SQL script to populate the Payables Distribution Type SETP (PM40103) table

Microsoft Dynamics GPI recently wrote a report for a client which included payables distributions; in order to output the distribution type, I joined to the Payables Distribution Type SETP (PM40103) table. Unfortunately, when the report was deployed, it didn’t work: all of the rows had a blank distribution type.

When I investigated I found that the Payables Distribution Type SETP (PM40103) table was empty. My demo environment is running Fabrikam and had fifteen rows of data, so I decided to migrate my table content to the clients system using a simple SQL script to insert the extracted rows.

The script is a simple one which doesn’t do any checking so confirm the table is empty before running.
