  • Whitney Johnson amynelson Thanks Amy! At some point the report will have to cross fiscal years, so how will I handle that if I'm running this report for Period 1 of FY2013 and need to show peirods 12 - 2 for FY2012?

    • amynelsonWhitney - I just realized that I gave you the data dictionary name wrong. CPAMT, with no @ sign for the current period amount and then @CPAMO is the name of the period for the column heading. You can use the minus 1, minus 2 for both to create the rolling.

  • Bob K TBonney I found on LawsonGuru that a little over a year ago (Feb 2011) you had an issue trying to resolve an invalid date error on an AGS call. I am having a similar problem manually loading a year end date field in AP520. How did you end up resolving that issue? Thanks.

Business Innovation Lessons From NASA
The Saturn V moon rocket, designed to fly Apollo astronauts to the moon, was 363 feet tall and was one of the most powerful rockets ever built. Yet, just eight years before the launch, NASA's leadership and engineers were intimidated by President Kennedy's 1961 declaration that we would land Americans on the moon by the end of the decade. Later, they'd confess that in those early days, they "did not even know what they did not know."

We’re Number One!

It’s not often that one gets to say “we are the best”, but Medstar Montgomery Medical Center (MMMC) now has that honor. I’ve had the privilege of working with MMMC [formerly Montgomery General Hospital] for over a decade.  Truly a fantastic group of IT professionals, and I’m proud to be part of their team!  So, […]

Another Update on Alleged Patent Infringement

Back in 2011, Lawson responded to an Alleged Patent Infringement by replacing Requisition Self-Service (RSS) with Requisition Center (RQC). In the meantime, Lawson has been acquired by Infor, but the patent case still lingers. Here’s an update. Some of you might have received this notice from Infor, and are unsure how this might impact your […]

We learned today that our dear friend, Matthew Allbee, passed away over the weekend after a long battle with cancer. The last time I saw Matt was just a couple of months ago at Inforum, and while he certainly wasn’t well, I had no idea it would be the last time we would talk. I […]

Time To Rename LawsonGuru ?

With Lawson S3 and M3 customers adopting integrated Infor products, is it time to expand and rename the LawsonGuru Letter and LawsonGuru.com? I thought it would be fun to ask the community for advice. Here are some ideas:Filed under: Infor, Infor Acquisition

Inforum 2013

I just returned from Orlando, having attended Inforum 2013. Last year’s Inforum, which quickly followed the acquisition of Lawson by Infor, was really just a combination of Lawson’s annual conference (CUE) with Infor’s name and logo slapped on for good measure. This year was quite a different story. Starting with the fact that I was actually […]
