I'd like to discuss a few nagging problems I have with Great Plains (Version 8.0.22). Microsoft has stopped supporting the software on October 13, 2009. Unfortunately, I arrived at my present position only a couple of months ago and was just made aware of this. With a tight cash flow, I can't drop $150 -- $175 an hour for a discussion of some basic principals.
Since I am learning the in's and out's of this program using the "learn as I go method" -- there is no one here that has the experience I need at the level that I have to operate -- it has been one tough row to hoe. I'm finding it nearly impossible to hold balances in the accounts at a month end and have a floating target on a/p and a/r in relation to comparisons between aged trial balances (a/p & a/r) and my GL. Not a fun place to be.
I'd also like to gain insight into the closing process for the software and the setup of a new year on the system.
