Update Web Services Server Location in All Companies in Microsoft Dynamics GP

Microsoft Dynamics GPI have a few clients with many company in Microsoft Dynamics GP (and one with well over 100) so doing upgrades or live to test backups can require a fair few, potentially time consuming, changes to data. I've posted scripts to update email addresses on test in bulk before as well as a few other variations. One recent one which has come up a couple of times, is the web services server location.

In the Workflow Setup window (Administration area page » Setup » System » Workflow Setup) is a field for the Web Services Server Location; this is the server where the web services have been installed and will be different for a standalone test server to live. Rather than have to move between several dozen companies changing this setting one at a time, the following script can be run to make the change in all companies.

The first highlighted section is the new server location and the second the current one:

DECLARE @SQL NVARCHAR(MAX) SET @SQL = STUFF(( SELECT CHAR(13) + 'UPDATE WF SET Web_Service_Server = ''test.example.co.uk'' FROM ' + INTERID + '.dbo.WF00100 AS WF WHERE Web_Service_Server = ''live.example.co.uk''' FROM DYNAMICS.dbo.SY01500 FOR XML PATH(''), TYPE).value('.', 'NVARCHAR(MAX)'), 1, 1, '') EXEC sys.sp_executesql @SQL

The second element is there to make sure the script is only run in companies in which the workflow setup has been completed.
