Disabling Multiple Ledgers functionality in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010...after the fact

Let's face it! Like many things in life, configuration decisions are revisited even after going live (rightfully so!) with your system. What was viewed and considered a requirement a few months aback and worked during User Acceptance Testing turns out to be something the business no longer needs today, due to changes in direction, or changes in business conditions.

Just recently, I came across a request for disabling the new reporting ledgers functionality in Microsoft Dynamics GP 2010. While this implementation was not live, this issue was clearly affecting the consulting teams ability to move forward.

The following script should disable the reporting ledgers function:

UPDATE GL40000 SET Allow_Reporting_Ledgers = 0, UseLedgersForAcctBalance = 0;

Once the script is executed, go back to the General Ledger Setup window. You will notice that a BASE ledger is created by default, but also notice that the Allow flag is unchecked.

Click the Ok button to continue.

Now, if you open the GL Transaction Entry screen, you will notice that the Ledger ID field is no longer present.

Until next post!

Wanted to turn off Ledgers in the test environment today, and searched KB/PS, but didnt find anything. As usual you were there to save the day!

Mariano, I used your script to disable the reporting ledger and now the when using the Finanial-Summary and History Summary inquiries no results are returned. If I access the summary and history windows from the Account Maintenance window the summary and history summary do return results. Any ideas what would cause this? Thank you, Scott
