Forecaster Users and Dynamics GP Users

Do you ever have an issue come up, and you know you read about it somewhere...but you just can't find the KB article or the blog lnk. But it still keeps eating at you?

That happened to me this morning, when a client had tried to take her Dynamics GP user ID and make it work for Forecaster 7. Needless to say, it didn't work :) Because of the encryption that GP uses when creating a user ID in SQL, that same user ID will not work with Forecaster even if you assign the appropriate database permissions.

I thought I would post it here, so I remember it the next time :) The client does get points for trying to be efficient, though.
