    Great Plains 10 -Analytical Accounting Error

    This message was quite annoying when my colleague created a Test Company in GP10 and restored a Production DB for R&D and Testing purpose. Analytical Accounting windows didn’t get opened and was throwing the following error message: There were several articles which cautioned / warned off from restoring only Company DB, which he is quite aware of. Because restoring another Company’s DB on to a Test Company will not have any issues unless it has got some products, like AA, depending heavily and real-time on DYNAMICS DB.

    PROBLEM : When you receive attachment in your outlook, and when you try to open it, it says ” No permission to open the attachment”

    Troubleshoot : This has nothing to do with the permission..this is because the temp folder is full…either you clear the temp folder or do the following..

    Solution : Go to REGEDIT->HKEY_CURRENT_USER ->Software ->Microsoft ->Office then click

    • 12 ->If you are using Microsoft Outlook 2007
    • 14 ->if you are using Microsoft Outlook 2010

    then click Outlook -> expand it, select Security and edit the path “OutlookSecureTempFolder

    Check the image below

     (Normally here you will see the default path..creat a temp folder under the available drive and then give the path here)
