The Technology Corner - Microsoft Office 2010 and Microsoft Dynamics GP v10
Thanks to the MVP Award Program
, I got a hold of Microsoft Office 2010 Professional Technical Preview
. While the Technical Preview copy has been out since the beginning of July via Microsoft MVP Connect Services
, I have just come around to installing it and testing the traditional Dynamics GP operations with SmartLists and Navigation Lists. I have to say I am pretty impressed, but before we get there, let's take a look at a few Microsoft Office 2010 improvements.The New Startup Splashes
Well, the old saying has it that "food enters through the eyes
" and Office 2010 is not the exception. Microsoft has departed from the old boring splashes to some really modern polychromatic animated art. Here are a few artworks for some of the most recognized products within the suite.
The installation process went pretty smooth and I was surprised to see all…

Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 and Office Web Components
A recurring question throughout these days of upgrades to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010 is what version of Microsoft Office Web Components (OWC) is compatible with Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010. In this article, I will address this question by explaining what is OWC and how it is used.
OWC are a collection of Component Object Model (COM) controls for publishing spreadsheets, charts, and databases to the Web and are required to support the display of metrics on a Microsoft Dynamics GP home page. These components have been released with various versions of Microsoft Office, as shown below.Source: OfficeBlogs.net

Microsoft Dynamics ERP Gets In-Depth OCS Integration
Forward looking communication professionals have been asking why phone handsets are an “island by themselves” for quite a while. Microsoft has taken a huge step in making your communication system (formerly known as a phone system—but that terminology is getting outdated) an integral part of your business management solution. Visionary professionals in the communication industry say this merging will have transformational possibilities in organizations—and I am seeing this first hand.?xml:namespace prefix = o /

Changing the color scheme for Office 2007
There are many things I love about Office 2007. I think the ribbon is great and I cannot even remember how to work without it when I am on a computer with an older version of Office. But what I have always wondered is who decided that baby blue was the right choice for a default color scheme in Office 2007. Every time I see it I want to cringe. Maybe I am just…

Dynamics POS 2009, Dynamics GP & Microsoft Office Accounting: Becoming Less Integrated
I had a quick chat with Dynamics POS program manager, Michael Griffiths, at Convergence 2009 about the roadmap for Microsoft Retail Management System or what will become Dynamics POS 2009. It sounds like version 2009 will be a major facelift to the current RMS. It will combine the current RMS and POS products into one product…
Organization Mandated Software: OpenOffice or Microsoft Office?
Just today another incident came up that once again strengthened my opinion in the value of having company mandated standard software organization wide.
Here was the incident:
We recieved a template to label the buttons on our phone handsets from one of our vendors that just didn't quite fit and line up when I printed it from Microsoft Word. One of our techs spent a bit of time getting this to line up just perfect. (you know the time it takes, nudge here, print, nudge there...) After he was all done I said "Hey I want that" to avoid going through that row…

Microsoft Dynamics GP and 2007 Microsoft Office Suite

So what a I talking about exactly?
