•Dexterity Forms - if you like VBA and are comfortable to do all business logic in VBA - you can use Dexterity as new forms creator/editor. This is OK - but you have to purchase VBA/Modifier and Customization Site Enabler from MBS. •Great Plains Alternate Forms. These are modification to existing forms – ones found in DYNAMICS.DIC. The most popular customization are made on SOP Entry form. If you are designing your customization – we recommend you to avoid alternate forms – problem is customization version upgrade. In case of alternate form – customization should be redone.
Some restrictions. Great Plains is actually integration of multiple dictionaries: DYNAMICS.DIC, ADVSECUR.DIC, EXP1493.DIC, etc. In your Dexterity customization you can deal with one dictionary - DYNAMICS.DIC. If you need cross dictionaries customization - consider using SQL Stored Procs for crossing dictionary borders and pulling data/making changes in other dictionary.
You can always have us help you with customization. Call us: 1-866-528-0577, 1-630-961-5918.
