Jet Reports – GP Update Utility

Jet Reports for Dynamics GP comes with a very good selection of sample reports.  These sample reports are an excellent resource – not only to see what Jet Basics does, but how the reports are built!

Many of those sample reports rely on something called ‘Friendly Names’.
Friendly names are names that properly describe the content of that SQL Table, or SQL View… they are, well, friendly 🙂  Rather than your typical naming convention for GP – like GL20000.

Not only are the sample reports built using these friendly names, but it makes it much easier to use.

Also Jet Reports comes with several useful SQL Views… both the friendly names and SQL Views get installed using the GP Update Utility.
Below is a quick guide on how to use the GP Update Utility – PRO TIP!  It’s ok to add this later but I 100% recommend doing this before getting started.
