Information about the credit card number field that was removed from SmartList and from Advanced Lookups in Microsoft Dynamics GP


INTRODUCTION


This article contains information about the credit card number field that was removed from SmartList and from Advanced Lookups starting with Microsoft Dynamics GP 9.0 and Microsoft Business Solutions - Great Plains 8.0 Service Pack 4a.

More Information


The credit card number field was removed from SmartList and from Advanced Lookups because of customer requests.

To display credit card numbers, use one of the following methods:
  • Enter the credit card number in an alternative field from the Customer Maintenance window, and then add that field to the SmartList list or to the Advanced Lookups dialog box. For example, if you do not use the Comment 1 field in the Customer Maintenance window, you can enter the customer's credit card number in this field. You can then add the Comment 1 column to your SmartList list. However, you cannot rename the field.
  • Use Report Writer to modify an existing report or to create a custom report. The table and field information will vary according to the module in which the transaction was entered.

    For more information about how to modify or customize a report, contact Microsoft Dynamics GP technical support. For information about technical support for Microsoft Dynamics GP, visit the following Microsoft Web site:

Note Microsoft Dynamics GP does not encrypt credit card information. If you have to encrypt the credit card information, you must use a third-party solution. To find an independent software vendor (ISV) solution to meet this requirement, visit one of the following Microsoft Web sites, depending on whether you are a partner or a customer.
