Removing Sample Company Date Message in Microsoft Dynamics GP v10

This one comes courtesy of Leslie Vail, MVP directly from the Microsoft Dynamics GP Technical Airlift, held in Fargo, North Dakota from May 28 - May 29. Leslie was in awe with a few new tricks she learned from the Dex god -- you need to be around long enough to know who this person is, go Perth!

How many times you wish you could vanish that annoying sample companany date message box? How many times you wished you could set the user date to something else when login in? Everyone knows that a customer demo is crucial and 2017 is not quite what most customers have in mind when you open up a demo environment. The answers are all here now! You are looking at a few new Dex.ini settings that allow you to do just that!

Edit the dex.ini file and include one of the following:

SampleDateMsg=FALSE - will prevent the dialog box from being displayed while leaving the date as April 12, 2017

SampleDateMMDDYYYY=00000000 - will prevent the dialog box from being displayed and to use the current system date.

SampleDateMMDDYYYY=MMDDYYYY - will prevent the dialog box from being displayed and to use a user-specified date (replace the placeholder MMDDYYYY with the month, day, and year. For example, May 15, 2015 would be: SAMPLEDATEMMDDYYYY=05152015)
Enjoy these Dex.ini settings! I know I am.

Until next post!
