Title:Reports.dic file and updating SP's in 10.0
Description:Got the below email from Terry Heley (MBS payroll lead) in conjunction with the new payroll update coming out today. Sounds like a major pain for any SP updates but does sound like job security for Dynamics support people.

Basically, Make sure you update Reports.dic before you do anything. I'd probably export out all reports etc using customization maintenance. Then update the reports using Utilities (I'd probably say a prayer, cross your fingers, commence any other helpful acts of meditation and serenity etc.)

Haven't needed to do this for a SP yet but my guess is creating a new reports.dic file and importing in your old reports after the SP update would be an easier way to update the reports after a SP.

Notice no error messages will be given if you don't do this step other than some probably errors when you run the report. Nice one MBS.

A new requirement has been added to the Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 service pack, hot fix and compliance release install process. All modified reports and forms must be updated in Microsoft Dynamics GP Utilities following the database update. In the past this was only a requirement for the major release update, such as from GP 9.0 to GP 10.0. Because of data model changes, etc. that are now in the MSP patch files, the modified reports and forms must also be updated. This new process does not apply to Microsoft Dynamic GP 9.0.

The FTE System Team and VMC System Team handles the support for all service packs, hotfixes and compliance update installations on GP 9.0 and GP 10.0. The support for the new modified reports and forms update process on GP 10.0 will also be handled by the FTE and VMC System Teams.

PLEASE NOTE: If a user launches into Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 without updating the modified dictionaries, they WILL NOT get prompted to update the files. Therefore, the user might see errors running reports and accessing forms. If you have a case where a user is getting errors running a report or accessing a form following a service pack, hotfix, or compliance update, please ask if they went through the modified dictionary update process following the MSP patch install.

This new process has been added to the U.S. Payroll/Canadian Payroll Documents and the 10.0 Hotfix Install Guide. A new Hot Topic has also been published. The current hot topic indicating that GP 10.0 patches may damage the reports and forms will also be updated with this new process.

Here are the links to the new Hot Topic that is live right now. Once the March hotfix is available, this link will also be available on the hotfix download page.
