Extract window


This window is used when you develop your application in the Dynamics.dic dictionary, then want to create a dictionary to operate with Microsoft Dynamics GP in multidictionary mode. The extract utility copies, or "extracts" resources with resource IDs 22,000 or greater from the Dynamics.dic dictionary and places them in a separate dictionary. The extract process excludes any Microsoft Dynamics GP resources, since these resource IDs are numbered below 22,000.

The Extract utility only copies resources from the modified Dynamics.dic dictionary. It doesn't remove any resources from the dictionary.

Modified forms and reports are not transferred by the Extract utility. You must use the Transfer Dictionary Module window to transfer modified forms and reports to the extracted dictionary. Refer to the Integration Guide for more information.

You can't perform any development in the extracted dictionary. Opening the extracted dictionary with Dexterity and attempting to make changes could corrupt the dictionary. Instead, you must make changes in the modified Dynamics.dic dictionary, then re-extract.

Refer to the following topic for more information about the Extract utility:
