Copy Fiscal Calendar To A New Company

● Ian Grieve ●  ● 5 Comments   ● 

Microsoft Dynamics GPI have a bit of catching up to do on writing posts, but to start the year off I am back to some SQL scripts. As I have mentioned before I have a number of clients with multiple, and in some cases well over 100, companies in Microsoft Dynamics GP.

I do try to make life easier for them when possible so have been sharing a number of scripts I have for implementing systems. One such script is one which will copy financial (fiscal) calendars from one database to another.

There are three parameters at the top which need to be set before running the script:

  1. Year
  2. Source Company
  3. Destination Company

These parameters are highlighted below:

DECLARE @Year VARCHAR(4) = '2014'
DECLARE @SourceDatabase VARCHAR(5) = 'TWO'
DECLARE @DestinationDatabase VARCHAR(5) = 'THREE'
DECLARE @SQLStatement VARCHAR(1000)

SET @SQLStatement =
	'INSERT INTO ' + @DestinationDatabase + '..SY40101
		(YEAR1,FSTFSCDY,LSTFSCDY,NUMOFPER,HISTORYR)
	--VALUES
		(SELECT
			YEAR1,FSTFSCDY,LSTFSCDY,NUMOFPER,HISTORYR
		FROM
			' + @SourceDatabase + '..SY40101
		WHERE
			(SELECT
				COUNT(YEAR1)
			FROM
				' + @DestinationDatabase + '..SY40101
			WHERE
				YEAR1 = ' + @Year + ') = 0
		AND
			YEAR1 = ' + @Year + ')'
EXEC (@SQLStatement)

SET @SQLStatement =
	'INSERT INTO ' + @DestinationDatabase + '..SY40100
		(CLOSED,SERIES,ODESCTN,FORIGIN,PERIODID,PERIODDT,PERNAME
		,PSERIES_1,PSERIES_2,PSERIES_3,PSERIES_4,PSERIES_5,PSERIES_6,
		YEAR1,PERDENDT)
	--VALUES
		(SELECT
			CLOSED,SERIES,ODESCTN,FORIGIN,PERIODID,PERIODDT,PERNAME
			,PSERIES_1,PSERIES_2,PSERIES_3,PSERIES_4,PSERIES_5,PSERIES_6,
			YEAR1,PERDENDT
		FROM
			' + @SourceDatabase + '..SY40100
		WHERE
			(SELECT
				COUNT(YEAR1)
			FROM
				' + @DestinationDatabase + '..SY40100
			WHERE
				YEAR1 = ' + @Year + ') = 0
			AND
				YEAR1 = ' + @Year + ')'
EXEC (@SQLStatement)
GO

The calendar will only be copied if the destination database does not contain a calendar with the same name.

What should we write about next?
