But in Microsoft Dynamics GP version 2013, the Smartlist processing speed has been improved, and with or without the line, Smartlist exports run much quicker. So, WHY am I still using the DEX.INI line in GP 2013? Well, it turns out that to speed up the export for smartlist processing, the formatting of the exports has been limited. Therefore, my excel exports now always show results up to five decimal places, and for most of the amount fields, our users want to see the results rounded to two decimal places. If I put this same line in the Dex.ini file, the system will format the export, and continue to report in two decimal places!
