Title:Recreating reports.dic in Dynamics GP

Can I come up for air yet? Talk Pictureabout a busy month. January is always crazy but for some reason it seems this past month has been extra intense. Now that Year end closes are coming less frequent and 1099's, W-2's etc. should be about done maybe I'll be able to call in sick a time or two and head up to The Big.

One common issue I've seen rear it's ugly head is not being able to print reports after applying a SP or Year End update. GP will either crash before the report is done or will error out and not give you a report. Is it me or has SP's and Year End Updates continually gotten more difficult over the years? I don't even waste time with trying to update the Reports.dic file anymore. I go simply to recreating. Here is the process:

Method 1

  1. Make a backup of reports.dic
  2. Go to Microsoft Dynamics GP>>tools>>customize>>customization maintenance
  3. Highlight all reports and choose export. Export this out to a package file
  4. Have everyone get out of GP
  5. Delete the reports.dic file
  6. Log into GP again and go to GP>>tools>>customize>>customization maintenance
  7. Choose import and select the package file created in step 3

Method 2

  1. Make a backup of reports.dic
  2. Delete reports.dic (or rename reports.dic path to reports2.dic in dynamics.set if you don’t want to kick everyone out of GP)
  3. Log into GP and go to Microsoft Dynamics GP>>tools>>customize>>report writer
  4. Choose Import on the right hand side of the reports menu
  5. Browse out to the copy of the reports.dic file created in step 1
  6. Insert each report (makes you do it one by one)
  7. Choose import
  8. If you created a reports2.dic file in step 2 rename the file back to reports.dic

Method 2 allows you to recreate without having everyone get out of GP. However, you most likely will have to get everyone out to rename the file back to reports.dic in step 8 of method 2.
