Slowing Down To Speed Up
In case you haven't noticed, the world is spinning faster-at least it often seems that way.  Read More
Quote of the Issue
"You can only be young once. But you can always be immature."

Welcome to the latest issue of The LawsonGuru Letter, a free newsletter providing provocative commentary on issues important to the Lawson Software community.  The LawsonGuru Letter is published by-and is solely the opinion of-John Henley of Decision Analytics.
LP Accruals and Minimum Time Records
During our LP migration from TA we have noticed that employees are not required to have any time records to accrue leave (the opposite from TA). So employees on an unpaid leave status are still accruing leave.  Now we have to build a calculation on LP07 to figure in minimum hours by pay code to allow/not allow employees to accrue leave.  Has anyone else run into this problem?  We are looking for an example, or description, of the calculation.  Read More...
AP: Number of Check Runs
Is there a way to find out how many check runs, or in Lawson terms how many times AP150, AP155, or AP170 has been run for a given time frame? I can build a report if needed, but I don't know if there is a table that houses that info.  Read More...
Using Smart Notifications To Query LDAP
I am using smart notifications to query LDAP and am able to get data. However I need certain fields in a container and I am not able to write the right syntax to query LDAP to get data for only certain fields. Has anyone able to get this to work and can share the exact syntax for those queries.  Read More...

is there a way to send a copy of an employee's payroll stub electronically to their email address?  Read More...
Thanks for joining us this month.
