Dynamics GP: Adding Contacts and E-mail Addresses to a 1096 Form

Well, it’s that time of the year again.

1096 Modification requests should start any day from our clients. The IRS has decided to change their 1096 form adding requirements. The most common request from our clients is adding the Contact Name and E-mail Address to the 1096 form.

Contact name is relatively easy. If you’re already in the Print 1099 screen just click on the Address ID you have selected for the 1099.

  • This will open the Company Address Setup screen.
  • Scroll down to the Contact line and input the appropriate Name or Title in the available space.

Now that you are in the Company Address Setup screen scan to the right of the Address ID and you will see a small globe. This represents internet information.

  • Click on the globe
  • The internet information setup screen will appear.
  • The select information for: should default in as Company.
  • Confirm the Address ID you want to modify.
  • In the E-mail Address information area, select To: and input the e-mail address you want to assign.
    • This will trigger Exchange to try and Validate the email address, just click Cancel
  • Save the changes

You are now done with the Setup Changes. Test print your 1096 Form, your Contact name and E-mail address will print on the appropriate line.

Resolution for a Dynamics GP Error Message

Resolution for Error Message “The Cost of Goods Sold distribution is incorrect and will not be posted. Do you want to save with errors?”

Dynamics GP Error Message

Many users often encounter the above error message when trying to complete (save or post) a return in the Dynamics GP Sales Transaction Entry window. Unfortunately, the error message is obscure and doesn’t always tell you what the solution is.

The first step to diagnosing this error message is to check the accuracy of the distribution amounts and the costs associated with all items on the transaction. This analysis can be done on the Sales Transaction Entry Window, the Sales Distribution Window and from running SmartLists. There have been instances when users find errors with the Distributions and Costs, but upon trying to make the corrective adjustments they once again receive the above error.

What did we do? Well we looked within the Sales Header and Line Item tables in SQL to compare the different amounts (extended costs and distributions). After analyzing the data from the two tables, it seemed as though the extended costs in the Header tables did not match the extended costs within the Line Item tables, resulting in the Cost of Goods Sold distribution error. After updating the extended costs in the Header table to match the costs within the Line Item Table the users were able to move forward and save/post their Return.
