SQL Scripts for Microsoft Dynamics GP: Insert Manufacturing Routings from Text File

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 uploads a text file using BULK INSERT to create manufacturing routings. There is error handling built in to check if the item, machine or route exists and will throw an error if issues are found; routings are only inserted if there are no errors.

End of On-Premises Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central Licenses in 2025

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralI had someone mention this to me yesterday and I’ve since seen confirmation on MS Dynamics World; Microsoft plans to end the sale of perpetual licences for the on-premises versions of their Microsoft Dynamics Business Central in October 2025. This means from 2025, BC will only be available under a subscription or SaaS (software-as-a-service) model.

This only effects new sales, so existing on-premises customers with perpetual licences will continue to be able to use the software as they are currently and will still be able to add users.

** Updated phrasing to clarify this is the perpetual licences which have stopped for BC; subscription licences for on-premises will continue to be available.

End of Microsoft Dynamics GP On-Premises Licenses in 2025 and Subscription Licenses in 2026

Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business CentralI had someone mention this to me yesterday and I’ve since seen confirmation on MS Dynamics World; Microsoft plans to end the sale of on-premises licences of Microsoft Dynamics GP in October 2025 and the sale of subscription licenses in 2026.

This only effects new sales, so existing customers will continue to be able to use the software as they are currently and will still be able to add users. In the short term there is no need to rush as Microsoft have previously committed to support customers through 2028. However, the end of sales of new licences does pretty much spell the end of Microsoft Dynamics GP as a living product and will have more customers looking to implement new systems.

I’d agree with what Chris Dobkins, president and CEO of Microsoft partner Njevity said to MS Dynamics World, that Microsoft may be heading for surprise at the numbers who replace Dynamics GP with Business Central; like Chris, I suspect there will be far fewer than they think.

BC is not a direct upgrade from Dynamics GP as many people seem to think. Before making the switch, organisations need to take a good look at the product and see if it will meet their requirements; due diligence around competitors is also needed to see if one of those is a better fit.

The writing was on the wall for this when Dynamics GP didn’t receive a SaaS version like AX as F&O and NAV as BC and was one of the reasons for my decision to switch to BC last year.
