The Dynamics SL User Group conference relies on numerous volunteers for a comprehensive and multi-day schedule of content on everything from Customizations to Project/Payroll.  As we approach the conference this year we still have a few sessions left to find speakers for. We want you!  Yes you! Does public speaking make you nervous? Or are you completely chill in front of an audience?

For those who are unfamiliar with presenting at a DSLUG conference, you work with a content-specific track chair that: ensures you are able to find the ...

I had a great time at the 2018 DSLUG conference in St. Louis and hope everyone else did as well! I have been settling back in at work and making plans to implement some of the great ideas I learned at the conference throughout the rest of this year.  In that time of reflection I also wanted to take a few minutes to write a few thank you notes. Thank you, escalators,  for making sure that even when I was getting extra steps in between the buildings I didn't get too many steps. Thank you, spouse,  for holding down the fort while I was gone for nearly a week. Thank you, St. Louis,  for being so centrally located that I didn't have any late night or ...

As part of our recent website upgrade, we’ve enhanced the options available to you for regaining access to your account should you happen to forget your password.  With so many passwords to so many different online accounts these days, we’ve likely all been through the Forgot Password process a time or two (“Does this one need a symbol or prohibit symbols? Do I need a number in this one? Does it need to be at least 7 characters or 10? Capital AND lower case letters?”).   We want to make it easy.  Now, you can provide your cell phone number and a secondary email address that you can use to reset your user group password should the need arise.  I encourage you ...

Please Note: Using this blog editor is very difficult.  Please excuse any spacing errors, uneven indention and an occasional errors in numbered outline items. Introduction: I have found over time that there are never enough ‘User’ fields in a Dynamics SL table. The solution to this problem is to create a ‘sibling’ table in the database and integrate it into then maintenance screen, using VBA and the VBA API functions. In this example, the table extension is being added to a screen that is shown in a spreadsheet control.  The code is a little more extensive than adding to a ‘Normal’ level screen that processes one row at a time. A real world application ...
