SL Support Blog

For a while now we’ve been hearing about and discussing the lifeline of the Microsoft Dynamics SL. It is a legacy software that has been around for quite some time. And we all knew this day was coming, but on September 30, Microsoft announce the discontinuation of Microsoft Dynamics SL 2018 for new customers.

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.

Now that Microsoft Dynamics SL 2018 Cumulative Update 6 (CU6) is available, lets break down what is new and what has been improved.

  • Time Review & Approval Automatic GL Labor Posting: The Time and Expense Setup Approval tab can now turn on an option in the Time Review & Approval screen to run GL Labor Postings automatically for the approved labor postings.
  • Accounts Payable Check Batch Approval: The Approval Maintenance screen now has the option that Accounts Payable check batches can be set to require an approval. This means that they cannot be printed until they are approved.
  • Order Management PV Options for Sales Orders and Shippers: Users can now select to exclude cancelled sales orders and shippers from the PV lists. This is in Shipper ID field and Order Number fields. Also, the users can now limit the number of years and shippers to be shown in the PV List as well

All in all this update doesn’t entail too many changes and just tries to enhance what was already there in Dynamics SL CU5.
