I recently had a query from a client about Reporting Ledgers; to answer the query I enabled them in one of my demo VMs. Afterwards, I was faced with a choice; redeploy the sample company or switch off reporting ledgers.
The former was going to take more time than I wanted to spend, but the latter is not possible through the Microsoft Dynamics GP front-end.
I took a quick peek at the tables and found there was only two tables involved in the core product and one in Fixed Asset Management (depending on the installation) and would be easy to update.

If you’ve entered transactions with reporting ledgers switched on, I would advise against running the above script and, if you do run it, make sure you have a good backup first.
