Where Is My Data and How Do I Get to It?

by Chris Backhouse Christopher Liley David Duncan | October 2013 | Enterprise Articles Microsoft

This Article, by David Duncan and Christopher Liley, authors of Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 Reporting, Second Edition, explains that, as a developer or consultant who has been assigned the task of filling user requests for reports should be aware that ultimately the very first question after deciding on the reporting tool is, "Where is my data and how do I get to it?"

Knowing where to begin is a critical first step in the development process. The aim of this article is to provide helpful tips for finding and locating data in the Dynamics GP 2013 ERP system and company databases. Although we'll discuss some reporting tools that do not require us to know the SQL database structure for Dynamics GP companies, it is still helpful to understand how GP stores its data.

In this article, we will discuss the following:

  • Differences between the system database and company databases
  • Conventions that are helpful to know and understand when it comes to Microsoft Dynamics GP 2013 data and how it is stored
  • Using Resource Descriptions as a tool for finding data from within GP 2013
  • Utilizing additional tools, such as the GP 2013 SDK and Support Debugging Tool, to find our data
