What is Blu-Ray DVDWritten by Ryan Fyfe
Video technology has increased significantly over past years, and is continuing to grow at an incredible rate. Digital Video Disc’s aka DVD’s are most likely last big jump in consumer video technology that everyone is familiar with. To keep up with ever advancing world of electronics a new format of video storage will be released soon called Blu-ray.
Blu-Ray is a next generation optical disc that will blow socks off of what we all know today: DVD. Conventional DVD’s use a red laser that have long wave lengths, which limits storage capacity on a disc. Blu-Ray uses a blue laser which has much shorter wave lengths. Because wave lengths on Blu-Ray are much smaller it can focus on a spot with much greater precision, allowing for data to be packed much more tightly than red laser DVD’s.
Blu-Ray discs can hold up to 50GB’s of information which 10 times that of a 4.5GB DVD. 10 times storage will greatly increase
Reporting for Microsoft Great Plains/Dynamics/eEnterprise: RW – ReportWriter – tips for developerWritten by Andrew Karasev
Microsoft Business Solutions Great Plains is written in Great Plains Software programming tool: Great Plains Dexterity. Dexterity in turn was built with conception of graphical cross-platform transferability (in time – 1992 – mostly Mac and MS Windows). Plus Dexterity had database abstraction level (through C programming language). The result of such a shrewd future-looking architecture – Great Plains ReportWriter has multiple restrictions and drawbacks. Let’s first look at advantages of using ReportWriter: •Seamless integration with Great Plains forms – most typical scenario – you modify SOP_Long_Invoice_Form or SOP_Blank_Invoice_From and then print your invoices with modified form – usually with your logo and changed formats and positions of fields •Parameters Entry Forms. Each existing report (Reports section) has associated parameters entry form. Restrictions: •No Cross-Modules links. You can not associate report with tables from non-related modules. For example you can not have Sales Order Processing (SOP) and Purchase Order Processing data on same report (you actually can – but you need Dexterity programmer help) •Custom Reports. You do not have parameters entry interface for your custom reports, but you could use restrictions to restrict selection. Custom reports could be used to export data from Great Plains in text (and then Excel format)
