To remove a company that is no longer being used in Microsoft Dynamics GP, follow these steps:

  1. Select Tools on the Microsoft Dynamics GP menu, point to Utilities > System, and then select Delete Company.

  2. Select the Company Name lookup.

  3. Select the company that you want to delete, select Select, and then select Delete.

  4. Verify that the company database was removed. To do this, follow the steps for the database that you're using with Microsoft Dynamics GP.

    • Microsoft SQL Server

      1. Start SQL Server Management Studio.

      2. Expand the instance of SQL Server for Microsoft Dynamics GP, and then expand Databases.

      3. Verify that the company database was removed. If the company database is listed, right-click the company database, and then select Delete.

        Note

        Replace XXX with the database name of the company that you want to delete.

  5. If the database has been manually removed or removed by the DROP script mentioned in step c of step 4, then there may be some references from the deleted database still within the DYNAMICS/system database. These references need to be removed. To do this, download the ClearCompanies.sql script and then follow the steps:

    • Microsoft SQL Server

      1. Start SQL Server Management Studio.

      2. Select New Query from the menu bar to start a new query window.

      3. Paste the contents of the ClearCompanies.sql scripts into the empty query window.

      4. Select Execute or press F5 to run the script.

        Note

        ClearCompanies.sql is a script that is automatically setup to run against the appropriate databases.

  6. Sign in to Microsoft Dynamics GP to verify the company no longer exists.
