Creating new companies in Dynamics GP, what tables should I copy?

Well the simple answer is don’t, most people don’t realize that you no longer need to DTS setup information into a new company from table to table or even import chart of accounts with integration manager.


We get asked this one a lot on the helpdesk as creating a new company is not something most systems administrators do regularly.

There is a copy company setup tool which will do this for you, simply tick what you want it to copy across. Versions 9 and 10 can be downloaded from automated solutions on the following link

and version 2010 is included in the PSTL tool kit.

It is a lot simpler than using DTS, a word of warning though , be careful when copying company or system specific information you can create redundant entries in tables.
