To alleviate the potential for duplicate records when you enter, revise, or upload address book records, you can activate duplicate record validation in the Address Book system.

You may have a requirement to print separate checks for certain Vendors. Taxing entities come to mind as a prime example. If you have 5 approved vouchers in AP, a typical setup would combine them into a single payment. But you actually need separate payments for the Government, State and Local tax authorities. One method is to manually run the Create Payment Control Group and select individual Vouchers in the data selection. This is cumbersome and potentially error-prone. In the newer releases of JDEdwards, there is new functionality available to automatically accomplish this task.

You have a stand-alone installation of JDEdwards, version 8.11, 8.12 or 9.0. The web interface works pretty seamlessly and runs most of the applications. Except reports. If a report needs to be executed, it can’t be done from the web interface. Instead you have to jump on your fat client, enter BV on the fast path, and enter the desired report. This works, but is clunky and does not provide the look/feel of how reports get executed via the web interface. Is there a way to execute reports from within the web interface? Thanks to a poster, there is!

An interesting article/interview on TechCrunch. I am loving the positive outlook.  Down here in the trenches I certainly see an uptick of new business.  As companies are coming out of the recession, implementations and upgrades are on their minds.  Projects put on hold in 2008 and 2009 are finally being funded.
