budgeting and planning (LBP) - Good app or just okay?    

Started by  Barry Ghotra
We are currently using lawson's financial applications (Version 9) and are currently loading budget using excel and interface to GL budget tables. The management is looking at buying a budgeting and planning application/module. We are debating whether to use Lawson's LBP module or buy a third party tool/application I understand their are pros-n-cons with either approach and the big one being Lawson's tight integration if the financials and budgeting software to come from the same provider. But ...

Copying Actuals to Budget    

Started by  Michael
Hello! Has anyone encountered any issues copying actuals into budget. We are trying to migrate actuals to budget using bulk copy (FB120). Base currency version goes in just fine, but when we want to copy actuals into the reporting currency version it still brings amounts in base but uses US1 as the currency (doesn't do translation). Thanks in advance for suggestions. - Michael.

Metric and Formula Models to Calc PTO    

Started by  RickARHS
I am new to LBP and just getting my feet wet. We would like for the PTO dollars to be calculated based on a provided by users, then that PTO dollar amount be pulled out of the salaries total. If salaries and wages were $100,000 with 10 PTO, the result would be salaries and wages = $90,000 and PTO = $10,000. When we try to set this up we get a circular reference error. Can we create sub-accounts that can hold the original salaries and wages total, then calculate PTO based on this and ret...

LBP - Backup Notification    

Started by  Askeptic
Hello, We have a new install of LBP and when a user logs in, they get the 'Backup Notification' pop-up from LBP. While they can simply click OK to be reminded in a day, or upon their next successful login attempt, we are looking to hide this message completely. Is there a way to do this other than actually running a full backup of the server through LBP Message: Backup Notification No records of a successful backup Thank you! LBP (Patch 8) S3

General LBP Maintenance    

Started by  ErikaS
Hello... We are in the initial phases of implementing LBP (this is the first week of training/prototyping) and I can't seem to find any documentation on how to maintain LBP data. We have 5 productlines that we constantly move data to and from for our other Lawson implementations (Finance and HR) , with one productline 'attached' to LBP. Typically, I refresh data from one productline to another with expsysdb and impexp. Can I still use these commands to move data to my attached LBP pro...

Crystal Reports from LBP    

Started by  Donna
My client is implementing LBP.  I am hoping to contact another Crystal developer who has prepared reports from LBP data.  My client is using Attributes for Budget Groups. I am very experienced with Crystal and have used attributes in financial reports but the LBP database is new to me.  it will probably be next week before I have access to the files or views. Any tips would be very welcome. Thank you.

LBP - Custom URL Failed for an unknown reason.    

Started by  Lorena
Hi, When trying to run an LBP report I get the following Error Message: 'Custom URL Parameter Failed for an unknown reason' Lawson Global Support has not been able to assist thus far and the only article ID:557222 I found did not resolve my problem. After hours of diagnosing if it is a Port issue, URL settings issue, IIS websphere issue, it appears that LBP cannot communicate with LBI. The LBP reports are lawson solution pack reports that were deployed successfully some time ago. ...

Any suggestions on 'Best Practices' reading Thanks Jeff
