2. Open the following folder:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Great Plains\eConnect9\Objects\DOT NET

3. Click the eConnect.MiscRoutines.dll reference.
4. Under .NET , click the System.Enterprise.Services reference.

Microsoft Visual C#

//C#using System;using System.Collections.Generic;using System.Text;using Microsoft.GreatPlains.eConnect.MiscRoutines;namespace MiscRoutinesConsole{    class ClassMiscRoutines    {        static void Main(string[] args)        {            try            {                string cnString = @"Data Source=MYSERVER;initial catalog=TWO;integrated security=SSPI;                persist security info=False;packet size=4096";                                GetNextDocNumbers oNextDoc = new GetNextDocNumbers();                string nextPMPaymentNumber = "";                nextPMPaymentNumber = oNextDoc.GetNextPMPaymentNumber(GetNextDocNumbers.IncrementDecrement.Increment, cnString);                Console.WriteLine("The next PM Payment Number is " + nextPMPaymentNumber);                Console.WriteLine("Press <Enter> to close...");                Console.Read();            }            catch (Exception ex)            {                Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString());                Console.WriteLine("Press <Enter> to close...");                Console.Read();            }        }    }} 

Microsoft Visual Basic .NET 2003

'Visual Basic .NETImports Microsoft.GreatPlains.eConnect.MiscRoutinesModule MiscRoutines    Sub Main()        Try            Dim cnString As String = "Data Source=MYSERVER;initial catalog=TWO;integrated security=SSPI;            persist security info=False;packet size=4096"                        Dim oNextDoc As New GetNextDocNumbers()            Dim nextPMPaymentNumber As String = ""            nextPMPaymentNumber = oNextDoc.GetNextPMPaymentNumber(GetNextDocNumbers.IncrementDecrement.Increment, cnString)            Console.WriteLine("The next PM Payment Number is " & nextPMPaymentNumber)            Console.WriteLine("Press <Enter> to close...")            Console.Read()        Catch ex As Exception            Console.WriteLine(ex.ToString())            Console.WriteLine("Press <Enter> to close...")            Console.Read()        End Try    End SubEnd Module
