Utilize the Dynamics GP PSTL Part VII: Miscellaneous Tools

This is Part VII and the final blog from my previous blogs on utilizing the Dynamics GP Professional Services Tool Library (PSTL.)  The six previous blogs addressed the System, Financial, Purchasing, Sales, Inventory, and Payroll sections.  In this blog, I wanted to discuss the two Miscellaneous Tools listed under the Misc Tools Grid: Fixed Assets Modifier and Minimum PO/Receipt Number.

Misc Tools:

When running any PSTL tool, always remember to make a backup before performing the action.

Fixed Assets Modifier

This tool enables the user to change an asset number of an existing asset.

To Modify or reclassify an Asset ID:

  • Start the PSTL function in Dynamics GP
  • Select the Fixed Assets Modifier option
  • Click Next
  • Enter an Existing Asset ID
  • Enter the New Asset ID
  • Click the Change Button

Note:  The table that will be updated with the new Asset ID are: FA00100, FA00700, FA00701, FA00800, FA00801, FA01002, FA01100, FA01300, and FA10200.

Minimum PO/Receipt Number

This tool enables the user to set the minimum PO Number or Receipt Number for the defaults when creating a new Purchase Order or Receipt.  It further allows the user to disable the use of previous PO and Receipt Numbers.

To Activate the Minimum PO/Receipt Number option in Dynamics GP in the PSTL

To never utilize previous PO Numbers or Receipt Numbers:

  • Select Microsoft Dynamics GP – Tools – Setup – Purchasing – Purchasing Order Processing
  • Select the Additional Option

Note – The document number must be the same length as the original Minimum PO Number for this option to perform.
