Computer Voodoo - When odd things happen on your computer
The longer a computer runs without a restart the more junk builds up causing issues ranging from connectivity to security to performance (and the list goes on). Rebooting a computer gives it a fresh start and can fix many of these issues.
Generally it is a good practice to reboot your computer every few days (at a minimum).
Dynamics GP - When the GL Account Number Display is Truncated
Depending on the number and length of your GL account segments, the account number display may be truncated on some windows.
You can adjust the account number display within Dynamics GP by going to Tools è Setup è Company è Account Format and changing the Display Width on each segment from "Standard" to "Expansion 1" or "Expansion 2" or "Expansion 3". This allows more room for that segment to display on the window.
If your account number is very large (e.g. 6 segments with a total length of 30) this approach may not be effective. The Modifier with VBA module can be used to expand the display even more.
