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.

Dynamics SL CU7 Now Available

Microsoft-Dynamics-SL

Just in time for the Holidays, Microsoft released some news for us. Every time the year is close to an end, we wait for those Year End Updates or anything else they might be releasing. Just last week, Microsoft came out with Dynamics SL CU7. There isn’t too much to unpack, but let’s get into it.

This update focused more on the 1099-NEC Form, as well as the 1099-MISC Form. The 1099-NEC or Non-Employee Compensation has been updated to support the IRS 2021 tax reporting formats. The same goes for the 1099-MISC (03.740.00) Form. The new 1099 Forms can be printed through the 1099 Forms Report.

In addition, some minor fixes have been included in CU7, however, support for Windows 2011 is still not included. If you have any questions about these updates, either fill out the form below or reach out to info@polaris-business.com.

Acumatica vs Dynamics SL: Mobile App

I can remember getting my first cellular phone. I had just gotten a job as a consultant for a Dynamics SL (Solomon at that time) reseller and I was told I needed one so I could be reached by clients. The phone was small and clunky, but I could make phone calls and I soon realized it had another amazing feature – texting! Phones have changed a lot since then, but sadly I still can’t do much more on my phone with SL than I could on my first cell phone.
