On Unique Password Creation In Dynamics GP Implementations

For the last several months, much of my time has been focused toward the implementation of Microsoft Dynamics GP10. Over the course of this project, the team I work with and I encountered many challenges, some of which I hope to turn into content on this blog. I am writing about this topic first primarily because Michael Johnson was talking to Mariano Gomez about a password creation macro I created. Mariano wanted to write a blog article about it and I realized this would be a good opportunity to inject some content into this blog by writing an article myself.

One my tasks with the implementation of GP10 was to reset all the users' passwords to keep them from connecting to the system while we upgraded it, then make this password known to the user to allow entry into the new system. To do this I needed 5 things.
