Dynamics SL 2018 CU8 is now available

cu8 blog

Microsoft Dynamics SL CU8 is now out, so let’s go over what is new and what has changed!

  • The DMGDataAccess Business Object now uses the Microsoft OLE DB driver for SQL Server Version 18 in the latest update. This means that Inventory Replenishment Create Transaction, Convert EDI Pos to Sales Orders, and Orders to Purchase will all now connect using the OLE DB driver.
  • SL CU8 will be able to run on Windows 11, if you have questions on how this works, we can help break down the step by step process for the installation.
  • The look and feel of journal entries have also changed with this update.  The Journal Entry (01.010.00) screen has been updated to now have hidden labels. These labels generate list text for the cBatchHandling and creconstatus drop down controls. There are hidden labels for O and V options of the cbattype dropdown to make localization easier. See the picture above for the hidden label controls.

That wraps up our notes on what has changed in this new update. Be sure to contact us if you have any questions about CU8. You can reach us here: info@polaris-business.com.
