Great Plains - Payables Management

Our controller has asked for a report with the last 3 months of invoices entered with account of 2100 and WHO entered them?
I am having a hard time finding this information.. If I run the report in SQL, what tables would I use?  THanks!

Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Is it GP2013?  Do you have Smartlist installed?  If not then you will have to query the database directly (MS SQL)

Umm... I asked for the table names in my request -- do you care to elaborate?
Victoria YudinOwner / Dynamics GP ConsultantCommented:
I have a view on my blog that can get you most of this information:

What it will not have is the user who entered the transaction, as GP does not store that. There is a user who posted (PTDUSRID) and a user who last modified (MDFUSRID) that you can link in from both the PM30200 and PM20000 tables.

Another option for some companies is to get the user from the batch number - for example, many of our customers put the initials of the user entering invoices into the batch number.

Hope this helps.

Victoria's view and guidance is your best bet.

I've found that many GP questions that involve the word "Who" can be tough to answer, since GP just doesn't track or store that info by default.

I have a blog post that discusses this challenge in the context of GP's Activity Tracking feature.  If you anticipate that you may be asked to answer GP "who" questions in the future, you might consider selectively enabling Activity Tracking.  As I note in my post, I would only enable the minimum tracking that you think you might need.

If you need a more comprehensive solution, you might want to consider Rockton Auditor or FastPath.
