I don't know the program, but in http://ezinearticles.com/?Microsoft-Great-Plains-Reporting---Overview-for-Developer&id=1569 I read about Smart List.
At work I needed some information on my department's budget so I went to fiscal services where they printed me out a "Detailed Trial Balance" report from Great Plains. I then asked if I could possibly have that report in excel form so I could work with the data. I personally do not want to have to spend the time to enter it in AGAIN. I was told that Great Plains cannot export into excel. I kind of find this hard to believe. I was also told that "maybe we need an extra module for that and we don't have it" Anyone familiar with this software that can give me some insight? Sorry but I don't know the version.
