Got the below email from Terry Heley
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.
