Phantom stock allocations and Dynamics GP

Users find instances of an item in inventory that claims to be allocated, but no transaction document with the same total allocations for that item exist (allocation enquiry). This happens very frequently and support will be quick to blame 3rd party products, Here I show it happening with base product. So for the question from the user is how could this happen? it is easy to show a sequence of events to replicate it.


Dynamics GP - Customer combiner/modifier and table not found errors

The Customer Combiner and Modifier is a tool that allow a customer to be merged into another customer, including account balances and historical records. The source primary records are then deleted leaving one customer. The modifier just allows the "renaming" of a customer id. For the rest of this post I will discuss the combiner, but the principles apply to the modifier too.
