SQL Scripts for Microsoft Dynamics GP: Select All Primary Keys and Generate ALTER Script

Microsoft Dynamics GPThis script is part of the SQL Scripts for Microsoft Dynamics GP where I will be posted the scripts I wrote against Microsoft Dynamics GP over the 19 years before I stopped working with Dynamics GP.

This script selects all primary keys for all tables in a database and creates the ALTER script to reapply them. It seems I created this in 2015 to allow primary keys to be exported from one Dynamics GP database and then applied against another.

Excel Snippets: Calculate Difference Between Dates

Microsoft ExcelI might not post many Excel snippets, but I’m collecting them into a small Excel Snippets series to make them easy to find.

Most, if not all, of the programming/scripting languages I work with will have a function allowing you to calculate a difference between two dates, but I always have to look them up.

It’s not too difficult in Excel; this formula can be used to work out the number of days difference between the values in cells A2 (start date) and A3 (end date):


The highlighted section can be several values depending on how you want the date difference calculated:

Unit Returns
D The number of days between the supplied dates.
M The number of months between the supplied dates.
Y The number of years between the supplied dates.
MD The number of days between the supplied dates ignoring the months and years.
YM The number of months between the supplied dates with the days and years ignored.
YD The number of days between the supplied dates with the years ignored.

More details and examples on these units are available from the Microsoft Support article which notes they don’t recommend MD, but, to be honest, I don’t see much use for any of the last three listed above.
