Be sure all users are out of Microsoft Dynamics GP before beginning.  Make a backup of REPORTS.DIC (usually located in the Dictionaries folder in the shared GP folder).  To make a backup, copy and paste.  Delete REPORTS.DIC (usually located in the Dictionaries folder in the shared GP folder).

Now, launch Microsoft Dynamics GP.  Any user with Report Writer access can log into Microsoft Dynamics GP.  Go to Microsoft Dynamics GP, click Tools, choose Customize, and open Report Writer.  Select Microsoft Dynamics GP and click OK.

Once in Report Writer, select Import.  Browse out to the backup (copy) of the REPORTS.DIC file created in Step 2.  Insert each report from the left side into the right side.  This will have to do be done one at a time.  Click Import.  When the import is done, click OK.

To go back into Microsoft Dynamics GP, go to File and choose Microsoft Dynamics GP.
