Most of you are in the midst of closing 2012 and getting Microsoft Dynamics GP configured for fiscal year 2013. If you are in this process of closing 2012, make sure to check out the Year-End closing procedures series over at the Microsoft Dynamics GP Support and Services team blog:

The past few days however, I have had to address a number of calls asking for a little help deleting fiscal years that have been setup incorrectly. The following screenshot illustrates one of such issues:

So with no Delete button, where do you go?
Well, you can always resort to a little T-SQL to fix the problem by running the following script against the company database:
NOTE: in the above example the fiscal periods were properly setup to reflect 2013 start and end dates, but the year was incorrectly entered as 2103 - fat fingered if you will.
As is customary, please run this and any script against your test environment first to determine if you achieved the expected results. Backup your production databases environment prior to executing.
Once you have executed the script, please proceed to recreate the fiscal year and fiscal periods.
Until next post!
