SQL Script to Notify When Upgrade Complete

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis SQL script was written for a client with a large number of databases and which took a long time to update and they needed to upgrade through several versions of Microsoft Dynamics GP. The script checks for start and end times in the DB_UPGRADE table; when they match for all rows, an error is raised.

The script was scheduled using SQL Server Agent which was configured to send an email when the error was raised; this allowed him to know when part of the upgrade had completed and the next stage needed to be started.

DECLARE @UpgradeComplete AS INT

	@UpgradeComplete = CASE WHEN COUNT(PRODID) = 0 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END
	start_time = stop_time

IF (@UpgradeComplete = 1)
	throw error because all companies upgraded
	if <> 0, that means upgrade still running and nothing needs to occur
	RAISERROR ('GP 2016 upgrade complete; next stage needs to be started',11,1)
