Quote of the Issue
"Conscience is the inner voice that warns us somebody may be looking."
-- H. L. Mencken
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. 
Inventory Valuation for non-perpetual location
Is anyone willing to share how they process Inventory Valuation for non-perpetual location? We are currently running Crystal reports to pull in the pricing, UOM, etc., then export the report that our GOR staff use as count sheets. Any help would be appreciated! Read More...

How are PF Workunits maintained once IPA is activated?
We have recently installed Landmark in our test environment and have activated the federation of users. We have also set the PF flag and flipped the switch to process the flows on landmark. Could someone please give me a 'background' explanation on how the PF's interact between Lawson and Landmark? Read More...
457 plan on Employee Self Service (ESS)
We would like for our employees to be able to enroll, stop or update their 457 benefit via ESS. However, upon setting it up and doing some initial testing, it only partially works. If the employee is stopping the benefit or using a percentage, it works. If the employee puts in an annual amount, it is annualizing the amount again. Does anyone use ESS for 457? If so, can you share your setup with me? Read More...
Infor Workspace/Ming.le & IE Compatibility View
My company is in the process of migrating from Lawson 9.0 to Lawson 10.0 with Workspace as the UI. We have run into a problem after logging into Workspace where Internet Explorer gives us the dreaded "Microsoft Internet Explorer 7 on Windows is not supported" message. Of course we are not running IE7 on our PC's, most are running IE8. Read More...
Thanks for your continued support of the LawsonGuru Letter and LawsonGuru.com.
