Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Reporting - Second Edition

I had the pleasure of reviewing David & Chris's first edition of this book a couple years ago and now the even greater pleasure of reviewing the second edition.  I have to say that the knowledge David and Chris possess, not just about GP Reporting, but the Dynamics GP product and ERP systems in general, is just mind-boggling.  That base of knowledge they possess shines through in this update to their first edition.
Having worked directly with both these gentlemen, I can honestly say that there are very few people in the world who have such comprehensive knowledge about GP and the ability to share that knowledge via the written word.
This Second Edition incorporates all the knowledge shared in the first edition but is further updated to include all the reporting enhancements rolled out with GP 2013 and SQL 2012, which are considerable.
The book not only covers all the reporting options available in GP 2013 and previous GP versions but also provides a framework for developing a cohesive reporting strategy for your organization.
From SmartList to Report Writer, from Excel Report Builder to Management Reporter, Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Reporting, Second Edition provides an overview of all of the report types, plus technical instruction on how to use and get the most of each of the report development tools. 

Whether you're a GP report developer or a GP user who's curious about the myriad reporting options now provided in the application, this book needs to be in your library.  I highly recommend it. 
Pick up your copy from Packt or one of these other book retailers:

Review of Victoria Yudin's 'Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Implementation'

Having just reviewed Victoria Yudin's new book this week I can say 'wow - what a treasure trove of information'.  You can tell from the very beginning that the book was written by someone who knows implementing GP cold.  A person could literally sit down with SQL Server and GP install media in one hand, this book in the other and install GP in an afternoon with the confidence that it has been installed properly.  But much, much further than that, the book lays out step-by-step instructions on putting together a GP implementation team, project plan, infrastructure, SQL Server and GP configuration, data migration, user training etc., etc.  Every base is covered, along with tips, tricks and traps.

If you're even considering implementing or re-implementing any version of Dynamics GP, this publication is a must have.  You can get it at Packt or any one of the booksellers below in print, ebook, or both.
Another great addition to your GP toolkit.  Way to go Victoria!
