    Hi Devon,

    How does one copy the existing, out of the box, smartlist? My client would like to start with a SL then expand on it in SLB. I know I can find the table and joins in the sdk. But if a client has spent money on SLB…I think they should be able to do it in the SLB interface?

    Thanks For any help.

      Yeah – sorry… it doesn’t work that way. I spend a lot of time re-making the “default” SmartLists so that I can add the fields that my clients want.

      MS Dynamics GP does have downloads of “pre-made” Smartlists for builder (XML that you can import) on PartnerSource. BUT, although the names are the same as the “default” SmartLists, they are missing many of the features of the “default” SmartLists (goto’s etc.)

      Yikes! I was wrong – sort of. See my new post on this…
