Conference almost 10 years ago, and have not missed a year since.   I began attending to broaden my SL knowledge and continued as it is not only a way to gain that knowledge, but also to connect with other SL users. I have learned over the years that what you get out of the conference depends on you.   It is a perfect forum to socialize and gain knowledge from other users just like you. Talk to others in your sessions you attend.   Continue your conversation during breaks and in the Ask the Experts lounge following your sessions.   What a great way to share ideas and ask questions of how others have taken their use ...
