There are so many ways to define “expert.”  There is of course “how people perceive you” as in your reputation, but there is also “how expert are you?”  You may not have a blog or lots of Dynamics GP cronies to solicit opinions from and yet have 12 years of daily consulting work you’ve done in the Dynamics GP toolset.

The goal of this blog post is more to entertain than to educate, but we do take the “expert” thing seriously when it comes to Dynamics GP.  What people think is not always what is real.

1. You press the Control Key and the L key together when wanting a field to give you possible values from programs that are NOT Dynamics GP.

2. You respond in endless detail, about the pros and cons of creating a new report in GP Report Writer, Crystal, or SQL Reporting Services when asked which approach makes more sense.

3. You develop entirely new screens in Dexterity such as calendars and Gantt charts for your hobbies when a simple Outlook calendar or MS Project project would suffice.

4. You believe that GP 2010 is the easiest financial package around and have forsaken Quicken at home simply because “GP is easier.”

5. You were excited to show your pre-school children GP 2010’s ability to hide inactive records in lookup windows.  You told your spouse you were “a little disappointed” when they understood but did not share your enthusiasm.
