History of Dexterity
Great Plains Dexterity - is proprietary programming language and technology, designed in the early 1990s with the goal to build a platform-independent graphical accounting package - Great Plains Dynamics. Dexterity itself is written in C (with the hope that C would provide platform independence). You can install Dexterity from Great Plains 7.5 CD #2. It requires a lot of learning and training, but it allows custom pieces to be seamlessly integrated with the Great Plains interface.
Great Plains macros are also recorded in Dexterity. The ability to handle branches does not appear to exist in these macros.
