The 941 Report in Dynamics GP Comes Up Blank

Problem:

The 941 Report window in Dynamics GP (Reports > Payroll > Quarter End and then select a quarter and choose the Form 941 report) doesn't allow you pick which year you want to run the report for.   Instead it automatically assumes you want to run the report for the current year.    This causes you a problem in the beginning of year if you are trying to run the Form 941 report for the 4th quarter of the prior year.   You want to run the report for the 4th quarter of 2012, but since you are in January of 2013 the window assumes you want the 4th quarter of 2013, so the report comes up blank because you don't have any data yet for the 4th quarter of 2013.   Many people initially think this is bug in Dynamics GP related to the year end payroll close, because this problem typically comes up in January right after the year end payroll update was applied.    But it is more just a bug in the 941 report window.

Solution:
Temporarily change your user date in GP to 2012 and then re-run the report.   You can change your user date by just clicking on the user date in the lower left hand corner of the Dynamics GP screen.

Applies to:   Dynamics GP 10 and GP 2010.    May also apply to older versions but we don't know that for sure.
