Make Reconciling Effortless with the Reconcile to GL Utility for Microsoft Dynamics GP

Reconciling your accounts receivable and accounts payable subsidiary modules to the general ledger is never an easy or fun task. Sometimes, you’re spot on; other times, you’re drowning in a sea of detailed trial balances and have the pleasure of analyzing data one line after another. However, this task has been made much easier in Microsoft Dynamics GP with the Reconcile to GL utility.

The Reconcile to GL utility allows you to select the subsidiary ledger you would like to reconcile, either Payables or Receivables. When the utility is run, it will produce an Excel spreadsheet that compares all of the subsidiary module transactions to the general ledger and will break the transactions into 3 distinct areas: Unmatched Transactions, Potentially Matched Transactions, and Matched Transactions. Thus identifying the transactions causing the reconciliation differences and letting you know what needs to be fixed.

    Attention Microsoft Dynamics GP Version 10.0 Customers
    The End is Near for Mainstream Support

    October 9, 2012, marks the end of Microsoft's Mainstream Support coverage for Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0.

    Microsoft will provide a 2012 Year-End Update to all U.S and Canadian Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 customers. Microsoft also will provide Round 1 U.S. tax tables for the 2013 Payroll reporting. However, no additional code updates will be released for Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0.

    Technical support for Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 will be provided during the Extended Support phase, which is scheduled to end on October 10, 2017. This means that Microsoft and The Resource Group will continue to support customers on Microsoft Dynamics GP 10.0 throughout this extended period, but no code changes (e.g. Hot Fixes, Service Packs) will be made for that version.

    To continue to receive regulatory and/or code updates following the January 2013 Round 1 Tax Update, you must upgrade to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 or Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 (due for release in December 2012).

    Information on Upgrading Microsoft Dynamics GP

    Please contact your Customer Account Manager at The Resource Group ( or for more information regarding the time and cost commitment of a software upgrade.

    IT-Free Microsoft Dynamics GP, Why the Cloud May Be Right for You

    There is a lot of buzz around Cloud computing solutions. If you are looking to upgrade your Microsoft Dynamics® GP system to the current version, does it make sense for you to consider moving your solution to the Cloud?

    Here are some reasons why Microsoft Dynamics GP in the Cloud may be right for you:

    • No need to buy a server: Because the software is hosted on remote servers, the entire infrastructure needed to run Microsoft Dynamics GP is taken care of for you.
    • Keep your workstation: The minimum requirements to run Microsoft Dynamics GP in a hosted environment are much lower than on-premise, which minimizes costly upgrades.
    • Fewer IT resources: Microsoft Dynamics GP can be IT free. No need to worry your IT department to keep a server running, updated and backed-up. Get a new computer? No problem. You can easily access your hosted Microsoft Dynamics GP system in a few minutes with support from your Cloud provider.
