Pushing changes from GP Report Writer to Word Templates

May 2, 2017

If you want to propagate changes from the basic RW report, here are the steps:

  1. * Add field(s) and make changes to the basic RW report.


  2. * Print to an XML file a sample of the GP Report that you changed, SOP Invoice for example.


  3. * Open the Modified Word Template, Developer Tab, select the particular XML file as Source, and click the Remove Source button.

    • This first requires that the Word Add-On for GP was installed from the GP install disk. It also requires that it is installed for each user profile on the network that intend to use this Developer Tab.)

    • * The Developer Tab is where you can see the GP field list and can add captions and fields.

    • * The Developer Tab is exposed in Office 2010 ++ by "Customizing the Ribbon".

  4. * Then Add Source using the saved XML file from the RW report that you just created in step 2 above.

  5. * Pick the field from the Navigation pane on the left. Put it in the correct section (same as in RW report).




  6. * Save the Modified Word Template (Save As - a new file name) to the Report Template folder, under the Dynamics GP. (see the blog on Modifying Word Templates).

  7. * Click the Plus sign on the Template window to overwrite that template back into the database. (See the blog on modifying Word Templates).
